Visiopharm has entered an agreement with HAMAMATSU to sell their portfolio of slide scanners, co-branded as Oncotopix® Scan, for clinical customers in Europe.


For many diagnostic pathology labs, implementing Digital Pathology is a major and often disruptive step. They are looking for a partner that can provide complete solutions in a way that is incremental, scalable, cost efficient and risk free in each step.

Our goal is to assist the customers building a modern and effective diagnostic workplace with new time saving and quality enhancing tools. The Oncotopix® solution is designed to deliver:

  • A functional diagnostic digital pathology solution with cutting edge tools that are easy and cost effective to integrate in existing workflows.
  • Compatibility with all major pathology workflow solutions. Manage patient data and digital whole slides in a secure and effective way from within the LIS/LIMS or PACS system.
  • An open platform enabling the user to add new diagnostic tools as the technology evolves.

Adding a slide scanner to the Oncotopix® solutions is a logical next step to provide a fully functional solution for Visiopharm’s diagnostic customers.

“Over the last 5 years, we have sold and successfully deployed the Hamamatsu Nanozoomer slide scanners in around 30 diagnostic pathology labs in the Nordic countries. These systems are developed to meet the demands of a high through-put laboratory and has proven to be a reliable component in the digital pathology workflow. This has given us a lot of trust in Hamamatsu both as an organization and as a provider of scanning technology for this rapidly evolving diagnostic field”

Rickard Lindelöf, Sr. VP of Clinical Product Management in Visiopharm.

“Hamamatsu Photonics, a leading manufacturer of Whole Slide Image (WSI) scanners, are delighted with the collaboration with Visiopharm, a digital pathology software and solution integrator.  We are pleased that our renowned range of WSI scanners will form a key part of an integrated digital pathology solution.  We expect this collaboration will contribute to the more rapid use of integrated digital pathology

Just as for other medical fields, DICOM is expected to play a significant role in pathology as a universal and fundamental standard in digital medical imaging. The value chain of solution components in a digital pathology lab is both long and complex, which makes the adoption of standards as DICOM all the more important.

"One of the visions driving DICOM in general is to give users the freedom to choose the best-of-breed solution components, rather than being tied to single vendor", says Mikael Wintel who has been one of the driving forces behind the adaptation of the DICOM standard to the digital pathology field, through his work as co-chair of Working Group 26. Mikael Wintell is also panelist at the upcoming DICOM Digital Pathology Connect-a-thon at Pathology Visions.
