Digital pathology is the means of capturing stained slides as high-resolution, brightfield or fluorescent images that are managed, stored, and visualized digitally. Digital pathology has several advantages over traditional microscopy that can improve project productivity and quality. This infographic highlights key benefits of implementing digital pathology in the laboratory.
MBA, Director of Product Management - Image Capture Systems at Leica Biosystems
Digital pathology is quickly growing across the globe as it offers increasing benefits to standardize and optimize the pathology lab workflow. Pathologists can now retrieve their cases in digital form and review and sign off cases using a PC and monitor. However, digital pathology companies offer many different monitors, depending on the company. Pathologists are often frustrated by the color variation of a digital image as it may not match the microscope color experience They often prefer a color that looks as close as possible to the typical experience using a microscope.
Product Manager, Brightfield Scanners & Clinical Systems
Digital pathology is a growing field, with multiple vendors offering a variety of hardware and software for different applications. With many options available for digital pathology scanners, viewing software, and both consumer and medical review monitors, users need the ability to adapt to variations in image appearance.
PhD, Director of Preclinical Development and Strategic Partnerships Cell IDx
At the Multiplex User Meeting hosted via LabRoots, Helen Snyder, PhD delivered a live session detailing Cell IDx’s UltraPlex chromogenic multiplex IHC technology. Their chromogenic detection system of 3-4 markers simultaneously is developed to run on BOND RX autostainer in 4-5 hours, providing maximal information on small tissue samples for biomarker discovery.
There is an ever-increasing demand to derive more information from limited research samples. Establishing expression profiles of the tumor microenvironment can be achieved via multiplex staining now with chromogenic detection. Discover how the new features of the Leica Biosystems BOND research system and new assays combine to support automated 6-plex chromogenic multiplexing.
Following our two-part webinar series of Tips & Tricks to Better Histology, further questions were raised by customers referring to specific issues encountered during histology/staining practice. Some of these questions are answered here to help combat issues experienced in the laboratory.
In Part 1 of a two-part webinar series hosted originally on LabRoots, Fiona Tarbet gives a comprehensive overview focusing on how to mitigate the common issues experienced during histology that subsequently affect the stages of tissue preparation and processing.
