Partnership to make digital pathology more accessible
Olympus and Grundium are collaborating to combine their expertise in microscopy optics and digital imaging to benefit pathology.
Grundium has incorporated Olympus’ high-performance X Line objectives into its Ocus portable single slide scanners to enable convenient creation and sharing of high-quality digital slides. The combined solution brings flexibility and reliability to pathologists’ remote consultations. In addition, as part of the partnership, Olympus now offers the Ocus product line with integrated X Line objectives across Europe and North America.
With the addition of Grundium’ Ocus single slide scanners, Olympus expands its range of digital pathology solutions. A cost-effective telepathology instrument, Ocus scanners accelerate workflows for applications requiring peer consultation, including intraoperative frozen section review, Rapid On-Site Evaluation (ROSE) and second opinions. Pathologists can use the Ocus scanner’s high portability and wireless connectivity to rapidly scan and share slides from any location. This flexibility enables experts to immediately evaluate samples remotely.
Integrated into Ocus scanners, X Line objectives’ advanced optical performance optimises the quality of the digital slides produced. Fabricated using a proprietary lens-polishing technology, X Line objectives are the culmination of Olympus’ more than 100 years of optical design and manufacturing experience. Offering a high numerical aperture (NA), improved image flatness, and a wide chromatic correction range, X Line objectives provide the brightness, resolution, and colour accuracy that pathology requires.
