IDx, Topcon sign exclusive AI platform agreement

Coralville company IDx, the first FDA-cleared autonomous AI diagnostic system, announced a new agreement with ophthalmic device manufacturer TopCon to scale delivery of the IDx diagnostics system for market, reports the Corridor Business Journal. The agreement grants exclusive rights to IDx in the U.S. as the only autonomous AI company permitted to sell products with the Topcon NW400, a robotic fundus camera. In turn, IDx agreed to assign the Topcon NW400 as the only robotic desktop fundus camera with less than a 55-degree field of view to be integrated with IDx-DR.
