Definiens to Introduce New Generation of Products for Tissue-based Biomarker Research at the International Definiens Symposium

MUNICH, Sept. 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Definiens, the leading Health Image Intelligence™ company, announces that it will release a new generation of products at the International Definiens Symposium at the Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa, FL on October 17–18. The annual symposium is the premier forum for Definiens users and developers from around the world to present the latest applications, research and workflows in life science image and data analysis. One focus of this year's symposium will be tissue-based biomarker research and image analysis in clinical trials. The high-caliber program will include a speaker panel with key opinion leaders from industry and academia.

Definiens Tissue Studio® software has already been established as an industry standard. Building on the company's vast background in biomedical image analysis and biomarker research, existing products for image analysis, such as Tissue Studio, will be significantly improved, with a focus on Quantitative Digital Pathology.  In addition, a completely new component will be added to Definiens' suite of products, which will allow users to leverage the enormous value of received measurements and data. This component will closely integrate image analysis with data and image mining.

The technology will provide high accuracy in automatically identifying relevant structures of interest and specific morphology in histology, resulting in a detailed phenotypic fingerprint and biomarker expression profile on a cell-by-cell basis. The large set of descriptors can be correlated against therapy response or patient outcome with the goal to identify new types of biomarkers of predictive or prognostic value.

"It is clear that today only a small portion of the information contained in tissue biopsies is used for research or diagnosis and the interpretation is subjective," says Thomas Heydler, CEO of Definiens.  "With the statistical power of many detailed readouts from a tumor specimen combined with our new data mining capabilities, we are addressing the needs of scientists and exploring new possibilities in tissue-based biomarker development."

In recent years, Definiens has generated a large footprint over the entire bandwidth of biomedical applications, specifically in the field of Quantitative Digital Pathology and Biomarker Research, which continues to expand with the upcoming additions to the company's suite of products.
