At AIndra, we're dedicated towards our mission of building innovative products and technologies to aid computational Pathology. We're working on making healthcare more accessible, affordable and agile.
AIndra was established in 2014 with the vision to build state of the art medical devices for screening Cervical Carcinoma. We are dedicated towards extending this to other Critical Illnesses as well.
Our vision goes beyond an informatics-centric view and leverages the core competency of pathology and the ability to effectively help pathologists be faster, more accurate and make more accurate diagnosis for patients.
We are focussed on building IoT based mechatronics systems that leads to new pathways to enhance the performance of Artificial Intelligence based Diagnostics Devices. This enables us to optimize patient care and make laboratories more efficient by reducing costs.

One Woman dies every 7 minutes in India due to Cervical Cancer. A cancer that can be treated if detected early. Most of India’s population lives in the rural areas and Healthcare is concentrated in the Urban areas. This leads to a lack of screening tools for Cervical Cancer in the rural areas. AIndra is on a mission to bridge this gap. We’re striving to provide every woman the access to an affordable screening modality for Cervical Cancer. Our creation CervAstra is the fruit of this vision. CervAstra is the combination of our Autostainer ‘Intellistain’, IAD ‘Visionex’ and AI Algorithm ‘Astra’ .
In our bid to fight morbidity and mortality due to cervical cancer, we have developed an advanced AI powered Cervical Cancer Detection System to facilitate early diagnosis. This system is a suite of 3 products which work cohesively to obtain quick and accurate test results.
Intellistain is a hassle free, compact and consistent autostainer. It is designed to meet the routine staining requirements of any setup. It supports staining procedures like Leishman, PAP and H&E staining. It is literally a walkaway system with an easy to use touch screen panel.
Image acquisition Device is a state of the art imaging device that digitizes a whole slide in less than 15 minutes. This device is the foundation computational Pathology and Tele-pathology. This device helps increase the capacity by providing clear and crisp digital images that can be read much faster and with ease than reading an image under a microscope.
The Artificial intelligence Algorithm ‘Astra’ is a robust algorithm which is a result of years of research at Aindra. With the rate at which Cervical Cancer cases are increasing, it will get difficult for the present pool of pathologists to review the samples within required time. Astra analyzes the digitized Whole Slide Image and segregates cells into HSIL, LSIL and Squamous cell carcinoma.
