There simply aren’t enough pathologists to handle the ever increasing amount of cases by conventional methods. Pathologists spend much of their time traveling to where the samples are or waiting for slides to reach them. Digital pathology and remote viewing are the way to go, but the available solutions are often too expensive and cumbersome to implement.
The Grundium Ocus® microscope slide scanners are designed and built specifically to remove the entry barrier to telepathology. The Ocus® series whole slide scanners, along with 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.
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.
If you are in need of fast, reliable, and practical single slide scanners with superb image quality, the Grundium Ocus® scanner is your best choice. See our scanner models below.
The Ocus®20 is optimized for fast and effortless scanning at comparable magnification of 20x. Thanks to its the 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.
