Pharma Assay Services provide 2 levels of analysis performed by scientific experts and pathologists. The level of analysis required for your project is your choice.
Sample is visually scored based on the average number of dots per cell using the following criteria:
SpotStudio software is a custom-designed algorithm developed by ACD in partnership with Definiens, the tissue phenomics company, which enables quantitative analysis of gene expression with single molecule sensitivity. The software implements an object-oriented image analysis framework that extracts features of interest by building a hierarchical network of objects based on color, shape, and context. The software is compatible with brightfield, singleplex image data captured using whole slide scanners and microscopes, making it a versatile and accurate option.
HALO™ image analysis software is offered by Indica Labs and through ACD’s Pharma Assay Services to provide new image analysis capabilities for RNAscope® singleplex, 2-plex, and multiplex assays. Simplifying the quantification of complex RNAscope® expression data, we will utilize newly developed HALO algorithms designed for this purpose. HALO provides interactive results with real-time readout, and the software reports individual cell data and maintains an interactive link between cell metrics and cell imagery.
