Remote use enables easy collaboration

The Ocus®20's capability for remote use significantly enhances collaborative efforts among medical professionals, particularly pathologists. This feature allows for the real-time sharing and analysis of high-quality digital slides, making it possible for experts to collaborate on diagnoses from different locations. Whether it's a complex case that benefits from a second opinion or a routine analysis that requires confirmation, the Ocus®20 facilitates a seamless exchange of insights and expertise.
Moreover, this remote capability is not just about sharing images; it's about fostering a more integrated approach to pathology. By enabling easy access to digital slides, the Ocus®20 breaks down geographical barriers, allowing specialists to contribute their knowledge and skills regardless of their physical location. This level of collaboration can lead to more accurate diagnoses, enhanced learning opportunities, and ultimately, better patient care. The Ocus®20, therefore, is not just a tool for digitizing slides; it's a platform for collaborative excellence in the field of pathology.

Integrability to existing workflows

The Ocus®20 integrates seamlessly into existing workflows, thanks to its compact size, durable construction, and streamlined user interface. Its design enables rapid setup, taking just 15 minutes from unboxing to full operation, minimizing disruption to ongoing lab activities. This ease of use extends to its operational capabilities, where the intuitive, browser-based interface allows for hassle-free scanning and image sharing without the need for additional software installations.

Furthermore, the Ocus®20 supports multiple image export options and is compatible with widely used whole slide image (WSI) formats, simplifying the integration into existing digital pathology ecosystems. Its secure remote connectivity feature enhances collaborative diagnostics by enabling users to control the scanner, view images, and collaborate with experts from any location, further integrating the scanner into telepathology networks.

Designed with minimal maintenance requirements and a small footprint, the Ocus®20 does not just fit into physical spaces within labs easily but also adapts to the operational flow, ensuring that labs can maximize their efficiency without the need for extensive reconfiguration of their existing setup. This adaptability, combined with the scanner's cost-effectiveness and high-quality imaging capabilities, makes it an ideal choice for labs looking to transition into digital pathology or expand their current capabilities with minimal overhead.

Fimlab validated a remote frozen section process
