Augmented Microscopy Platform

Share this on social media:


Jenoptik Optical Systems has announced the development of an innovative technology to bring artificial intelligence (AI) to conventional microscopy, through the overlay of digital content directly into a commercial-off-the-shelf microscope’s field of view. The technology was developed in collaboration with Google researchers.

Using the platform Google has demonstrated modelling for tumour detection in histopathology slides for both prostate cancer and lymph nodes from breast cancer. The results were presented at the Annual meeting for the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) in April.

Jenoptik designed and integrated the opto-mechanical technology of the augmented microscope solution, which was made possible by leveraging its systems engineering experience, optical R&D capabilities, and its portfolio of IP across a breadth of innovative applications and industries.
