GLP-Validated Peer Review: The Next Step in Digital Pathology

About the Virtual Seminar

Advances in computing power, whole slide scanners, and digital-based machine learning are helping pathologists “go digital” and optimize their workflow across teams and geographies. How does this approach apply for studies in need of a digital pathology peer review that is GLP-validated?


During this virtual event, we will join industry experts from Roche to describe a GLP-validated digital pathology workflow used for a candidate drug prior to human clinical testing. The technical controls needed to enable this validation were made possible by Deciphex, a leader in preclinical digital pathology software.

Following the presentation, key team members will participate in a live question and answer session with the audience about the qualification strategy for validating the system, focusing on the challenges and successes of the partnership that occurred along the way.
