The Ocus®20 is a small but powerful microscope scanner for digital pathology, particularly suitable for frozen section samples and rapid onsite evaluation (ROSE). It comes with a comparable magnification of 20x, meaning it is perfectly optimized for delivering sharp images fast.
Most slide scanners are big pieces of equipment, requiring their own table or even room to operate, not always close to the lab. Because the Ocus®20 is so small, just 18 x 18 x 19 cm (ca. 8 x 8 x 8”), it can find a space in any corner of a desk in any lab.
Fast and Efficient
For maximum throughput and speed multiple scanners are run side by side, with one slide scanning while the next is being prepared. Read this testimonial about how Fimlab validated a fast digital frozen section process operated by laboratory technicians.
Digital Pathology Made Simple
The web-based user interface of the Ocus®20 is so simple and intuitive that anybody can be trained to use it in just 15 minutes. A lab tech can prepare and scan the slide onsite, and an expert can sign out and diagnose on their computer just as well right next to the scanner as in a different country. The long 5 um depth-of-field and Z-stacking of up to 5 layers reveal sharp details even in less than perfect samples. This makes the Ocus®20 excellent for tissue pathology.
The Ocus®20 is an incredibly practical tool for tissue pathology, second opinion and sharing scanned images online. Book a personal, non-binding and free of charge demo here.
