About Us

Flagship Biosciences, Inc. is the world leader in image analysis pathology services. With advanced techniques centered around automated analysis of whole-slide microscope imagery processed on a cutting-edge, high-performance computing platform, Flagship analysts, scientists, and pathologists work with terabyte-scale image data to provide critical biological insight. Flagship develops its analytic and infrastructural technology in-house, providing truly unique capabilities not available anywhere else in  the market.

Our Information Technology Infrastructure and Team

Our Information Technology infrastructure and the Team behind it, provides a critical foundational layer that Flagship depends upon to enable these advanced image analysis pathology services. The IT Team also supports all the other IT resources that empower the day to day business functionality.
