Proscia, provider of digital and computational pathology solutions, announced that Pramana, Inc., an AI-enabled health tech company modernizing the pathology sector, is now a Proscia Ready partner. Pramana joins the partner alliance to help life sciences organizations and diagnostic laboratories increasingly leverage enriched, high-quality data, including DICOM images, in their routine research and clinical operations, the company says.

Proscia Ready was established to help laboratories accelerate the scaled adoption of digital pathology with confidence, the company says. It offers the freedom to choose from established hardware and software solutions; Proscia’s Concentriq enterprise pathology platform is designed to integrate with partners’ technologies and incorporate them into the diverse workflows it drives. Through their partnership, Proscia and Pramana will work to integrate Pramana’s SpectralHT family of scanners with Concentriq, enabling laboratories to benefit from Pramana’s unique approach to whole slide imaging in daily practice.

“Pramana is expanding the potential of pathology data,” says Arun Ananth, Proscia’s chief commercial officer. “It is empowering pathologists and scientists with richer images so that they can make more informed decisions and enabling them to capitalize on the standardization that DICOM provides. We are thrilled to welcome Pramana to Proscia Ready so that customers can increasingly realize these benefits.”

Pramana’s SpectralHT family of scanners provides automatic quality assessment and image enrichment with valuable metadata, all in a standardized DICOM format. The company’s in-line quality assurance module delivers whole slide images with the highest rate of first-pass success while also storing critical information that can help identify areas for improvement in lab practices for sample preparation.

“Our SpectralHT family of scanners continues to gain traction because of the enriched, high-quality images that they create at scale,” says Mike Koenig, Pramana’s chief business officer. “Joining Proscia Ready was an easy decision for us. The partners understand all that laboratories need to maximize the value of this data, paving the way to accelerate research and diagnosis.”

Proscia Ready is an alliance of solution providers helping laboratories to confidently grow their use of digital pathology. As scaling digital pathology adoption requires a broad portfolio of hardware and software solutions, the partners offer a comprehensive approach that enables laboratories to overcome the complexities of working with multiple vendors.
