Digital imaging system

The MacroPATH D Digital Imaging System for grossing and necropsy environments is now available. It is an image capture, annotation, and storage system that replaces tedious manual technologies with a quicker and more flexible work solution. Start a case with the touch screen interface, sealed keyboard, or barcode reader. It features a 9-megapixel auto-focus/auto-light adjusting camera, and robust annotation tools. Audio and video recording allow users to easily document routine and special cases. All assets (.jpg, .mp3, .avi) can be collected into one case folder for easy access or transferred into an LIS.

Cloud pathology system

The cloud pathology platform with Simagis Live™ cloud software can connect scanners to a private cloud server and start collaborating. The system uploads slides from a local computer; aggregates them to cases; and keeps track of images, documents, and comments. Users can share slides with a single click, invite others to their workspace, or include live images in .pdf reports. Live markers provide instant measurements, and a zero-footprint web viewer enables instant access to images from any browser including mobile devices. By adding attributes to slides and cases, users can create knowledge libraries from slide collections and use a variety of interactive applications to run image analysis, including  IHC bookmakers and Complete Blood Count, among others. Cloud Pathology System works with all major scanners.

Whole slide scanner

TISSUEscope™ HS is a high-throughput, high-capacity brightfield whole slide scanner. It features a 300-slide capacity. A typical slide takes only seconds to scan.  It can be integrated with any LIS and suits the workflows and IT infrastructures of the pathology laboratory. This new addition to the TISSUEscope product line augments the TISSUEscope 4000 slide scanner. The line offers confocal fluorescence and the ability to image a wide variety of slide sizes, ranging from 1″x 3″ to 6″ x 8″ for whole organ digitization. It provides field-of-view magnitudes greater than microscope objectives for faster scan speeds and less image artifacts such as stitching and photo-bleaching.
