The diagnostics solution delivered by our team interprets files generated by PCR tools to provide lab staff with test results. Initially, the solution was used to detect the coronavirus infection in plates from PCR equipment, but then it was decided not to limit the system to COVID-19. We added new kinds of testing – namely, Fungi and Streptococcus tests. The main purpose of the testing system is to speed up and simplify the process of analyzing the results. Before, lab operators would analyze each test result from PCR devices manually to make a decision. It used to take them a lot of time (ranging from 20 minutes to 1 hour) and manual work to cope with those tasks. Now, the system is capable of simplifying the work of lab operators and saving them a considerable amount of time – with our solution, analyzing a plate and making a decision take less than a minute.

The contribution made by our business analyst was crucial for the eventual success of this IT project. Among other things, we succeeded at:
AI-powered intelligent platform to augment doctor’s verification of COVID-19 test results. The system simplifies the work of lab operators who deal with qPCR analyses. The system parses raw results from laboratory PCR machines that are installed in labs and displays them on a dashboard. The possibility to process and display information from different machines (different models or even producers of qPCR analyzers) is a crucial advantage of our system.
AI-powered intelligent platform to augment and speed up verification of qPCR test results (COVID-19 and others). The system can upload raw results from various laboratory PCR machines (the number of models and brands constantly increasing), process them with artificial intelligence, displays results on the dashboard and/or generate reports. Thus the whole testing process is fully automated. A lab operator only needs to review the results and approve them. If the clinician is not confident about the particular test they can review it and change the result manually.
Also, the system helps to track repeating samples (those being previously assessed less than 72 hours ago) and helps the operator to track the status of each sample. With this platform, the velocity of testing is increased dramatically with no loss in preciseness, and costs are substantially reduced.
The resulting solution fully matches the challenging requirements voiced by the customer. In the situation of the lasting COVID-19 health crisis, the customer now can use an advanced AI-powered tool utilizing the potential of ML to the maximum extent possible. As a result, qPCR test results are handled and verified at a much greater speed. On top of that, the customer now is in the right position to save significant resources, both financial and work time-related. Thus, more resources can be allocated to solving other pressing issues, patients' situations are clarified faster, while data on the virus-related trends and changes is safely stored, easily accessible, and instantly available.
As a result of our involvement, the following deliverables were developed:
