Virtual Slide Scanning

Virtual Slide ScanningVirtual slide microscopy offers both pathologists and researchers the unique potential to acquire complete slides at maximum magnification and resolution, to enable diagnosis, analysis and archiving of samples for discussion both remotely or in online conferences.

Virtual slide technology enables users to exceed the limits of conventional digital microscopy and telepathology in both the size and the resolution of image files that can be discussed, as well as in time and location of discussion with colleagues.
