NantWorks and UCLA Researchers Develop Method to Achieve High Accuracy Classification of …

LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) Department of Electrical Engineering in collaboration with scientists from NantWorks, LLC today announced they have developed a new cell diagnostics method that has the potential to open up a new path to data-driven cancer diagnostics and drug development. Blood tests typically label cells with biochemicals in order to identify them, however these biochemicals (which recognize biomarkers) can cause adverse changes in cells and compromise subsequent analysis. Currently used label-free cell identification techniques, which primarily rely on a single feature of the cell, have limited accuracy. The new system, on the other hand, integrates deep learning with a novel microscope. The microscope, enabled by the photonic time stretch technique to achieve record high accuracy in label-free cell classification, captures fast…
