About Us

Vetcyte is the result of research done at Techcyte, which began as an idea to classify white blood cells using computer vision from Dr. Mohamed Salama that was purchased by Ralph Yarro in a technology transfer from the University of Utah in 2013. Since that initial idea, Techcyte has led the Cellular Digital Pathology revolution by combining the knowledge and skills of a veterinary pathologist with the latest deep learning networks.

We believe that individual cells hold clues to diagnosing disease. By analyzing cell morphology, phenotypic characteristics can reveal genotype, conditions and diseases, getting us closer to providing precision medicine.

Research and Drug Development

Vetcyte is poised to address some of the most challenging problems facing the research and pharmaceutical industries. Using our AI platform and labeled data, Techcyte can create a custom, scalable solution to find the most critical research and drug development questions.

Clinical & Lab Diagnostic Testing

Vethcyte’s platform uses deep learning image analysis to assist pathologist in making critical diagnostic decisions. By partnering with cutting edge laboratories, we’re making the best possible algorithms to assist diagnosis.

Developing Countries

We’re passionate about making healthcare more affordable and accessible to all, especially those in developing countries. Become our partner in delivering low cost solutions to those that need it most.
