Instapath

Instapath
Every year, 5 million biopsy procedures are performed to diagnose cancer in the United States. Of those 5 million patients, 1 million need repeat procedures due to inadequate biopsy quality. Repeat procedures can delay life-saving treatments for over 2 months. To address this problem, Instapath has developed a microscopy system for rapid point-of-procedure biopsy evaluation. Instapath ensures the quality of biopsies by providing an exact picture of a whole biopsy at subcellular resolution within seconds of removal. By reducing biopsy procedure time, Instapath also doubles throughput for the hospitals.
