news inform

Inform Diagnostics, a leading national pathology lab, has launched the Paige FullFocus digital pathology viewer in its laboratories. Adoption of the new technology allows pathologists at Inform Diagnostics to use AI tools, streamline logistics, and achieve faster turnaround times of results.

FullFocus™ is a secure, scalable, intuitive, and responsive viewer for digital pathology slides, and a data management solution for storing the slides.

“This is a tremendous milestone in the company’s history”, said Inform Diagnostics CEO Darryl Goss. “As an organization committed to putting patients first, FullFocus™ will enable pathologists to gain better insights from samples and provide results to clinicians and their patients quicker. The viewer brings us closer to our vision of being the trusted partner of choice at the forefront of technological innovation in patient diagnostics.”

According to Anuradha Singhal, M.D., Chief Medical Officer at Inform Diagnostics, there are multiple benefits associated with using FullFocus:

  • Remote internal and client pathologists can sign out cases from digital images without waiting for glass slides to be shipped.
  • Digital archiving/storage allows for instant access to the images of past cases.
  • Multiple pathologists can review images simultaneously for added quality assurance.
  • AI technology can review the slide images and serve as a preliminary stratification tool for pathologists to prioritize cases requiring additional work up.

“We are excited to partner with Inform Diagnostics as they digitize their pathology workflows to deliver better clinical insights to clinicians and ultimately their patients,” said Andy Moye, Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer at Paige. “The deployment of FullFocus is a testament to the scalability of Paige’s software and capabilities to support the needs of a large commercial operation.”

FullFocus™ has received FDA clearance for its viewer software and Paige is also the first software company in the United States to receive FDA approval for AI software in digital pathology (Paige Prostate).
