Optrascan Third Generation On-Demand Digital Pathology System
Optrascan launched its third generation On-Demand Digital Pathology system for researchers and clinicians. The firm said that its third generation Optrascan brightfield scanner is now able to acquire a whole slide image from a formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded sample on a glass slide in under 60 seconds and at the cost of a traditional digital microscope. The next generation system is available at a price of $20,000. With faster scan times, it will provide technicians and physicians access to images quickly and help keep their workflow moving at a steady pace, Optrascan said.
