DIH Enterprise - A scalable and robust choice for Digital Pathology networks.

Leica Biosystems has introduced two new product offerings to their portfolio. Digital Pathology use cases are multifaceted and these new solutions provide direct support for two of the fastest growing applications of this emerging technology.

A fully integrated scanner with a web-enabled management system offers a straightforward solution for entry level users, while the scalable, multi-site PACS is a comprehensive option for multi-site networks.

Digital Image Hub (DIH) Enterprise provides an optimized PACS environment to support clinical and pharmaceutical Digital Pathology networks where scanners reside at multiple distributed physical locations.

With on-demand access, DIH Enterprise provides the benefit of viewing and searching of images concurrently from multiple different sites through a single database.

This eliminates unnecessary transfer of large files over networks, facilitating real-time access to content anywhere on users collaborative network.

Compatible with multiple whole slide file formats and the new DICOM 145 Digital Pathology image standard, DIH Enterprise provides a flexible platform to network multiple sites, which may be utilizing slide scanners from different vendors.

Including comprehensive inbuilt security, with powerful yet uncomplicated user management, HIPAA technical controls and slide anonymization of images for external users, DIH Enterprise is a scalable and robust choice for Digital Pathology networks.

Advanced capabilities for LIS/LIMS integration ensure the system fits into any current workflow, while best-in-class security including on-server support for PKI encrypted images facilitates on-premise or cloud deployment.

Arnd Kaldowski, President of Leica Biosystems stated, “Leica Biosystems continues to break new ground in Digital Pathology. By offering a secure, scalable, distributed Digital Pathology PACS, we enable our customers to embrace the power and reliability of enterprise quality technology. Through flexible workflows and integration potential, we deliver tailored Digital Pathology solutions in an efficient, optimal and ergonomic manner.”

For those looking to start utilizing the power of Digital Pathology, the Leica SCN400 with DIH Solo is the first fully integrated scanner and web-enabled image server, including onboard capacity for over 10,000 whole slide images.

Offering out of the box, plug-and-play access to online Digital Pathology the unparalleled image quality of the SCN400 combined with the power and ease of use of DIH is a comprehensive, yet affordable Digital Pathology system.

The added ability to deploy over HTTP or HTTPS and integrated HIPAA technical controls ensures that the system incorporates security and protection of sensitive information, while multi-participant conferencing capabilities increase access for slide discussion with remote experts.

“Our new plug-and-play Digital Pathology solution addresses the growing need for a powerful but cost-effective means of rapidly scanning and sharing slides in a reliable, secure manner without the burden of excessive IT overheads,” further commented Arnd.

For rapid sharing and real-time publishing of slides, both the multi-site and on-box solutions facilitate online remote review of slides minutes after they have been cover slipped.

Access and review is available from the office, home or on the move through the integrated DIH web viewer, or SlidePath Gateway iPad and client viewers.
