Digitize slides – and work together on them easily
With the powerful power package PathoZoom Scan & PathoZoom LiveView you share histological slides either with one mouse click and present live. Laboratories and colleagues can immediately view and annotate the image online. Thus, branch offices are connected to the laboratory in no time – via plug & play. This cost-effective power package is, therefore, the perfect solution for:
- Frozen sections:
Scan and send your complete preparation to colleagues immediately. You can highlight important areas using simple marking functions.
- Second opinions:
With PathoZoom® Scan you can quickly get an opinion from colleagues.
- Training and further education:
Integrate your slides into our – worldwide used – e-learning platform.
Show your digital images at conferences and tumor boards.
Install the “Whole Slide Scanning” tool for telepathology easily in minutes – without any IT knowledge.
Transfer your current microscope image in real time and highest resolution to one or more colleagues simultaneously. Or view a slide live from the road while your colleague is working on it. This makes teaching and discussion microscopes a thing of the past.
PathoZoom® Scan has NO moving parts. Therefore the solution is extremely robust and does not require any maintenance. The advantage is a high reliability compared to automatic scanners.
Digitizing and sharing specimens is as simple as this
- Scanning with your own microscope
Scan your slide e.g. with your microscope (PathoZoom® Scan has no moving parts and is therefore robust and reliable).
- Upload to the PathoZoom® SlideCloud
Upload your image into the PathoZoom® SlideCloud and use the practical tools like the comment function.
- Simply send to colleagues
Share your preparation with one click via e-mail or other channels. Your colleagues can view and comment on the image from anywhere, at any time.
The following specimens were scanned with PathoZoom® Scan. The quality of the scans depends on your microscope. With an excellent microscope you can exceed the quality of expensive automated scanners!
Scanning slides manually is a good solution for many areas – but not always. A decisive factor is time: while scanning biopsies at 20x only takes 2-3 minutes, scanning a large specimen (>20x20mm²) at 40x can easily take an hour. Our team will help you to find out whether manual scanning is a good choice for you or offer you inexpensive alternative solutions.
Good reasons to consider manual slide-scanning:
- External sites of your pathology lab: Get brief consultations from your main laboratory.
- Your samples should be scanned at low magnifications (2x, 4x, 10x)
- Your samples need to be scanned at 20x or 40x magnification, but they are small or it is ok to scan a subregion (up to 10x10mm²)
- Your samples have a clear outline and all parts of the tissue on the slide are connected
- You need to scan slides occasionally
Good reasons to consider motorized slide-scanning:
- You need to scan many slides regularly
- The barcode labels of your slides should be read automatically
- The samples on your slides are large (> 20x20mm²) and need to be scanned at 40x magnifications
- Most of your samples consist of multiple parts that are not connected to each other
