High-throughput brightfield scanning platform

With a throughput of ~80 slides per hour at 20x and an intuitive user interface, the scanner design is targeted towards speed, efficiency and flexible workflow.

Improve Efficiency

High-speed, high-throughput scanning with 360-slide capacity increases productivity.

Optimize Workflow

Continuous random access and STAT slide override allows users to prioritize and change workflow at a moment’s notice.

Enhance Flexibility

Users can customize profiles of frequently seen cases, utilize 1D and 2D barcode reading and choose 20x or 40x magnification.

Digitize a high volume of slides with walk-away automation
  • 360-slide capacity
  • 80 slides per hour at 20X; 50 slides per hour at 40X
Novel slide-handling design
  • Vacuum slide handling ensures slides are handled safely
  • Robust design allows for continuous operation
True continuous access
  • Decoupled slide loading and unloading maximizes throughput and workfl ow
  • Innovative slide loading provides continuous slide access without workfl ow interruption
Exceptional images with cutting-edge optics
  • Cutting-edge optics minimize the need for slide rescanning, allowing you to efficiently generate accurate results the first time
  • Ability to image multiple layers using volume scan technology ("Z-stacking")
Flexible workflow
  • See the status of slides and racks at any time
  • Ability to automatically read 1D, 2D and 2D417 barcodes enables a streamlined workflow and mitigates labelling and user transcription errors
Manage worklist in real time
  • Automatic STAT reprioritization allows for workflow changes in real time
  • Real-time editing of scan settings and rack order for racks in the worklist
Fully integrated with the Virtuoso software
  • Images are sent automatically to the Virtuoso image server after scanning
  • The unique slide identifier is sent to the Virtuoso software and used to associate the slide images with the correct case information from the LIS
View crisp, high-quality images with Image Viewer
  • Integrated with Image Viewer for comprehensive image viewing and annotation capabilities — including measurement tools, free-hand mark-up and text fields
  • Images can be viewed at magnifications up to 80X (achieved with digital zoom)
