Applied Spectral Imaging (ASI) Reveals Advanced FISH Solutions That Deliver Ultra-fast Imaging Analysis

PathFusion scanners for FISH, H&E and IHC imaging and analysis offer laboratories an all-in-one solution from scanning to reporting. In addition, the comprehensive pathology suite expedites more slide scanning volumes, improves diagnostic accuracy and optimizes the overall workflow process.

Applied Spectral Imaging Launches Two New Products for the Digital Pathology Market

The PathFusion system is a cutting-edge workflow solution, bridging the gap between Brightfield pathology and FISH. Combining microscope-based Whole Slide Imaging, industry-leading Tissue FISH applications and revolutionary digital tissue matching of FISH with H&E/IHC samples, it provides accurate and validated analysis for higher diagnostic confidence.

Applied Spectral Imaging announced today that its GenASIs applications comply with CE-IVD requirements with the IQFISH lung cancer panel on Dako Omnis of Agilent Technologies Inc.

CARLSBAD, California, january 11, 2017

Applied Spectral Imaging (ASI) announced today that its GenASIsTM applications comply with CE-IVD requirements under the European Directive on In Vitro Diagnostic Medical Devices, for automated analysis with the IQFISH lung cancer panel on Dako Omnis (comprising of ALK, ROS1, RET and MET IQFISH probes) of Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A).

This clearance delivers to pathology labs the best of both worlds – ASI’s unmatched workflow efficiencies and enhanced accuracy, with Agilent’s new high-quality IQFISH lung cancer panel. The result ensures optimal performance and standardization of FISH analysis, without compromising the laboratories’ certification standards.

“This latest CE-IVD conformity is evidence of our commitment to improve patient care. Laboratories can now have a fully optimized FISH workflow with greater image quality, that negates the time-consuming and costly need for internal validation,” said Limor Shiposh, chief executive officer of ASI. “Being recognized for our industry-leading FISH imaging platforms, ASI is proud to be the first to market imaging platforms that are CE-IVD conformed with Agilent’s new IQFISH lung cancer panel. We are certain that this solution will rapidly become the new gold standard for pathologists in Fluorescence-based molecular analysis”, Mrs. Shiposh added.

Agilent Technologies and Applied Spectral Imaging Announce Co-Marketing Agreement for Fluorescence In Situ Hybridization

Thursday, April 7, 2016
SANTA CLARA and CARLSBAD, Calif., April 7, 2016

Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) and Applied Spectral Imaging (ASI) today announced they have entered into an agreement to jointly market ASI’s most advanced GenASIs imaging platforms and Agilent’s fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) products and solutions, including its Dako Omnis instrument for automated FISH sample processing.

This agreement is expected to bring to pathology labs the components for a fully automated, end-to-end FISH workflow.

“We are excited to work with ASI,” said Herman Verrelst, vice president and general manager of Agilent’s Genomics Solutions Division and Clinical Applications Division. “Difficulty of fluorescence-based molecular analysis has always been a major pain point for our customers. We anticipate that Agilent’s broad portfolio of FISH reagents and instruments, and ASI’s industry-leading computer-aided imaging solutions, will address such critical customer needs and enable laboratories to have a standardized, efficient and high-quality FISH workflow.”

“ASI is proud to partner with Agilent, a global leader in diagnostics that shares our main objective to make patient care better,” said Limor Shiposh, chief executive officer of ASI. “This agreement will position both companies to support customers in all stages of workflows.”
