"With the GenASIs HiPath, ASI is proud to offer pathologists an important, easy to use solution to improve workflow and obtain reliable clinical results."
ASI noted that the platform is an advanced image analysis platform for IHC and CISH samples that incorporates with existing lab microscopes and workflows, offering labs with a cost-effective solution for digital pathology.
The GenASIs platform has FDA approval for BandView Karyotyping, FISHView, SpotScan for CEP XY, UroVysion, ALK and HER2/neu FISH, and HiPath for IHC Family of HER2, ER, PR and Ki67.
