Many Hands Make "Light" Work
Applikate was founded by pioneers in transforming histology
As leaders in pathology, biomedical engineering, optics, and applied physics, Applikate’s founders designed, built, tested, and are now delivering a patented histology platform that is as elegant as it is revolutionary.
We follow best practices in business management, which includes extensive planning, operational execution, and clear accountability.
Applikate Technologies is a hardware and software company that has developed the first automated histology platform with integrated digital imaging. Our patented technology stains and images whole samples without the need for physical slicing. The platform automates the pathology workflow, cuts processing time, lowers labor and materials costs, improves image quality, and reduces the risk of misdiagnosis.
Since 2013, Applikate has been revolutionizing pathology, reducing medical errors, and lowering cost.
