For more than 30 years, Hologic has developed and brought to market new advances in cervical cancer screening, including the first liquid-based cytology technology, the ThinPrep® Pap Test, and the first FDA-approved mRNA-based HPV test, the Aptima® HPV Assay. Hologic is redefining cervical cancer screening yet again by introducing Genius Digital Diagnostics for laboratories. The system can rapidly analyze all cells on a ThinPrep Pap test slide, narrowing tens of thousands of cells down to a gallery view of the most diagnostically relevant images. This will help provide healthcare providers with the critical information they need to guide earlier detection and better treatment decisions for the patients they serve.

“Application of AI requires digital images that are of exceptional quality,” said Kevin Thornal, president, Diagnostic Solutions Division at Hologic. “Our teams developed a breakthrough imaging technology that converts physical glass cytology slides into digital images with superior clarity. From this digitalization, advanced image analysis and improved standardization are now achievable.”

Genius Digital Diagnostics enables a more seamless and dynamic collaboration across laboratories within a network, connecting pathologists with remote review so each patient can benefit from the collective knowledge of geographically dispersed experts when needed. Digital case review promises to enhance the experience for lab partners by improving workflow and accelerating review time.

“As a part of our development process, we collaborated with cytotechnologists and pathologists to ensure we were developing a new system to meet their needs,” said Michael Quick, vice president, R&D and Innovation at Hologic. “We’re always innovating so we can help our lab partners detect more diseases and save more lives every day.”

Hologic now offers the first CE-marked comprehensive cervical cancer screening portfolio from sample collection to digital diagnosis. Genius Digital Diagnostics consists of a digital imager for image acquisition, an AI algorithm for analyzing images, an image management server for storing images, and a review station for case review. The complete system is scalable, designed to fit the present and future needs of laboratories.

Disruptive Tech Asean Comments That Semiconductor Industry in China Eyes on a New Beyond the Manufacturing Of 7nm Chips3.12.2020 13:00:00 EETPress release

Disruptive Tech Asean learnt from Li Ke from China Semiconductor Industry Association (CSIA) that an integrated circuit industry is vital for developing modern industries, and China is therefore imperative to localize chip industry supply chain and develop homegrown-core chips. Li Ke believes that China will have the ability to fully mass-produce its own 28nm chips in one or two years, as well as having a completely domestic industry chain and independent chip manufacturing capabilities. According to Gartner’s forecast at the end of 2019, the global semiconductor market would grow by 12.5% in 2020. Yet, with devastating impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, the forecast was revised to a decline of 0.9%. According to Andrew Norwood, Research Vice President at Gartner, “COVID-19 has distorted supply chain and manufacturing operations across the world and will lead to a drastic drop in consumer and enterprise spending across most areas with a few exceptions.” The US-China trade war has also c

Measuring What Matters: A New Approach to Assessing Sovereign Climate Risk3.12.2020 11:23:00 EETPress release

Moody’s affiliate Four Twenty Seven today released a report analyzing the future exposure of the global population, the economy, and agriculture to a range of climate hazards, exploring both global trends and findings by country. Leveraging new analytics developed by Four Twenty Seven, the report assesses exposure to floods, heat stress, hurricanes and typhoons, rising sea levels, wildfires, and water stress and is based on the only known global dataset matching physical climate risk exposure to population location, GDP Purchasing Power Parity (PPP), and agricultural areas within countries. “This novel dataset provides a detailed view of the exposure of key human and economic assets around the world. Understanding exposure is critical for investors and credit institutions to price climate risk, but also to help direct finance flows towards adaptation and resilience where they’re most needed,” says Emilie Mazzacurati, Global Head of Moody’s Climate Solutions in Moody’s ESG Solutions Gro
