Digital pathology in life sciences

Biomarker and drug discovery are key in the development of new anticancer therapies. An increased urgency for clinical development has emerged, driven by growing cancer projections and low success rates in the lengthy and costly drug development pipeline. With a complete end-to-end solution in digital pathology offering high flexibility in image analysis and multi-site research, Philips aims to accelerate drug development throughout all phases of the pharmaceutic pipeline. 

Supporting all stages of drug development

Our product portfolio supports biomarker and target discovery, tumor detection, effective tissue data management and analysis, multisite collaboration and shared workflows. By permitting data integration of dispersed pharma pathology labs around the world, we provide a solid basis for efficient and precise tissue and biomarker evaluation, as well as clinical trials in cancer research.
