Personal Slide Scanner vs. Conventional Multi-slide Scanner
In digital pathology, a small portable scanner can handle some workflows better than conventional big scanners. As the awareness of an alternative to multi-slide scanners grows, comparing similarities and differences is a convenient way of wrapping one’s head around a new idea. Scanning speed often comes up as a metric to contest the platforms. But does it really matter?

Conventional vs. Digital Microscopy
In conventional light microscopy the magnification of the objective lens is very straight forward, a 20x lens magnifies the image 20 times. Thus, viewed through a 40x lens, objects seem twice as big as with a 20x lens. It’s logical, that the pathologist wants a turret of objectives with a range of magnification to be able to get an overview of the sample, to examine it and to make an informed diagnosis. It also seems logical to think a higher magnification objective is “better”. But does it matter what it says on the tin?
Finnish Biotechnology Innovation Hits Billion-Euro Markets
Grundium, a technology company in the digital pathology sphere, has entered into a major dealership contract with Alliance Global Group. This high-powered partner will help the Finnish company’s portable microscope gain a strong foothold in the rapidly-expanding health technology markets in the Middle East, Africa, and Asia. Due to this contract, millions of people will have improved access to healthcare services— Grundium’s technology allows pathologists to work with and diagnose patients while on the other side of the world.
Removing the Entry Barrier for Going Digital
Digital pathology is sometimes still seen as costly and workflow-crippling future tech. Subsequently medical equipment suppliers work hard to overcome the entry barrier for going digital. There is, however, new technology, which makes business sense for both parties and is compatible with any workflow.
Solving the Biggest Problems in Digital Pathology
Pathologists keep running into the same problems in their work over and over. The bottlenecks are in the logistics of people and slides, getting a second opinion fast, organizing the workflow, dealing with digital compatibility and having the right tools for the job.
2019 Outlook And Trends In Digital Pathology
