Owkin Diagnostics Orb

Our diagnostics approach

A fuller picture of
a patient’s disease

We build impactful digital pathology diagnostics


What if we could help pathologists and oncologists deliver precision medicine to their patients?

Challenge 1

Treatment burden

Treatments for cancer can be toxic, invasive, expensive and may not always be necessary or effective.
Challenge 2
Disease heterogeneity
Cancer is a highly heterogeneous disease. Even cancer of one tissue can have many subtypes. Each subtype may respond to treatments differently.
Challenge 3
Anatomic pathology is underutilized
Digital pathology slides hold vast amounts of hidden insights and unlike genomic data, they are routinely generated in the clinical workflow.
How can Owkin's models help enhance pathologists’ work, predict molecular phenotypes and signatures, and predict patient outcomes? [02:49]


Is AI the key to unlocking digital pathology’s potential?

With the advancements of machine learning, the abundance of information contained in pathology slides can be leveraged like never before.

AI solutions can support pathologists in daily tasks, prescreen for predictive biomarkers, and provide insight into patient outcomes to support treatment decision making.

Precision medicine

Not all AI tools are alike

AI-based solutions will make precision medicine more effective and accessible.

Owkin’s solution

Prescreen for biomarkers and assess patient outcomes

Owkin delivers AI diagnostics that integrate seamlessly into the digital pathology workflows to support accurate and timely diagnosis.

Giving healthcare providers a fuller picture of a patient’s disease means more patients can benefit from targeted therapies, making precision medicine more accessible to more patients at an earlier stage of their disease.

Research use only

Tertiary Lymphoid Structures

We also have a pre-screening tool that uses AI to detect the presence or absence of TLS across tumor types directly from H&E slides for a research setting.

TLS presence is considered a novel biomarker to stratify the overall survival risk of untreated cancer patients and as a marker of efficient immunotherapies.  A simple and standardized approach to measure TLS could support the adoption of this biomarker as an independent predictor of response to immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICI).

Companion diagnostics

We develop digital pathology based companion diagnostics, either in house or through partnership with biopharma, to support the clinical development and market access of novel therapies.
Pre-screening for known biomarkers

Identify subgroups of patients that benefit from targeted therapies.

Novel biomarkers & outcome prediction

Match new therapies to patients and/or better characterise patients’ risk.
