Free remote pathology solution for healthcare institutions affected by COVID-19
Cancer informatics and digital pathology solution provider Inspirata has announced a free remote pathology initiative, available to healthcare institutions looking to provide flexibility to their staff during COVID-19. In an important boost to this campaign, Inspirata is now joined by two industry partners, Hamamatsu and KiKo, Knowledge in Knowledge out. Hamamatsu will provide its high-quality research use only (RUO) Whole Slide Image (WSI) scanner, NanoZoomer, to scan glass slides submitted by institutions for research and secondary consults, but will not be used for any primary human diagnosis.
The founders of KiKo Knowledge Hub, a knowledge-sharing platform for pathologists and other physicians, will leverage their pathology practitioners’ expertise to ensure successful scanning and processing of all received pathology slides. Inspirata will continue to offer its comprehensive pathology workflow solution, which enables the remote use and sharing of cases among pathologists.
“This is an important validation of our efforts to support the community. Our successful past digital pathology collaborations make Hamamatsu and KiKo optimal partners for this initiative,” says Dr Mark Lloyd, EVP and Founder of Inspirata.
The new free remote pathology service is available through Inspirata’s dedicated COVID-19 Preparedness page. To learn more and request access, click on the link below.
