The right technology should feel like an extension of you – enhancing your capabilities and generating data that is not only accurate but meaningful to your research questions.
Visiopharm’s Oncotopix® Discovery for research is built with a foundation based in artificial intelligence deep learning and designed to be used by scientists. Tissue mining is more than simple image analysis, it’s finding the answers to your questions, making new discoveries and finding new treatments.
The wait is over
Digital image analysis using deep learning will help you get more accomplished, from automated nuclei detection to finding meaningful populations in multiplex data.
Vary your samples, not your analysis
Applications that use deep learning mean that your analysis will be robust, even with heterogeneous samples and variable stains.
Complexity made simple
Find meaningful populations from highly complex marker panels and compare across experiments, without having to learn a new software language.
We speak science
Image analysis that’s built to enable your work and move your research forward, wherever the data takes you.
More capabilities with deep learning
Integrating deep learning to image analysis allows robust and reliable detection of structures, which due to a high natural heterogeneity have been challenging to detect with machine learning only. Deep learning based algorithms identify rules from the underlying patterns in the image, using examples instead of code.
Deep learning in image analysis
Our deep learning capabilities can be easily combined with classical image analysis to get the best out of both worlds. Users can train their own algorithms from scratch, tailored to their need or use – and adapt – our pre-build and ready-to-use AI APPs.
Various image analysis algorithms in oncology depend on a reliable tumor-stroma separation prior to the detailed analysis to ensure precise data generation. Our deep learning based tumor detection for IHC accurately identifies regions of epithelial tumor cells and can be combined with a variety of ready-to-use or customized subsequent analysis algorithms for your research.
Lymph node metastasis
This module has been trained to detect metastases in H&E stained lymph nodes associated with breast and colorectal adenocarcinoma. The Metastasis Detection APP for research results in improved sensitivity and specificity of metastasis detection in lymph nodes from colorectal and breast adenocarcinoma.
Consistent and robust nuclei detection is the base of a large majority of tissue image analysis algorithms. With advanced nucleus pleomorphism it is increasingly difficult – albeit important – to accurately segment the nuclei. Our deep learning based Nuclei Detection APP reliably segments challenging cases in a large variety of stainings.
Accurately identify glomeruli in kidney sections stained with a wide range of antibodies for a large variety of kidney research. This ready-to-use analysis can be combined with any subsequent stain specific algorithm for individual measurements.

The right AI for the right job
Not all tissue is built alike. Knowing when to use the right technology to get accurate, reproducible results is what you should expect from image analysis software. Each APP created in the Visiopharm software is created and tested using real-world data to ensure that the science behind the results is sound and APP performance is optimal.
Cutting-edge tissue mining
Find and analyze tissue and cellular structures with a wide array of ready-to-use precision algorithms. Create bespoke precision algorithms with AI to find specific tissue and cellular structures for your samples. Automatically phenotype cells in highly multiplex tissue samples or across multiple serial sections.
Powerful data management tools
With Visiopharm software you get not only an ever-expanding suite of sophisticated analysis algorithms, you also get essential data management tools to make sense of the results.
- Create customizable data tables by querying images or cells for intensity, morphology, proximity, and more
- Sort images based on calculated metrics using interactive data tables and display tools
“Visiopharm is able to handle the very complex processes”
“Basically Visiopharm allows us to explore areas of research that typically would be very manual, a very subjective practice. What this tool allows us to do is essentially identify things that would be very difficult and allows us to get data that otherwise we wouldn’t be able to obtain.
Visiopharm is able to handle the very complex processes, very complex images, and then we are able to utilize it’s capabilities to get the data you need”.
“This software is different than all the others”
I chose Visiopharm because this software is different than all the others, it’s very versatile. It’s different than the black box software where it comes with a pre-programmed set of modules.
“Visiopharm’s possibilities are virtually endless”
“I think that the huge benefit of Visiopharm is that you can develop your own customized algorithms. A lot more efficient than you can do with other software products. The possibilities are virtually endless.”
