In collaboration with researchers at Google, Mountain View, Calif, Jenoptik Optical Systems LLC, Jupiter, Fla, has developed an innovative technology to bring artificial intelligence (AI) to conventional microscopy through the overlay of digital content directly onto a commercial-off-the-shelf microscope’s field of view. Using the platform, Google has demonstrated modeling for tumor detection in histopathology slides for both prostate cancer and breast cancer.1

Jenoptik designed and integrated the optomechanical technology by leveraging the company’s systems engineering experience, optical R&D capabilities, and portfolio of intellectual properties across a breadth of innovative applications and industries. The augmented microscope solution benefits from the company’s optical design expertise and a digital imaging platform that Jenoptik has developed over the past decade.

“Our work with Google demonstrates our continued commitment to meeting our customers’ expectations of advancing innovations in different technologies,” says Jay Kumler, president of Jenoptik Optical Systems in North America.

Equipment manufacturers around the globe employ Jenoptik to build and test digital projection, telecommunications equipment, semiconductor devices, mobile devices, augmented reality, industrial automation, and connected vehicles.
