Our bacteriology algorithm software reduces the time, effort and cost it takes to perform direct microscopic exams by using AI to analyze cells from digital images of cytological smears that have been uploaded to the Techcyte platform.
Bacteriology Gram Analysis
Our software locates, counts and classifies cells from a digital image of a cytological smear from a glass slide that has been uploaded to the Techcyte platform.
The Techcyte bacteriology algorithm may be used to identify various bacteria, cells and yeasts from samples of vaginal origin. Currently, this is intended for in-vitro diagnostic use only.
Our platform is a distributed system using our Techcyte cloud, algorithms, genetic slide scanners, and Techcyte or third-party viewing software.
The Bacteriology Algorithm is CE marked in the EU. It is for research use only and not for diagnostic use within the US. The performance has not been validated within the US.
Challenge & Solution
Direct microscopic exams have several disadvantages, including technician fatigue, distraction, operator bias, difficult working conditions, and the cost and time it takes to perform the analyses via microscope.
With our bacteriology solution, labs can dramatically reduce the time and effort it takes to perform direct examination reads while obtaining greater inter- and intra-operator consistency and accuracy.
How it works
- The slide is prepared with a standard smear, then treated with a gram stain.
- Slides are scanned in 1.5 minutes at 80x magnification
- Our AI analyzes the slide in minutes, locating and identifying all objects of interest.
- Results are presented to the lab tech for final review. This saves lab techs time, increases consistency and provides better working conditions.
Your lab can define workflows that suit your organization’s particular needs. We also offer full reporting of both data and images through an easy-to-use API, which allows your laboratory information system (LIS) to seamlessly communicate with our software.
You’ll also have access to our customizable report template.
The software is validated in the EU to find these organisms:
- Gram positive bacilli
- Gram negative bacilli
- Gram positive cocci
- Gram negative cocci
- Gardnerella vaginalis
- Epithelial cells
- Clue cells
- Brush cells
- Yeast, Filamentous mycelium
