The Division of Nephrology reduced experiment duration by 80% while processing 3x more images.


Stanford was using three different pieces of software to identify, annotate, and count podocytes and glomeruli in microscopy images.


Stanford started using Encord's annotation tools & SDK to automate segmentations, count, and calculate sizes of segments.


With Encord, Stanford researchers reduced experiment duration from an average of 21 to 4 days while processing 3x the number of images.

  • 80% reduction in experiment duration
  • 3X number of images labeled
  • Using 1 platform and not 3
