Grundium API makes the Ocus slide scanner play in tune with your laboratory information system (LIS).

The Grundium Ocus vs. The Ocus40

Two practical scanners making the best professional diagnosis available for all life. What’s the difference? Here is how the Grundium Ocus® series offer a choice in telepathology and digital microscopy.

Grundium Launches A Second Microscope Scanner

On June 12th 2020 Grundium launches the Ocus®40 scanner, a sister model to the Ocus®, which has been on the market since 2018. The new scanner comes with a near-identical form factor and weight, but it does a few things differently from the previous model.

Telepathology With No Strings Attached

Moving from conventional light microscopes into digital pathology can seem daunting. Many digital systems are cumbersome and come with proprietary software, which require changing the hospital workflow. Big change is usually unwelcome, especially when resources and people are already scarce. The Grundium Ocus® makes the best professional diagnosis available for all life. Here’s why it is so easy to use.

The Grundium Image Stitching Method Is Patented

Grundium has been issued a US patent for high-accuracy image stitching.

Telepathology Made Simple: Remotely Operated Microscope Scanner

Pathologists need to be able to focus their time on their core expertise, on examining and diagnosing, not on traveling or waiting for slides to be shipped to them. To be able to cope with the increasing demand for their expertise, a pathologist must be able to view slides remotely, wherever they are.

(Eco-)Systemic Problems In Digital Pathology Workflows

The digital transformation of pathology is necessary, but even if the core technologies are already available, applying them in practice in hospital workflows takes time and effort. To speed things up, the benefits of novel methods over the existing must be clearly demonstrated.

What is driving digital pathology?

Pathology is in transition. There simply aren’t enough pathologists to go around. With an aging population the number of pathology cases and the number of samples to process keeps growing. Since just working more hours is not feasible for medical professionals in charge of diagnosing to save lives, we must find a way to make the pathologists work more efficiently.

The Grundium Imaging System Is Now Patented

Grundium has been issued a US patent of the title “Microscope comprising a movable objective-camera system with rolling shutter camera sensor and a multi-color strobe flash and method for scanning microscope slides with proper focus”.

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?
