The Grundium Ocus® microscope slide scanners are designed and built to remove the entry barrier to remote pathology. The Ocus® series whole slide scanners and our browser-based user interface are very easy to use – anyone can learn to use them in just fifteen minutes. Both the Ocus20® and Ocus40® are single slide scanners with highly competitive scan times, and sharing scanned images, for example, to a colleague for a second opinion, can be done in multiple ways within minutes.
Forget the costly and time-consuming process of shipping slides or traveling to different locations to view the slides, let alone waiting for the samples at the site. Using Ocus® scanners, you can access crystal-clear digital images of the samples at any given time suitable for you, regardless of your location, using any computer you are already using for your work. Step into the digital era of pathology with the most practical slide scanner on the market – The Ocus®.
The Grundium Ocus® microscope scanners are exceptionally small in size and weight, and their patented imaging system takes incredibly sharp and clear images. Power it up, connect it to your device via wifi or cable and you're ready to start scanning. The user interface is browser-based and no proprietary software is needed, which means you can use it with any computer, a tablet, or even a smartphone (but we recommend a larger screen). No processing power from the used device is required, as all the processing is done on the scanner's onboard computer.
The scan times for a 15x15mm sample are approximately 60 seconds for the Ocus®20 (20x equivalent) and 180 seconds for the Ocus®40 (40x equivalent). The scanned images can be exported and shared instantly in various file formats (JPG, SVS, TIFF) in multiple ways, for example via email, uploaded to your own cloud or exported to an external USB drive that connects directly to the scanner. The Ocus® scanners also function as slide servers, as they have an internal storage space of 500GB and a secure remote access can be set up. <br/><br/>
A whole slide scanner and a digital microscope scanner refer to the same device, offering advanced capabilities beyond conventional microscopy. These scanners enable the digitization of entire microscope slides, providing high-resolution images that can be viewed, analyzed, and shared digitally. Unlike traditional microscopy, they eliminate the need for physical slides and allow for remote access to slides and collaboration among researchers. With improved efficiency, precise image capturing, and the ability to store and retrieve vast amounts of data, whole slide and digital microscope scanners revolutionize the field of microscopy, facilitating research, education, and diagnostic processes.
The Ocus®20 is optimized for fast and effortless scanning at a comparable magnification of 20x. Thanks to its perfect balance between image resolution and scan time, it’s especially suitable for intraoperative frozen sections and histopathology.
The Ocus®40 is designed to scan images at very high image resolution with its comparable magnification of 40x. This makes it suitable for a wide range of applications, such as cytology.
