Augmentiqs has developed the world’s first electro-optical module for the microscope with digital pathology applications embedded inside. With its ability to work with any existing microscope, Augmentiqs allows pathologists to capture high resolution images, access pathology software in real-time and interact with the software via augmented reality of the microscope eyepiece.
With a clear value proposition for the pathology laboratory, proven technology and compelling revenue model, Augmentiqs was accepted to the 2nd Luminate cohort for innovative optics companies. Following the completion of the optics cohort, Augmentiqs has since expanded its presence in Rochester, working with over 10 engineers on the development of next-generation microscope technologies.
“Rochester is one of the largest eco-systems for optics, and the talent from the local universities has proven to be a win-win situation for Augmentiqs and Luminate. Engineers with experience in digital pathology and pathology informatics have joined the Augmentiqs team, having made Augmentiq’s participation in Luminate well worth the effort for both the company and the State of New York,” said Luminate Managing Director, Dr. Sujatha Ramanujan.
Augmentiqs is an electro-optic module that evolutionizes the existing infinity-corrected microscopes. Augmentiqs connects the microscope with the PC, transforming them into smart & connected devices capable of deploying digital pathology applications.
Placed in the optical path above the nosepiece and below the eyepiece, Augmentiqs maintains normal viewing of the optical plane of the microscope, allowing the microscope user to continue viewing and working the tissue specimen in the same manner while providing advantages in workflow, collaboration and diagnostic capabilities.
