HALO® Module

Tissue Classifier Add-On

The Tissue Classifier Add-on utilizes a state-of-the-art machine learning algorithm to identify tissue types based on color, texture, and contextual features. Utilizing a “learn-by-example” approach, the user highlights a few distinct tissue types and within seconds the software learns to categorize tissue. The tissue classifier add-on module runs within/ is embedded in the HALO platform and can be used in conjunction with any of our cell-based analysis modules for BF or FL analysis, ultimately minimizing manual outlining of regions of interest.

File formats supported by the HALO image analysis platform:

  • Non-proprietary (JPG, TIF, OME.TIFF)
  • Nikon (ND2)
  • 3D Histech (MRXS)
  • Akoya (QPTIFF, component TIFF)
  • Olympus / Evident (VSI)
