IMAGE-IN | Findaureus: An open-source application for locating Staphylococcus aureus in fluorescence-labeled infected bone tissue slices

In the context of the IMAGE-IN project, BMD contributed to the development of a new open source tool for locating Staphylococcus aureus in fluorescence-labelled infected bone tissue slices. Findaureus was developed by a multidisciplinary team, Findaureus is tailored to efficiently pinpoint Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) in fluorescence-labelled tissue samples, particularly in bone infections.

Findaureus’s advanced algorithms enable precise identification of S. aureus within multispectral images, achieving an impressive accuracy rate of 95% in recent validation studies. Findaureus allows accelerating current research workflows and stands out for its superior performance, promising to accelerate discoveries in medical imaging and microbiological research.

As Findaureus paves the way for breakthroughs in understanding and treating bone infections, its impact extends beyond the laboratory, offering a powerful tool for researchers worldwide. With Findaureus at the forefront of medical imaging, we embark on a new era of precision medicine and scientific innovation.
