Bench-to-Bedside Transition of Novel HALO® Assays into Clinical Trials with HALO AP®

Date: 10 December 2021
Time: 8:00 – 9:00 PST | 11:00 – 12:00 EST | 16:00 – 17:00 GMT
Location: Webinar



Transitioning novel assays underpinned by quantitative image analysis to a clinical environment may seem a daunting task. Whereas research and discovery image analysis workflows are more flexible and open, clinical image analysis assays must be locked down.

The HALO AP platform can help to bridge this gap. In this 1-hour webinar, featured speakers will demonstrate end-to-end how to develop a quantitative assay in HALO and transition it into clinical trials using HALO AP

In this free webinar, the featured speakers will discuss the use of quantitative image analysis assays in clinical settings. The presentation will feature how to create an image analysis algorithm in HALO and HALO AI™, and how a custom assay builder can create a stepwise, guided assay workflow. Attendees will learn how the case review and collaboration tools within HALO AP can be used for management and monitoring in clinical trials.

Learning Objectives

  • Create an image analysis algorithm in HALO and HALO AI
  • Use the custom assay builder of HALO AP to create a stepwise, guided assay workflow
  • Import HALO and HALO AI algorithms into custom assays
  • Sign and lock custom quantitative assays to prevent tampering
  • Use the case review and collaboration tools within HALO AP for management of clinical trials
  • Monitor clinical trial status using the HALO AP clinical trial dashboard
