Its browser-based interface is designed for quick, hassle-free scanning, requiring just a couple of clicks and minutes to achieve full magnification of your sample.

3. Effortless collaboration
When it comes to collaboration in the field of pathology, the Ocus scanner is genuinely in a league of its own. Offering an unparalleled range of options for sharing images, the Ocus scanners revolutionize how labs can seek second opinions.

But it doesn't stop there; the Ocus scanner takes collaboration to the next level by allowing you to grant remote access to trusted colleagues: they can log in from anywhere and view stored scans directly on the device. No other scanner on the market offers such a seamless, integrated approach to expert consultation and collaborative diagnosis.
And let's not forget the built-in 500GB storage server, a feature that mitigates the need for additional hardware. This means you can store hundreds of high-resolution images directly on the scanner itself. It's not just convenience; it's about streamlining your operations in a way that no other device can match. With the Ocus scanner, you're not just keeping up with the industry standards; you're setting new ones.
4. Fits existing workflows
The Ocus scanner isn't just about top-notch imaging; it's about integrating into your existing workflows and elevating them to new heights. With support for the most widely used digital pathology file formats, .svs and .tiff, you can transfer images to network drives or upload them to specialized cloud services or digital pathology consultation services offered by your provider.
5. Revolutionary, compact design
The Ocus scanner's compact design, measuring just 7 inches in all dimensions and weighing a mere 7.7 lbs, makes it a versatile addition to any lab environment. Its small footprint not only allows for easy placement and relocation but also makes it a perfect fit for labs where space is at a premium.
Even better, you can conveniently place it right on your desk, saving you valuable time that can be better utilized in the consult process. Despite its compact size, the Ocus scanner delivers top-tier performance without requiring any vibration isolation tables or additional equipment, ensuring you get the best of both worlds — efficiency and functionality, without the bulk.
