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”.
The patent covers the Grundium Ocus’ operating principle. It includes the device, its method of creating a very sharp image of the scanned slide, and the software with which the system is operated and the image viewed and shared. The way the Ocus performs the scan, including separate imaging for the RGB colors and changing focus in continuous motion, delivers the highest sharpness images in digital pathology.
The patent unequivocally recognizes the Grundium Ocus as a unique personal WSI microscope scanner. That all this excellence comes as a compact, beautifully designed object and at a fraction of the cost of a conventional multi-slide scanner is what makes the Grundium Ocus so important in driving digital pathology.
