Definiens Expands Large Data Analytics Functionality to Accelerate Image-based R&D

Definiens Expands Large Data Analytics Functionality to Accelerate Image-based Research and Development

New Definiens Image Miner™ 2 tightly integrates data mining with image analysis to streamline the knowledge-generation process

Munich, Germany, June 21, 2012 / B3C newswire / - Definiens®, the leading provider of image analysis and data mining solutions for quantitative digital pathology, today announced the release of Definiens Image Miner™ 2. The new product provides researchers in the life sciences with deeper insights into underlying biology by integrating image with data analysis. Image Miner 2 makes the wealth of information in biomedical images accessible, accelerating life sciences research and allowing for successful biomarker development.

By supporting highly effective data exploration and study results, the duration of image-based studies can be reduced from weeks to days. Definiens Image Miner 2 provides researchers with the unique ability to easily switch between investigating trends and patterns in large data sets and drawing attention to subtle analysis details in single images. Using the statistic toolbox and the comprehensive visualization options, insights and new knowledge can be generated from images in an unprecedented way. In combination with Definiens image analysis solutions, Image Miner facilitates the processing of even very large data sets.

“For the first time in this industry workflows are available that allow researchers to unlock the information and knowledge residing in images in a highly productive manner.” says Thomas Heydler, CEO of Definiens. “Biomedical images are a vast, often untapped source of information and represent big data at the same time. Up to this point they often have not been available for detailed analysis. By turning images into computational information, Definiens supports researchers in their endeavors to efficiently develop novel biomarkers, drugs and diagnostics.”

With seamless links between readouts and underlying images, related target structures are only a mouse-click away from relevant data points. Image Miner 2 supports predictive modeling by correlating image analysis results with data from other sources, such as patient outcome data in the development of predictive biomarkers. Interactive plots and data tables provide real-time feedback on study trends, while quality control and assay validation are facilitated by instant identification of outliers and artifacts.

For more information on Definiens Image Miner 2, sign up for the introductory launch webinar, and find examples illustrating how Definiens Image Miner 2 supports tissue-based biomarker development or high content screening, respectively.
