Historam, Histopathology via Raman Imaging, allows the quantification of biochemical metabolites on fresh-frozen surgical biopsies. It provides a reliable and rapid analysis to support pathologists and surgeons in their daily practice, for the patient benefit.
Dr. Samy Andrea Strola has recently developed, in collaboration with CEA-LETI Grenoble, Albert Bonniot Institute (Inserm UGA U1209) and University Hospital Centre of Grenoble, an innovative, user-friendly and compact imaging device (patent filed) that allows a rapid quantitative analysis (30 min maximum) directly from a fresh/frozen surgical biopsy. The system is based on the Raman Spectroscopy principle and provides the digital staining of the biopsy sample via the quantification of a panel of specific biochemical metabolites involved in the oncogenesis process. We called this device HISTORAM, short for Histopathology via Raman Imaging.
