Why pathology

The pathology industry is beset with increasing caseload and diagnostic complexity, against a globally declining number of pathologists to service the workload.

Digital Pathology, seen as a great potential for productivity enhancement, has not fully delivered on that promise. Some ROI studies have, at best, demonstrated marginally positive return on investment with others demonstrating negative impact on cost post implementation.

We believe that digital pathology combined with artificial intelligence will help make pathologists work more efficiently in the future, and offers a solution to the pending crisis in supply/demand in pathology services.

Deciphex plan to be at the forefront of this revolution with cleverly positioned solutions, that deliver on the biggest problems facing pathology today.


What Makes us Different?

Workflow Solutions

Solutions not Toolkits:

Ergonomic workflows integrated with artificial intelligence to optimise pathologist productivity is key in delivery of Deciphex solutions.

Big Data

Triage not Diagnosis:

Deciphex places the emphasis on triaging out of high volume, low complexity samples, allowing pathologists the time needed to focus on difficult, more challenging content.

Workflow Solutions

Quality and Quantity:

Deciphex are focussed on integrating the highest quality proprietary annotated data sets for deep learning development and validation.

Big Data

Targeted Application Space:

Deciphex targets Human Gastrointestinal and Toxicologic Pathology use cases rather than attempting a one size fits all approach.
