OptraSCAN believes that this patent is an important milestone in defending their exclusive artificial intelligence and machine learning-based automated image analysis solution; especially created for nuclear & membrane biomarker, immune-oncology, prostate cancer, and cytology imaging.

“Innovation in digital pathology is critical for us to improve patient care and OptraSCAN is playing a pivotal role in inventing new technologies in this area. This patent is a strong testament to OptraSCAN’s pioneering efforts in research and development of cancer biomarkers that will help to advance patient care and research worldwide,” said Dr. Jiaoti Huang, Chairman – Medical Advisory Board, OptraSCAN and Chair – Pathology at Duke University.

This patent will pave the way for the recently launched OS-SiA, OptraSCAN’s next-gen AI-enabled digital scanner. OS-SiA is world’s first smart scanner that automatically identifies regions to SCAN and simultaneously analyzes the tissue or cell area being scanned. Founded by Abhi Gholap, OptraSCAN has a patent on slide scanning device granted by USPTO recently.
