■ Why PidPort?

Globally, there is a severe shortage of pathologists; doctors who specialize in visually analyzing samples from the tissues of a patient under a microscope to diagnose diseases and cancers. The turnaround time to obtain diagnostic results can take weeks, which causes tremendous mental stress to the patients and allows time for illnesses to worsen. With our AI-driven product, PidPort, pathologists can now obtain a pathologic diagnosis in approximately 30 seconds with a 98% diagnostic accuracy.

Currently, we are expanding our organization and operations to prepare for the official launch of our product. In the future, we envision PidPort to become the leader in the pathology space for both developed and developing countries.
