NIR Digital Pathology


The latest innovation from Curadel is in the field of digital pathology. Surprisingly, clinical pathology has remained fundamentally unchanged since 1878, the year that the hematoxylin and eosin (H&E) stain was first introduced. Pathologists spend years learning pattern recognition techniques to find cancer and other diseases after staining a glass slide with H&E. Curadel’s FLARE® Pathology Platform, however, will enable pathologists to easily find single cancer cells anywhere they are hiding in a biopsy or surgical specimen and can use a computer to either assist the pathologist in quickly finding suspicious areas or even automatically quantifying the presence or absence of disease.
