With inveox’s proprietary machine, dozens of sample containers can be loaded and processed simultaneously. The machine identifies the sample, photographs the tissue for further documentation, and removes the formalin while transferring the sample into a biopsy cassette. Afterwards, encoded with the same identification number as the sample container, the biopsy cassette is dispensed from the machine and ready for further processing. All of this allows a higher throughput of samples for the lab and technicians, who are now free to focus on value-adding tasks.
In addition to sample preparation, the machine is equipped with an image recognition module. The use of highly-sensitive industrial cameras in conjunction with special algorithms opens up new doors for the entire sample entry process. Histopathology data is digitized, automated, and structured for the first time. This enables the use of data mining, artificial intelligence and, ultimately, opens the door to a truly personalized therapy.
