Lessons Learned in Launching a Prognostic Test Based On Tissue Image Analysis, New and Upcoming Webinar Hosted by Xtalks

Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) December 02, 2013

Accuracy, reproducibility and predictive power are the main challenges of many diagnostic and prognostic tests. These factors are especially important for tests that involve complex sample preparation procedures and manual interpretation. Tests that fall into this category are those based on tissue, such as Her-2.

In this webinar, you will learn how Metamark Genetics developed a new prognostic test using image analysis for early stage prostate cancer based on tissue samples: ProMark. ProMark is a Multiplex Immunofluorescence application which automatically classifies tumor, and quantifies biomarker expression within each Prostate Tumor gland. Learn from Dr. Thomas Nifong, Senior Vice President of Clinical Operations at Metamark Genetics, how the challenges of accuracy and reproducibility can be overcome through workflow automation and image analysis, resulting in prognostic tests of high predictive power.
