Augmentiqs Pathology

We’re Redefining Digital Pathology

The microscope is still the instrument of choice for pathologists. It’s fast, efficient and found on every pathologist’s desk. The Augmentiqs digital pathology solution embraces & enhances the existing microscope, helping pathologists work more effectively, connect remotely with colleagues and conduct ground-breaking research. The result is pathology that’s smarter, faster, and more cost-effective.

Augmentiqs was started with the input of the world’s leading pathologists, and focuses on developing technologies that integrate with and enhance the pathologist’s microscope & workflow.

Augmentiqs integrates into the existing microscope, transforming it into a connected device. Real-time telepathology, augmented reality, high-resolution imaging, artificial intelligence, computer-assisted diagnostics and LIS integration are some of the many benefits that Augmentiqs is bringing to pathology labs across the globe.  By bridging a live, online connection between pathologists and the digital health infrastructure, Augmentiqs is enabling better clinical outcomes, reduced costs, and more efficient workflow.

By turning the existing microscope into a smart and connected device, Augmentiqs is redefining the way people think of digital pathology.

Company History

Augmentiqs was founded in 2016 by alumni of the digital pathology industry who believed current digital pathology solutions were not adequately meeting the true needs of pathologists in terms of workflow or clinical value, nor was there enough cost-savings to justify the expense of capital equipment.

 

The original concept for Augmentiqs revolved around augmented reality of the existing microscope, and the ability for pathologists to access computer-assisted diagnostic tools inside the microscope eyepiece. 

By performing image analysis directly on optical view of the glass slide, pathologists can work faster and improve clinical excellence.

However, we very quickly realized that the advantages and possibilities of digitizing the microscope extend way beyond computer-assisted diagnosis. The microscope is still an analog instrument disconnected from all the digital tools that have become commonplace in other medical specialties.

With a slight widening of focus, Augmentiqs has integrated real time telepathology, automatic reporting and LIS connectivity, making Augmentiqs a robust digital pathology system.

Today, Augmentiqs is changing the entire concept of digital pathology by enabling vital toolsets within the classic workflow, including artificial intelligence and open-source computer-assisted diagnosis via an Open API. By creating a digital pathology ecosystem within the existing microscope, Augmentiqs is truly redefining digital pathology.

With an eye towards the future, Augmetiqs is continuing to develop new microscope technologies that will utilize augmented reality and innovative software to enhance the microscopy workflow.

Augmentiqs is the first to provide augmented reality of the existing microscope.
