LabCorp and Philips collaborate on digital pathology to enhance the efficiency of pathology diagnostics

June 28, 2018

LabCorp, a global life sciences company that is integrated in guiding patient care, and Royal Philips, a health technology company, announced a collaboration to further advance digital pathology. Through the implementation of the Philips IntelliSite Pathology Solution, LabCorp will incorporate digitized workflows within its anatomic pathology services, which are a component of its comprehensive clinical laboratory and end-to-end drug development services.

Philips IntelliSite Pathology Solution is a digital pathology solution marketed for primary diagnostic use in the U.S. It aids pathologists in the review and interpretation of digital images of surgical pathology slides that are prepared from formalin-fixed paraffin embedded (FFPE) tissue, with the goal of providing improved turnaround times and supporting the precise analysis of tissue samples. LabCorp will initially implement the system in four of its laboratories, and it will also work with its interested customers to evaluate their potential transition to digital pathology.

Philips IntelliSite Pathology Solution is an automated digital pathology image creation, viewing and management system comprised of an ultra-fast scanner, an image management system, and a display. This solution contains advanced software tools to manage the scanning, storage, presentation, reviewing, and sharing of images. By supporting the transition to digital workflows, Philips seeks to help pathology laboratories simplify access to histopathology information and implement more efficient workflows.
