We build products for automated analysis of medical images and data, to aid diagnosis.

Shonit™ is a complete peripheral blood smear analyser solution which automates the routine tasks like differential counts. Additionally, it provides a screening solution for various parasitic infections like Malaria and disorders like Anaemia. It starts by capturing images of blood smear slides with a phone fitted on a microscope. The images are analysed on cloud using state of the art image processing and deep learning techniques. Finally it generates reports containing differential blood counts, visualisations on various blood metrics and suggestions about any abnormalities. The report can then be reviewed by pathologists on any net connected device, from anywhere in the world, making this product useful for areas having dearth of specialists.

Under Clinical Validation

Semen analysis is one of the core aspects in infertility investigations for measurement of male fecundity in clinical Andrology. Our capability, Aadi, uses state-of-the-art Artificial Intelligence techniques to estimate pivotal parameters of ejaculated human spermatozoa like progressive motility, concentration and morphological characteristics. These parameters aid Andrologists to correlate with clinical findings and help them to predict the ability of the spermatozoa to fertilise the oocyte.

Nearing Clinical Validation

The antinuclear antibody (ANA) test is used as a primary test to help evaluate a person for autoimmune disorders that affect many tissues and organs throughout the body. A positive ANA test result means that autoantibodies are present. In a person with signs and symptoms, this suggests the presence of an autoimmune disease, but further evaluation is required to assist in making a final diagnosis. We are trying to come up with an automated intelligent solution for the Indirect fluorescent antibody (IFA) test to aid the screening process.

Under Research

After Serum Chemistry and Blood, Urine Analysis is the most common Pathology test. Our Urinalysis solution detects substances (like crystals and casts), cellular material (like epithelial cells, RBCs and WBCs), and also calculates related volumetric parameters. The presence of these bodies in urine are indicative of a host of metabolic and kidney disorders.

Under Development

The chest X-ray is the most common diagnostic scan performed. It reveals image of the heart, lungs, blood vessels, ribs, etc. We are building a screening solution for chest X-rays, which separate the normal cases from those having abnormalities. It points out the abnormalities (fractured ribs, lung infections, etc.) when present. Works on digital X-ray images from any standard X-ray machine.

Under Development

Diabetic Retinopathy is one of the leading cause of blindness for people above 30 years of age. It could also lead to prolonged bleeding in eyes, due to delayed healing process in diabetic patients. Grading Diabetic Retinopathy requires identification of very minute features in the eye such as microaneurysms as well as large features such as exudates, and their position relative to each other. Our solution uses Artificial Intelligence techniques to identify features in retinal scan, aiding Ophthalmologists detect, classify and grade Diabetic Retinopathy with ease.

Manthana - A Medical Intelligence Platform  

Audaciously high skyscrapers require deeper and surer foundations. Manthana, our indigenous medical intelligence platform, comprising of a data and machine learning backend Kūrma, along with a real-time reporting and API platform Mandāra provide the thrust to our endevours. This is why we can take on, and deliver on, so much more than everyone thinks we can.

Continuous Intelligence Upgrades  

Better. Best. Better than the best! We follow a rigorous continuous learning process to keep improving the performance of all our AI models. We don't stop at the best, we make the best better. And what's more, because of our cloud based Intelligence-As-A-Service paradigm, all our partners get to experience the awesomeness instantaneously!

Embedded & Hardware  

Inexpensive telemedicine enablers. When required, our products offer an inexpensive digitisation option for medical data. Whether it's attaching a smartphone on a microscope to capture images and videos, or automating slide scanning under it, we do not shy away from getting our hands dirty. While our embedded and hardware efforts are geared towards building the best possible data capture gizmos to feed our medical intelligence platform, if they also help fill gaps in the telemedicine story for our partners, we're happy to help.

  • This AI pathologist could be a life-saver for India’s ailing diagnostics sector

    Factor Daily, January 12, 2017 : A solution like Shonit promises much-needed change. It can dramatically improve speed, accuracy and consistency of blood diagnostics (semen and urine diagnostics are coming soon). Labs can service more patients and human errors can be significantly reduced. But, more importantly, pathologists can access data remotely and sign off on reports — a massive step to bringing diagnostic access to remote parts of the country.Easier said than done, though.
