HistoRx Receives Fundamental Patent on Standardization of Results In Digital Pathology
Date:3/21/2011

BRANFORD, Conn., March 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- HistoRx, Inc., announced today that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has granted a patent protecting the company's methods for standardization of digital microscopy instruments in order to go beyond imaging to generating high-quality reproducible data that precisely relates to biomarker concentrations in tissue sections.

Digital pathology involves taking digital pictures of an anatomic pathology specimen, a slide with cells or a thinly-sliced piece of tissue, and managing the interpretation and storage of the resulting images.  While most companies involved in digital pathology emphasize generation and storage of images for interpretation, HistoRx is the only company to bring reproducibility, or standardization, to those images, to quantify protein in tissue for accurate biomarker measurement.

"This patent covers HistoRx's unique ability to ensure that multiple instruments performing the same test, whether in one or many locations, can give the same result for a patient's slide," said Jason Christiansen, Senior Director of Operations at HistoRx and the lead inventor.  "We don't make digital microscopy systems, we make digital microscopy systems better."

Quantitative IHC (qIHC) is only as good as the image from which the data is derived.  Robust quantitative data can only be achieved from reproducible images, generated with information from standardized digital microscopy instruments.  HistoRx is the first company to address standardization of digital microscopy instruments to deliver high quality reproducible data that precisely relates to biomarker concentrations in tissue sections -- data that is essential to the development and delivery of personalized cancer care.

The patented approach applies to qIHC, as well as all uses of digital microscopy and establishes the definition for standardization and reproducibility in both brightfield and fluorescent digital pa
