Visiopharm's Virtual™ makes it possible to work directly on scanned virtual (whole slide) images from allows the use on scanned virtual images from all major slide scanner brands.

TIME TO CHANGE?

Is your microscope hardware (microscope, stage, encoder or camera) getting old and giving you frequent issues? Is your computer slow and needs to be replaced but you are uncertain if your old hardware is still compatible with a new computer? Maybe it is time to start using whole slide technology?

HARDWARE INDEPENDENT STEREOLOGY

Upgrading your current Stereology system to use whole slide imaging with Visiopharm’s Virtual™ will allow you to instantly benefit from the technical advances in virtual microscopy. The Visiopharm software will read the whole slide and you perform the stereological analysis completely separated from hardware. You no longer have to perform analysis for hours in a small dark room with no windows!

MUCH FASTER

The analysis is up to 10 times more efficient using whole slides for your stereological analysis due to several time-saving steps:

  • Overview image is instantly created
  • During sampling, the field of view is shown promptly with no need to focus or move the stage.
  • Easy to analyze the next slide as all images are pre-imported into the database in seconds. You do not need to mount a new slide on the microscope – they are already in the database.
  • No need to calibrate and solving hardware issues on the microscope!

Advantages of Virtual™:

  • Analyze anywhere due to separated image acquisition and analysis.
  • Possibility for image/slide sharing with other labs
  • Navigate the virtual slide and change magnifications as if on a live microscope
  • Save your counts directly on the image. The counts can be reviewed later for documentation.
  • No need to calibrate or solve hardware issues on the microscope!

The efficiency is even more enhanced using the automated add-on modules from Visiopharm: Autodisector™ and Proportionator™.

Even more benefits:

Separate image acquisition and analysis process allows analysis on lab-top at any location

  • Possibility for image/slide sharing with other labs
  • Navigate in the virtual slide and change magnifications as if on a live microscope
  • Save your counts directly on the image. The counts can be reviewed later for documentation.
