microDimensions, global provider of state-of-the-art digital pathology software and services, won Definiens as one of their customers. Definiens is the pioneer in Tissue Phenomics® solutions for diagnostics development and commercialization and was recently acquired by MedImmune, the biologics research and development arm of AstraZeneca.

As a new customer of microDimensions, Definiens will be combining microDimensions’ co-registration technology with their own technology to enhance the work of their internal research team in immuno-oncology. The goal is to automatically align immunohistochemically stained serial tissue sections with unprecedented speed and accuracy. This, for instance, enables the computation of spatially resolved, highly multiplexed readouts which are required to discover highly predictive diagnostic biomarkers for personalized cancer treatment.

“The co-registration functionality of microDimensions’ technology is unrivaled in terms of speed and accuracy,” says Dr. Günter Schmidt, Vice President Research at Definiens. “Using the cutting-edge algorithms of microDimensions incorporated into Definiens’ Tissue Phenomics technology will considerably accelerate our phene discovery process for immune-mediated cancer therapies.”
