Rewire Neuro and Neurescence are partnering to enhance fluorescence calcium imaging of the nervous system with cutting edge neuronal segmentation and analysis capability.
Neurescence Inc. (Toronto, Canada), the manufacturer of MultiscopesTM, and Rewire Neuro, Inc. (Portland, Oregon), a provider of artificial intelligence software development services (“AI-a-a-S”) announced their strategic development partnership today. With the aim to optimize the automated analysis workflow for neuroscientists, this technology integration utilizes deep learning to rapidly improve detection and quantification of neuronal activity while reducing the processing time of data-dense brain recordings. Videos that would previously take 2 weeks to be processed now result in neuronal detection in 30 minutes with double the accuracy compared to the existing automated neuronal segmentation methods in the market.
Dr. Yasaman Soudagar, CEO of Neurescence, said: “Our current software offers a seamless manual method to contour neurons and accurately extract neuronal traces. Our partnership with Rewire Neuro is truly impactful because it enables us to add a refined automated workflow to our capabilities. It will allow scientists to extract accurate neuronal activity traces from 1000s of neurons and readily analyze them for a wide range of neuroscience experiments.”
Dr. John Harkness, CEO of Rewire Neuro, commented: “I am thrilled to work with Neurescence to add rapid and accurate automated detection of neurons in calcium imaging brain movies to the upcoming Neurescence novel data analysis platform by implementing Rewire’s cutting edge machine learning and computational image processing system. We have the ability to transform a two-week processing requirement into a matter of minutes, with a high degree of signal detection accuracy, which enables users to move forward with analysis faster and with more accurate data.”
