What they're saying"Applikate has developed a unique approach to pathology that accelerates diagnosis, eliminates costs, and negates the need for wax embedding and toxic agents. I believe the company will disrupt the field of histology."
Legacy hardware perpetuates the past. The slow preparation of slides creates delayed results, lengthens patient anxiety, and interrupts treatment. Patient satisfaction is directly impacted.
Stored tissue is expensive to retrieve. This antiquated process results in broken and lost slides, archival and retrieval costs, tissue re-cuts, and more delays for returning patients.
Artifacts & Slow Processing
Compared to physical slides, our platform produces zero artifacts, generates significantly faster results, and supports multilevel viewing.
10% Histotechnology Vacancy Rate
There are tens of millions of biopsies ordered each year, and not enough histotechnologists to process them.
The vacancy rate for histotechnologists, trained medical professionals tasked with processing tissue samples for microscopic examination and eventual diagnosis, is approaching 10% due to an aging workforce and fewer histology programs to train new entrants.
Revolutionizing pathology. Reducing medical errors. Lowering cost.
Until Applikate's fully automated tissue processing and digital imaging platform, traditional pathology remained unchanged for a century. Even modern digital slide scanners add labor and equipment costs, create more steps, and permanently capture imperfections in the slide ("artifacts").
All of these layered processes, costs, imperfections, lengthy turnaround times, and physical limitations are resolved with Applikate's patented pathology platform.

Some Of Our Advisors
Consulting physicians, dispersed across a health network, collaborating in real time.
Physical slides may result in poor quality images which impede diagnostics and result in time-consuming and inaccurate results when deriving cell-type counts. Slides complicate the ability of medical specialists to collectively review the patient’s condition and collaboratively determine the best treatment plan.
The time and cost of producing physical slides constrains the number of slides per patient that a pathologist reviews, limiting the diagnostic information at their disposal.
Tissue processing steps are done by a diminishing number of expensive histotechnologists. In reducing manual steps, their workload eases as their yield improves. With the Applikate platform, pathology departments produce more and save more.
