Lunaphore and Visiopharm Announce New Partnership to Offer Spatial Biology Research Solution With Deep Learning Technology

Share

Lunaphore, a Swiss life sciences company developing technology to enable spatial biology in every laboratory, and Visiopharm, a company developing A.I.-driven precision pathology software, today announced a new partnership that will unite staining and imaging with A.I. analysis capabilities. Under the partnership, the companies will co-market a complete end-to-end solution that offers hyperplex immunofluorescence staining, image acquisition, and subsequent analysis with deep learning.

The combined offering will include Lunaphore’s COMET™, which can perform automated, hyperplex immunofluorescence staining and imaging, and Visiopharm’s Oncotopix® Discovery, an easy-to-use deep learning solution for tissue-based cancer research. COMET™ and Oncotopix® Discovery are compatible natively, and the combined offering provides an all-encompassing, interoperable spatial biology and data analysis solution for researchers.

Visiopharm is a world leader in A.I.-driven precision pathology software with over two decades experience pioneering innovation in digital pathology and partnering with the most recognized names in tissue-based disease research. With the launch of Oncotopix® Discovery, the most robust version of their respected research image analysis software platform to date, Visiopharm brings the power of deep learning to all. Oncotopix® Discovery allows any scientist, not just image analysis experts, to use their understanding of tissue morphology to train an A.I. deep learning APP to get accurate and reproducible data. The software also features the Multiplex Phenotyping module, an essential tool for investigating the tumor microenvironment revealed by staining platforms such as Lunaphore’s COMET™.

“The technology for staining and imaging multiplexed images is improving rapidly. However, the challenge is how to make sense of what is there,” says James Mansfield, Senior Vice President, Research Business Development at Visiopharm. “How do we interpret highplex staining in a way that not only reveals meaningful insights but does so accurately and reproducibly? That has been our focus from the beginning in developing our Multiplex Phenotyping module. We give researchers a beginning-to-end solution to create a cell phenotype map of the tissue microenvironment and then a set of helpful visualization tools like t-SNE plots and matrixes to verify and interpret the data.”

“That is where we see a powerful synergy between Visiopharm and Lunaphore,” Mansfield continued. “We are both interested in arming researchers with tools to conduct spatial biology analysis that deliver reproducible results. This is essential for true advancement to be made in both basic and especially translational studies.”

With superior tissue profiling capabilities, the COMET™ platform allows a multiplex analysis of up to 40 separate spatial markers per tissue slide without human intervention. COMET™ has a wide range of research applications across immuno-oncology, neuroscience, and infectious diseases.

“Our partnership with Visiopharm allows us to create a unified technology solution that can enhance our understanding of cancer pathology,” said Déborah Heintze, Chief Marketing Officer of Lunaphore. “By combining our leading spatial biology platform with Visiopharm’s deep learning capabilities, this collaboration can make it easier for laboratories to adopt and integrate spatial biology solutions for their research.”
