Halo is the simply the best whole-slide analysis software available.
"Halo is simply the best whole-slide analysis software available. We have a large core facility, scanning over 15,000 brightfield and 2,000 fluorescence slides per year (plus many confocal microscopes, etc.). For whole-slide analysis, we formerly used Genie (from Aperio), and InForm (from Perkin Elmer), and we have collaborators using Definiens (no longer available) and Visiopharm. But now we have over 50 users per month working on Halo and the other platforms have been virtually shut down. Halo is very easy to get up and running - within a 2 hour session we can get a new user started with their own classification and cell counting application. Most users run a batch analysis overnight and collect and review their results in the morning. The team at Indica Labs are quick to respond when we have a challenging analysis project - they will WebEx in and help optimize the parameters. They have the experience (and courage) to tell us if the staining is just not suitable or a more complex classifier is required."
