Practicing sustainability in the histology laboratory shapes paradigms in four fundamental ways: minimizing our impact on the Earth, maintaining our well-being, decreasing the cost of waste management in the laboratory, and discovering new processes affecting our daily work. 

Current technology allows tumors to be painted with multiple colors, termed multiplex staining. Multiplex staining today used in research, may also assist with cancer diagnoses clinically via: preservation of tissue, improved diagnostic accuracy, and enhanced diagnostic insight.

During the pandemic in which pathologists around the world have remained at home or reduced their time in the lab to avoid unnecessary exposure, digital pathology has offered a ray of hope, allowing them to continue to perform their duties remotely.

Cytogenomics is the study of genetics that studies chromosomes and their relation to diseases. Through a combined analysis of chromosomes and molecular tests, clinicians can better understand and treat disease states.

In this article we will discuss how we measure usability specifically with Histotechnicians using, among other techniques, an innovative approach called the System Usability Scale (SUS).

Digital pathology incorporates the acquisition, management, sharing and interpretation of pathology information — including slides and data — in a digital environment.

Leica Biosystems digital pathology engineers realize a breakthrough to real time focusing (RTF), achieving extremely high-speed line scanning at 40x magnification.

Brain damage from football, improvised explosive devices, and childhood falls has spurred a surge of funding for research on impact brain damage.
