"The collaboration with Definiens will enable Cernostics to accelerate development of its pipeline of systems biology-based diagnostic, prognostic and predictive tests. Cernostics is in a unique position to provide unsurpassed solutions for tissue analysis and cancer diagnosis and the well validated Definiens software is a key component for extracting precise image measurements," said Michael Hoerres, CEO of Cernostics.

To support its development of oncology diagnostic technology, Cernostics is working closely with Geisinger Health System, a $2.3 billion integrated health services organization based in Pennsylvania. Supported by Geisinger, Cernostics gains access to a clinical setting on which to create and validate pathology solutions, including a large tumor bank linked to well-annotated, deep and longitudinal clinical information.
