Colon Cancer Companion Algorithms
Biomarker and tissue type specific
BioImagene, Sunnyvale, Calif, introduces Companion Algorithms™ for colon cancer in its Virtuoso™ digital pathology software. Companion Algorithms are specific to both biomarker and tissue type. The new colon panel will assist in the quantitation of immunohistochemistry stains for four mismatch repair biomarkers: MLH1, MSH2, MSH6, and PMS2. BioImagene currently offers more than 100 Companion Algorithms, including the breast panel consisting of HER2, ER/PR, and p53; Ki67 for brain, GI, and prostate cancers; CD138 for multiple myeloma; and CD3/CD20 for lymphoma.
