Grundium Ocus portable whole slide imaging microscope
The Grundium Ocus portable whole slide imaging microscope removes the need for physical slide transfers between the clinic and the laboratory and enables live telepathology consultations between surgeons, pathologists, scientists and researchers practically anywhere on the planet, making it significant for the field of digital pathology. Field studies of the natural world can also be conducted on-site, examining plants, insects or anything else requiring microscopy for correct analysis.
The microscope is a precision tool designed to be small enough to be on every medical professional’s desk. Featuring a 6 MP image sensor, it is portable and can be brought anywhere as it is compact and lightweight, weighing only 3.5 kg. It has multiple connectivity options for local and remote usage, and can be connected locally to a laptop, tablet or phone. It also has independent Wi-Fi and Ethernet support to enable direct internet connection, cloud support and remote access. It is easy to use, with a 500 GB internal hard drive, automated X Y stage with full (1″ x 3″) slide scanning, and an overview image option allowing automated trimming of areas to be scanned that are adjustable by the user.
The user can view, digitise, record and file microscope slides in-house, at their desk. The Grundium Ocus automatically stitches scanned images and saves them on the hard drive or swiftly exports them to cloud storage. When paired with a mobile phone, the image files can be immediately shared with colleagues in the laboratory or with an expert or researcher anywhere in the world. Slides can also be viewed in live mode on a larger screen. Specimens can also be viewed in Z-Direction to focus on the essential layer.
Digital pathology is enabled by whole slide imaging, which means converting traditional glass slides into digital files that can be viewed, managed and analysed on a computer monitor or shared in real time with colleagues all over the world, especially for a second opinion. WSI devices enable easier patient history recording and storage. Scanned samples become part of a patient’s medical record and can be easily retrieved or shared for review.
