The Spatial Biology Company® offers the most comprehensive, end-to-end solutions for high-parameter tissue analysis from discovery through clinical and translational research, which enables the development of more precise therapies for immuno-oncology and other drug development applications.
The CODEX (CO-Detection by indEXing) is a technology of Akoya Biosciences that provides a comprehensive solution for spatially-resolved, highly multiplexed biomarker analysis (tissue assay). The technology is powered by complex software products that include a multiplex analysis viewer (MAV), analysis manager (CAM), hardware controlling software – instrument Manager (CIM), and a few other software parts. To be delivered to the actual clients this product required the full implementation of key features. Akoya contracted Akvelon to help the internal development team to deliver the entire solution on time.
The Akvelon team evolved the Swing-based desktop app (MAV) from prototyping to a fully-functioning software with rich data analysis functionality. During the development optimizations of initial algorithms provided several times speedups of application features.
Our team also took part in the development of CAM, a client-server application based on Spring Boot with Angular frontend. The team successfully solved a range of issues related to experiment processing functionality managed via RabbitMQ with MongoDB as storage.
The quality assurance team was involved in comprehensive testing of the software: regression, integration, stress, and system testing.
