Press Release: NeoGenomics Integrates HALO® From Indica Labs
Ft. Myers, Florida – April 3, 2020 – NeoGenomics, Inc. (NASDAQ: NEO), a leading provider of cancer-focused testing services, today announced that it has integrated Indica Labs enterprise-level HALO AP™ image analysis platform for Image Analysis, Immunohistochemistry (IHC) and Multiplexing across its Clinical Services and Pharma Services businesses. The platform’s robust workflow modules streamlines analysis algorithms and provides rapid, quantitative results for a multitude of tissue types.
NeoGenomics is delivering in a significant number of clinical and pharmaceutical sponsor-driven studies, and requests for our image analysis testing continues to increase,” said Douglas M. VanOort, NeoGenomics’ Chairman and CEO. “This technology will enable us to deliver our growing client requests with high-quality data in an efficient and timely manner.
Given the company’s greater throughput demands and IT infrastructure, NeoGenomics is able to utilize the advantage of HALO’s parallel processing technology, which significantly increases the rate of analysis compared to prior approaches. NeoGenomics integrated the use of HALO algorithms in a study deploying a novel two panel multiplexing approach, where T cell exhaustion was profiled and quantitated with the tumor and stroma of the tumor microenvironment of HNSCC samples, where only a limited number of studies have been published to date that characterize the location, expression and co-expression of TIGIT, LAG-3 and PD-1 in the HNSCC microenvironment.
“We are pleased to continue expanding our partnership with NeoGenomics, a global leader in pharmaceutical research services and oncology testing,” remarked Steven Hashagen, CEO, Indica Labs. “By implementing this enterprise-scale HALO deployment, NeoGenomics maintains its leadership at the forefront of computational pathology and is equipped to deliver the rich scientific data that their pathology and pharmaceutical clients demand.”
