Press Release: Deep Bio successfully integrates DeepDx® Prostate algorithm into HALO AP® platform from Indica Labs

Seoul, South Korea, and Albuquerque, NM – August 9, 2022 – Deep Bio, a company concentrating on SaMD (Software as a Medical Device) for digital pathology, offering clinically validated, AI-based DeepDx® algorithms, and Indica Labs, a leading provider of computational pathology software and services, are excited to announce the successful integration of the DeepDx® Prostate algorithm into the HALO AP® platform from Indica Labs.

DeepDx® Prostate is a CE-marked, AI-based image analysis algorithm that detects prostate cancer in core needle biopsies and grades their severity according to the Gleason scoring system. DeepDx® Prostate is designed to alleviate the shortage of pathologists and their heavy workload, while reducing diagnostic subjectivity and variability. Validation testing of the DeepDx® algorithm, published in Modern Pathology 2022, demonstrated 99% sensitivity and 97% specificity. The algorithm is also extensively tested in real clinical workflows, analyzing over 700,000 cores between 2019 and 2021.

The HALO AP® platform was developed by Indica Labs to address the specific needs of anatomic pathology labs by supporting a wide range of tissue-based workflows, including primary diagnosis, secondary consults, tumor boards, clinical trials, synoptic reporting, quantitative analytics, and AI. HALO AP® incorporates state-of-the-art workflow management tools allowing users to easily integrate quantitative analytics and AI tools built using HALO®, HALO AI™ and third-party algorithms, such as DeepDx®. To simplify integration, a HALO AP® analysis software development kit (SDK) including sample code is available to all algorithm developers. One of the key advantages of HALO AP® is the ability to deliver AI algorithms in an automated, stepwise workflow that can be locked, secured, and audited to prevent tampering or misuse.

DeepDx® Prostate analysis can be triggered directly in HALO AP® by selecting the DeepDx® workflow or run automatically via the HALO AP® API. Analysis progress, all results, and visual markup images can be reviewed in HALO AP®, removing the need to shift between systems.

Steven Hashagen, CEO at Indica Labs commented, “As digital pathology continues to enable AI-based workflows, we’ve recognized that to increase efficiency, case management systems like HALO AP® must support full integration of algorithms without sacrificing usability. The integration between DeepDx® and HALO AP® demonstrates how any algorithm vendor can leverage HALO AP® to deliver clinically relevant results directly within the pathologists’ viewing software, eliminating the need for an AI-specific viewer.”

Sun Woo Kim, CEO at Deep Bio commented, “Deep Bio’s partnership with Indica Labs is a step closer to our vision and goal of providing diagnostic support tools for pathologists and oncologists, for timely and accurate diagnosis and prognosis, leading to better treatment decision-making. We believe DeepDx® Prostate is a powerful addition to the robust clinical workflow afforded by HALO AP.”
