Tissue Analyzer 3Scan Builds Out Machine Learning With M Series B

July 11th, 2016 Xconomy San Francisco —  3Scan, a San Francisco company that uses knife-shaped diamonds to cut, scan, and analyze biological tissue, has raised a $14 million round of funding from Lux Capital and Data Collective. The company plans to use the cash for expanding its existing imaging systems and software, as well as pushing forward its ability to help with pre-clinical trials for drug discovery. And 3Scan said it may be able to do that using machine-learning technology. 3Scan builds a device from scratch that can deconstruct any kind of biological soft tissue into microscopically thin, almost transparent slices. At the same time, the machine scans and analyzes those samples like a microscope. The device, called a knife edge scanning microscope, creates three-dimensional imagery from the large datasets…
