The deal connects the histopathology image analysis expertise of OracleBio and the tissue staining capabilities of Ultivue, with the goal of providing pharmaceutical companies with an end-to-end workflow for gaining valuable insights from biomarkers in situ.
OracleBio, a contract research organization based in Scotland, is known for its quantitative digital pathology services, delivering high-quality image analysis while leveraging multiple software platforms in supporting clinical and pre-clinical research.
“OracleBio aim to deliver robust quantitative histopathology data deployed within a quality framework, and that analysis can be heavily dependent on the quality of sample preparation and staining,” says Lorcan Sherry, CSO of OracleBio. “Being able to partner with Ultivue means we can be confident in the staining of the tissue we’re quantifying, which ultimately means more precise data.”
The Cambridge, Massachusetts-based Ultivue develops reagents for staining tissues used for multiplex immunofluorescence imaging and analysis. Its proprietary InSituPlex technology is designed for fast and comprehensive exploration of biologically-relevant markers in tissue samples.
“We’ve developed reagents that are workflow-agnostic and can plug-and-play in most customers’ existing laboratory infrastructure, so it makes sense to partner with a like-minded imaging and analysis CRO like you have in OracleBio. At the end of the day, our goal is always to offer our customers relevant and meaningful biological insights from their samples, regardless of their preferred hardware or software,” says Jacques Corriveau, President and CEO of Ultivue.
OracleBio is a leading contract research organization (CRO) specializing in quantitative digital pathology, providing histopathology image analysis services to support pre-clinical and clinical R&D.
Using both Indica Labs HALO™ and Visiopharm image analysis software platforms, they can deliver accurate and detailed quantification of nuclear, membrane and cytoplasmic markers on a cell-by-cell basis within histology, IHC and ISH tissue sections.
Ultivue provides researchers and scientists with multiplex biomarker assays for tissue phenotyping and digital pathology. Its proprietary InSituPlex technology enables advanced exploration and interrogation of tissue samples for precision medicine research. These highly customizable solutions and scientific consultative approach strengthen and accelerate biomarker discovery and drug development programs.

BourseInside, The New Media Platform That Finds Attractive Investments for Curious Investors22.6.2021 18:08:00 EEST | Press release
On the stock market, small caps continue to outperform. Since 1926, they have posted a performance of 12.1% per year, in contrast to 9.7% for large caps. And yet these so-called "small stocks" have been largely ignored by the stock market. They are rarely covered by analysts, shunned by the mainstream stock-market press and neglected by funds. Nevertheless, they are of great interest to investors, in particular those who have recently taken to investing in the stock market in order to grow their savings (16% increase in investors in 2020). For half of these newcomers, investing in the stock market gives them the opportunity to support the French economy by supporting the growth of our future champions and to channel their savings into a more sustainable and fairer model. In order to further strengthen this link between the French people and the development of our national companies, we decided to create BourseInside, the first web/TV/newsletter media platform, fully dedicated to listed
