Transforming Cancer Diagnostics to Improve Patient Care.
An idea was born
Two Utah-based private practice pathologists seeking to build a digital practice, purchase a whole slide imaging system, and recognize the necessity to standardize pre-diagnostic workflow.
Lumea is founded
LUMEA is founded to develop standardized workflows for digital pathology, building a platform to link clinic, lab and pathologist in one system. They named it BxLink.
Established EU R&D Facility
Partnered with Themis Pathology (Bucharest, Romania) to establish a Histochemistry R&D facility for multi-plexed and improved tissue embedding.
Established an integrated digital histology lab in a Provo warehouse, to implement and validate nascent technologies, including the BxChip.
AI Powered Workflow Commercialized
Incorporated artificial intelligence into the digital imaging of gross tissue biopsy specimens, and commercialized the first AI-powered pathology workflow.
Buildout of State-of-the Art HQ
LUMEA digital prostate core mapping is developed and deployed as part of a major multi center FDA validation trial.
R&D initiatives in Gastroenterology, Dermatology
LUMEA launches R&D initiatives in Gastroenterology, Dermatology pre-analytics.
LUMEA technologies are adopted in multiple academic centers.
LUMEA technologies adopted in a national commercial laboratory.
LUMEA launches R&D initiative for low-cellularity / high value specimens and name it the CytoPod.
Independent clinical trials validate superior tissue handling and cost effectiveness of LUMEA lab workflow and tissue handling technologies.
Award of 3 Major Patents
LUMEA spins off its clinical lab into a separate diagnostic services company (PathNet Labs).
LUMEA is awarded 3 major patents relating to tissue handling, point-of-care imaging and the use of artificial intelligence in histology workflow.
