Come see microscopic slides in a whole new way
ViewsIQ has invented Panoptiq, an interactive digital slide imaging tool built exactly for the pathologist, the technologist, and the medical laboratory science educator. Designed and trialed by top technologists at Canada's premier healthcare institutions, Panoptiq empowers the user to create panoramic images of microscopic slides "on the fly" right under the user's own microscope. This allows the user to see and communicate the microscopic view of the slide in a whole new way.
What is it?
The Panoptiq system begins with the microscope, manually driven by the user. With a camera and computer with proprietary imaging software to the microscope, Panoptiq creates a whole new way to view and share microscopic slides. The Panoptiq system allows the user to create panoramic images of the slide in real-time at extremely high resolution with any objective, even a 100x oil objective.
Where is it?
ViewsIQ welcomes all visitors to LABCON at booth #604 in Gatineau, Quebec.
What will the visitor experience?
Interactively capture panoramic images of pathology slides using 4x to 100x objectives.
Observe and build a panoramic image on the fly
Build a larger field of view of the tissue sample under microscopic observation by merely navigating the slide with a manual stage. Normally, the tissue sample is observed through a small field of view under the microscope. In contrast, Panoptiq captures the fields of view as the user observe the tissue sample and automatically stitches them "on the fly" into one panoramic image. At any time, the user can navigate and save the panoramic image on the computer through our user-friendly interface. With desktop sharing software, the user can even share the live view of the panoramic image for live consultations, tumor boards, and education.
Refocus the Image
Detect an out-of-focus portion in the panoramic image? Just return to that portion of the slide and readjust the focus with the microscope – the software automatically detects a better focus and replaces the out-of-focus portion with the refocused view. The Panoptiq system preserves the best focus achieved on the panoramic image, even if the slide is observed again at a sub-optimal focus.
The Panoptiq system includes a high performance computer, high resolution CCD Camera, and the Panoptiq software. System setup is simple. The system can be installed and ready to go within 15 minutes. Extended warranty and support packages are available. Please come to the ViewsIQ booth for more information.
