Inspirata to reignite Dynamyx® software platform, ensuring commitments to existing customers while positioning the business for global expansion

 

Tampa, FL, Jan. 31, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cancer informatics and digital pathology workflow solution provider Inspirata®, Inc. announced today that it has acquired Pittsburgh, PA-based Omnyx from GE Healthcare.

Omnyx was an early innovator in bringing brilliant software to pathology departments around the world. The company's flagship digital pathology software product, Dynamyx(TM), enhances the pathology workflow by providing new channels for collaboration and tools to boost efficiency. Combined with Inspirata's solution-as-a service approach, Dynamyx eases adoption challenges and empowers pathologists. The software is CE-marked in Europe and licensed by Health Canada for in vitro diagnostic (IVD) use.

"The acquisition of Omnyx positions Inspirata with the most comprehensive digital pathology workflow solution in the world," says Inspirata CEO Satish Sanan. "It brings us the last mile to reach our goal of having an end-to-end integrated pathology solution with a scanner-agnostic whole slide image viewer and image management system. It also gives us a fully supported IVD device cleared for primary digital diagnosis in Europe and Canada, and it expands our customer base and geographic footprint across those countries."

Inspirata plans to retain Omnyx' office and its employees. The company will use this location and the resources to create a center of excellence for ongoing digital pathology software development. "Our short-term plan is to rapidly combine the advantages of our digital pathology software platform and the Dynamyx platform by converging them onto a shared, state-of-the-art technology stack," continues Sanan.

"Inspirata has shown a strong commitment to promoting the adoption of digital pathology to improve cancer diagnostics," says Omnyx CEO Andrew Chomos. "By combining our platforms, we will be able to offer a device and application agnostic solution in both Europe and Canada that can integrate with pathology departments' existing hardware and health information systems."

Iconovo: kundprojekt blir framflyttat tre till sex månader8.11.2018 15:45Pressmeddelande

Fortsatt arbete med ett av Iconovos pågående kundprojekt kommer att flyttas fram tre till sex månader. Projektet avser utveckling av produkt anpassad för kund som ska svara för produktion och marknadslansering. Det aktuella arbetet var planerat att ske under fjärde kvartalet men beräknas ske under nästa år, och detta påverkar Iconovos omsättning under 2018 negativt med cirka 2 miljoner kronor. Orsaken är att kunden har beslutat att genomföra en mindre klinisk studie för att verifiera produkten innan nästa steg tas vilken omfattar investeringar i betydande mångmiljonbelopp i produktionskapacitet, baserat på Iconovos utveckling. Studien görs för kundens egna räkning och är inte villkorad av tillsynsmyndigheter. "Detta påverkar vårt resultat på kort sikt, men det faktum att kunden har beslutat att göra en betydande investering i faktisk produktion betyder att vi med stor säkerhet kan se fram emot licensintäkter under en lång tidsrymd framöver i samband med att produkten lanseras på markna
