U.S. reference laboratory ARUP Laboratories and artificial intelligence (AI) developer Techcyte announced they have co-developed an AI-augmented tool for improved detection of parasites and ova.

The tool was designed to advance diagnostic capabilities at the parasitology lab of ARUP, a nonprofit arm of the University of Utah, and will allow for quicker turnaround times, lower costs, and improved patient care. The companies also said the new technology will mean less eye fatigue and neuromuscular tension for lab workers. Because the tool quickly screens out negative results, workers spend less time looking through microscopes and more time analyzing results, according to ARUP and Techcyte.

Development of the AI tool for ova and parasite testing is part of a larger collaboration between ARUP and Techcyte on digital technologies for laboratories.
