Big Versatility In A Small Device

Because of its small footprint, just 18 x 18 x 19 cm (ca. 8 x 8 x 8”), the Ocus®40 can find a space in any corner of a desk in any lab. The browser-based user interface of the Ocus®40 is so simple and intuitive that anybody can be trained to use it in just 15 minutes. The high resolution, secure online connectivity and the intuitive user interface make the Ocus®40 suitable for a very wide range of applications.

Scan time of a 15x15mm sample is circa 180 seconds. From Grundium's browser-based user interface, the high-quality images can immediately be exported in JPG, SVS and TIFF formats and shared via email, uploaded to cloud services or exported an external USB drive – or all at once. In addition, the device can be used as a slide server, as it has an internal storage of 500 gigabytes and a secure remote access can be set up. Grundium also offers an API to integrate the Ocus® scanners to your own workflow. Read more about the API here.

Powerful Imaging Component

The Ocus®40 is designed to excel as the imaging component in a system of multiple laboratories. It enables digital pathology for clinics and labs with an outsourced pathology service, where images are created locally, but diagnosed remotely.

The Philips IntelliSite Digital Pathology Solution has the capabilities to upload, view and annotate the images produced from the Grundium scanner. Zooming and panning is really fast, even when the images are physically stored on a server in the Netherlands and I’m viewing the images from a workstation in Sweden.
