Owkin Virtual Staining
We are developing a technology platform to enable every pathologist and translational researcher to use immunohistochemical & immunofluorescence stainings.
Generate immunostained slides with machine learning
Owkin Virtual Staining allows you to automatically compute a virtual immunostained slide from a digitized H&E stained specimen slide.
Owkin has developed a deep learning data enrichment model that can produce virtual immunostains from existing H&E whole slide images.
It leverages state-of-the-art generative adversarial networks that learn from double or multiplex stained histopathology slides. It enables the model to generate, in a click, immunostaining for any H&E slide, bypassing wet lab work.GET IN TOUCH
Virtual staining in action in Owkin Studio
The virtual staining technology is integrated in Owkin Studio, our machine learning platform for researchers.
Here, we demonstrate the creation of a virtual CD3 stained slide from an original digitized H&E slide. CD3 marker allows identification & quantification of T-cells, and analysis of immune infiltration of the tumor microenvironment. The CD3 stain has high prognostic value, as T-cell activation is linked to overall immune response.
