Title: Benefits of Image Analysis in Biomarker Discovery
Presented by – Catherine Conway, B.Sc.,  Ph.D., Senior Product Manager, ePathology Image Analysis, Leica Biosystems

Overview:

Biomarker discovery and evaluation are an integral part of translational research. The interpretation of biomarkers is traditionally performed manually, using a microscope. Scientists are extremely effective at performing morphometric assessment, which involves identifying patterns and structures within tissue. However, human vision is inherently flawed when trying to decipher differences between colors – vital for analysis of immunohistochemically stained tissue.  In addition, manual techniques – such as in situ hybridization signal counting – can be laborious and time consuming. Due to limitations of manual assessment methods, inter- and intra-observer variability are very real concerns when evaluating biomarkers.

This webinar will discuss how automated Image Analysis can enhance your translational research. Image Analysis allows for truly quantitative evaluation, introducing standardization and reproducibility into your biomarker discovery process. Additional benefits of creating a digital image, including remote access and collaboration, will also be discussed.

Title:
Aperio eSlide Manager: Latest Developments in Digital Pathology
Presented by – Colin Doolan, B.Sc., Senior Product Manager, Aperio ePathology

Overview:
The modern pathology laboratory faces significant challenges in consolidating vast amounts of data stored in multiple different systems with pathology slides. Separation of slides and data leads to inefficiencies in the laboratory, quality risks and additional costs associated with delays in completing pathology reviews.

Digital pathology promises a solution to these challenges, but adopting this exciting technology is just the first step. Well-defined workflows, fast image viewing and ease of use are critical to ensure every stakeholder in the pathology process has access to the data they need, when they need it. Without these critical elements, digital pathology won't solve those challenges - it adds to them.

Aperio eSlide Manager from Leica Biosystems is an innovative digital pathology solution offering unparalleled flexibility in managing and sharing digital slides and associated metadata. With tailored user workflows, web-based or client viewing options, and customizable, role-based access permission, you can quickly - and easily - share entire projects, clinical cases or individual digital slides with collaborators across your global network.

Join this live webinar to learn how Aperio eSlide Manager can help improve your pathology process.
