Digital Pathology (Whole Slide Scanning)
Working with digital slides is easy because the sample information is seceded from the glass slide. Managing digital information is much easier and faster than using the glass slide. Why send the slide by post and wait for days for the answer when you can share your samples with anybody located anywhere in a matter of seconds? The digital slide can be made available for anybody by only pressing a button.
The other great advantage of digital slides is the standardizability. The quantification algorithms are a noteworthy aid in the pathologists’ work. The software always gives you an objective and consistent result. Although the pathologist can never be substituted with a computer the software can nevertheless provide a reliable standard that helps getting a diagnosis faster and in consistent quality.
Immunohistochemistry plays an ever growing role in today’s clinical research. Together with tissue microarrays, it poses a challenge that cannot be dealt effectively with the traditional microscopy. Virtual microscopy clearly shows its strengths here, too.* PerkinElmer is the exclusive distributor for 3D Histech Pannoramic digital slide scanners in the USA.
