The Biologic Revolution Demands More from Pathology

Pathology’s beginnings trace back to the Italian Renaissance, when physicians performed autopsies in an attempt to understand disease. The role of pathology has expanded dramatically since then ― influencing the entire scientific and medical continuum from research, bio-marker discovery, and safety studies, to intraoperative consults and personalized medicine.

We are now in the second decade of what is called the “Biologic Revolution” for Life Science. It’s essential that the maximum relevant biologic information be extracted from every specimen and shared among collaborators efficiently and expediently. Conventional glass slides do not support these capabilities or whole slide image analysis. Sharing glass slides among scientific peers or study partners have added complications―inaccurate scoring, inconsistent conclusions, and the difficulty of gaining concordance among pathologists. Additionally, there is the time, expense, and resources lost with glass shipping and tracking as well as travel for consults. Manual analytic processes are time-consuming and tedious and only scratch the surface of what the researcher can learn about the specimen.

Organizations stuck in these manual and outdated analog processes cannot access their data fast enough―and when they do, the data itself may be insufficient to support a decision. Today’s Life Science teams are challenged to keep pace with technological advancements and the demand to produce more with fewer resources. The labor and time intensive processes of current pathology practice have proven themselves to be too unyielding. Pathologists are looking to new technologies to help them further unleash their skills and collaborate more easily.

Capture Devices
