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:

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:

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

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!

Example 1: Core biopsy of an ovarian cancerThis example shows a core biopsy scanned at 10x magnification. With PathoZoom Scan it is possible to combine two digital scans (in this case HE and immunohistochemistry) in one file just by “freezing” the first image and scanning the second image in the same session. The scanning took about 60 seconds (2×30 seconds).

Example2: Molluscum contagiosumThis example shows a skin biopsy of a molluscum contagiosum scanned at 10x magnification. The scanning took about 30 seconds.

Example 3: Malaria tropica, hematologyWith PathoZoom® Scan, you can also scan with oil. In this example, the peripheral blood smear of a patient with Malaria was scanned in oil at 40x (mimicking a 63-80x for the human eye). Because of an excellent microscope, the quality exceeds the quality of a U$100k scanner for hematologic cytomorphology. The scanning took about 60 seconds.

Example 4: Exfoliative cytology of the cervix PAP IThis example shows the cervical cytology scanned at 40x magnification. In this resolution, all relevant nuclear changes are visible. The scanning took about 90 seconds.


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.
