What services do you provide?
High-precision, high-throughput digital whole-slide tissue and cell analysis is our primary solution. We offer cell detection, cell segmentation, cell classification, tissue typing, cell feature extraction such as cross-sectional area, min/max Feret diameter measurement, as well as other solutions tailored to your project. For clients who have access to physical slides but do not have high-quality digital scans, we also provide a whole-slide scanning service.

What are your turnaround times?
All of our solutions are tailor-made to your project and to your data. A typical project can take roughly two weeks to complete processing during normal conditions.
What kinds of samples do you accept?
Our deep learning-powered technology gives us the flexibility to tackle a broad variety of data. For our analysis services, we accept any and all kinds of staining for analysis. For slide scanning, we only accept brightfield stains for the time being.
How do I transfer my samples to you?
If you already have whole-slide scan files of your slides, a file upload link will be provided for you to upload your data to. For our scanning service, send your physical slides to the following address:
1064 Center Drive
NEB, room 350
Gainesville, FL 32611
All data that we receive must be de-identified of any protected health information.
What kinds of scanning options do you offer?
We currently provide a brightfield slide scanning service at 20x or 40x magnification. Our scan options include normal, high precision, extended depth-of-field (EDOF), and z-stack scanning.
What format can I expect to receive my analysis in?
Our highly customizable solutions allow us to output your analysis in whatever format you would prefer. Typically we return extracted features and measurements in a structured Excel (.xlsx) spreadsheet. If you are looking for a specific format, such as JSON-formatted data, images, or figures, we can also provide these results at no additional cost. However, it may take additional time to process.
How do you verify the quality of your analysis?
Our automatic segmentation results are refined and verified by several of our employees for quality assurance. For measurements and feature extraction, our methods are reported in several studies listed on our successes page.
How do I pay for services rendered?
After we have agreed on a project, one of our associates will issue you an invoice. Once you have received the invoice, log onto your cytoinformatics.com account and select "Payment." We accept all major credit cards including Visa®, MasterCard®, American Express®, Discover®, Diner's Club, and JCB.
Do you offer a free trial?
We allow a free trial for up to three digital images (less than 4,000 by 4,000 pixels) for any staining or tissue type. You can simply email the images to us at firstname.lastname@example.org if possible. Otherwise, we will provide you with a file upload link.
