ARIA DIAGNOSTICS, SIGTUPLE, AND FDAMAP COLLABORATE ON DIGITAL PATHOLOGY BREAKTHROUGH
Indianapolis, October 24, 2023
Aria Diagnostics, a central clinical laboratory specializing in advanced diagnostic testing, announces the U.S. FDA 510(k) clearance for SigTuple's novel artificial intelligence based peripheral blood smear application AI100 with ShonitTM, transforming disease detection and diagnosis. Aria Diagnostics served as the central laboratory for patient testing and platform validation testing while CRO, FDAMap, aided in project administration and management.
This approval marks a critical advancement in the world of clinical pathology. The AI100 with ShonitTM is an in-vitro diagnostic device designed to automate manual microscopy in a diagnostic laboratory by digitally imaging physical samples. SigTuple’s advanced AI models extract and classify each cell into over 30 different cell types, providing precision and efficiency in the pathology diagnostic process.
For all hematological disorders, such as blood cancers, infections, anemia, and allergies, the microscopic examination of the peripheral blood smear (PBS) is the gold standard test, but microscopy today is predominantly a manual process, necessitating a highly skilled pathologist to be present on-site. At a time when only 14 qualified pathologists exists per 1 million people, manners to increase the speed, consistency, and accuracy of digital pathology are crucial to improving patient care.
This device automates one of the last remaining manual pieces in the clinical review process, improving lab workflow (and thus throughput) and enabling remote pathology review. Through automation and purposeful AI, we can now expedite disease detection and diagnosis,” said Vipin Adhlakha, President and Clinical Lead at Aria Diagnostics.
