Intelligent microscopy
from sample to result

Minimic is an automated, intelligent, and trainable microscope. Integrated deep learning image processing guarantees a seamless workflow from sample to the analysis result. Minimic saves time and resources in routine imaging tasks and lets you focus on the exciting questions.

Minimic brings deep learning to your workbench.

You can choose between our expert-trained neural networks or even train your own. Thereby, minimic learns to support you with your specific microscopic counting problem.

Typical fields of application for the minimic are life science research, human and veterinarian medicine. It excels at counting tasks in the diagnosis of infectious diseases, cell culture or reporter assay analysis.

Malaria diagnosis

Scientists and medical staff around the world, in hospitals, medical laboratories and research labs together spend about 100 000 hours per day[1] at the microscope, counting blood cells and identifying those that are invaded by the malaria parasite. [1] WHO Malaria Report 2016

Why shouldn’t we teach a microscope to do it all by itself?

In cooperation with Heidelberg University Hospital, we trained the minimic to recognize infected and healthy red blood cells in Gimsa-stained thin films. Minimic now helps to excel malaria research in Heidelberg.
