Cytoinformatics LLC is a technology company that specializes in extracting insights from biomedical images. Founded in 2012, Cytoinformatics is headquartered in Lexington, Kentucky. Immunohistochemistry (IHC) is a basic and essential tool used with great frequency in research and diagnostic laboratories. By combining immunological, anatomical and biochemical techniques, the technician can identify discrete components of tissue by the interaction of antigens with specific antibodies tagged with a label that is visible. IHC is one of the most commonly performed analyses at Cytoinformatics.
IHC serves many purposes, including disease diagnosis, as a tool in the development of drugs and in biological research. Physicians rely upon IHC to identify tumors as benign or malignant, to stage and grade tumors and to identify cell type and origin of metastasis to find the site of a primary tumor. IHC is an excellent detection technique with the distinct advantage of being able to show where a particular protein is located within the tissue that is being examined.
IHC is one of the many digital pathology image analysis services performed by the experts at Cytoinformatics. The leaders of Cytoinformatics brought a depth of experience in microscopic image analysis, digital pathology and computer vision when they started their work together. These foundational skills and much more have propelled the growth of Cytoinformatics to the point that clients are now able to avail themselves of a broad range of digital pathology services, including IHC staining, through Cytoinformatics. Pathology image analysis has changed tremendously over the last several years, particularly due to the advent of whole-slide imaging, resulting in an array of precise and efficient pathology testing tools to assess patients, disease, treatment and medical research and Cytoinformatics has grown exponentially.
