NEW YORK, Nov. 24 (GenomeWeb News) - Definiens will partner with tissue microarray-instrumentation provider Beecher Instruments to develop software for tissue microarray image analysis, the firm said last week.
Under the terms of the agreement, Beecheris using Definiens' Cognition Network Technology to develop applications for automated tissue microarray analysis.
Current image analysis software requires extensive user interaction to properly identify cell populations, select regions of interest for scoring, optimize analysis parameters, and organize the resulting raw data, Definiens said. The suite of tools that Beecherhas developed with Definiens' technology, called TMAx, can automate this process, according to the companies.
