SamanTree Medical is a clinical stage high-tech Swiss start-up founded in 2014 that has developed the Histolog Scanner, an AI-based platform for the visualization of the whole surface of a fresh resection.
The technology provides full margin control of a freshly excised specimen with subcellular resolution within 2 minutes and with standard of care quality and histology-grade confidence.
This novel imaging modality will support the surgeon during cancer surgery to decide if a further excision is needed, achieving the common goal of improving patient quality of life by decreasing rates of reoperations due to positive margin.
This approach carries large promises in breast conserving surgery, but other applications are potentially relevant as also pathology lab use of the technology.
The product is CE marked.
