The pharmaceutical industry is at an exciting time when it comes to digital pathology and image analysis. One of the recent advancements in image analysis is Chemical Imaging (CI). It brings together conventional imaging and spectroscopy to gain both spatial and spectral information necessary in the characterization of biomolecules. In the light of these discoveries and the current trend of digitalization, it seems that every part of the drug development and manufacturing process is moving toward automation, improving processing speeds and information accuracy.
Moreover, as pharmaceutical companies are freeing up their pathologists’ and pharmacists’ time to focus on finding new treatments for the COVID-19 pandemic, many of the mundane tasks like image visualization are now being automated. And, with the advancement of computer vision and artificial intelligence, the domain of image analysis is witnessing an influx of diversified opportunities. AI applications for image analysis use deep learning algorithms and analytics to systematically assess images for tumors or suspicious lesions and to provide detailed reports on their findings instantly.
Additionally, pathology laboratories are now using these digitally-enabled image analysis tools for in-vitro diagnostics. This is a huge step forward and a step that will benefit not only laboratories and patients but also the pharmaceutical and diagnostic industry as it will enable more widespread use of quantitative measures that have been limited to high-end discovery and research facilities.
At this juncture, there is a wide variety of image analysis solutions providers entering the industry with a set of advanced and insightful offerings.
