Cancer informatics and digital pathology solution provider Inspirata had previously announced its free remote pathology initiative, available to healthcare institutions looking to provide flexibility to their staff during COVID-19. In an important boost to this campaign, Inspirata has since been joined by two industry partners, Hamamatsu and KiKo, Knowledge in Knowledge out.

Hamamatsu will provide its high-quality research use only (RUO) Whole Slide Image (WSI) scanner, NanoZoomer, to scan glass slides submitted by institutions for research and secondary consults. This device will not be used for any primary human diagnosis.

The founders of KiKo Knowledge Hub, a knowledge-sharing platform for pathologists and other physicians, will leverage their pathology practitioners’ expertise to ensure successful scanning and processing of all received pathology slides.

Inspirata will continue to offer its comprehensive pathology workflow solution, which enables the actual remote use and sharing of cases among pathologists.

"This is an important validation of our efforts to support the community. Our successful past digital pathology collaborations make Hamamatsu and KiKo optimal partners for this initiative," says Mark Lloyd, PhD, EVP and Founder of Inspirata.

"We understand the need to allow as many pathology departments as possible to make flexible arrangements for their staff. We are proud to support this initiative by offering our RUO, WSI scanners, NanoZoomer," states Scott Blakely, Business Development Manager of Hamamatsu.

Additionally, industry thought leader and KiKo founder, Dr. Jonhan Ho, joins the initiative adding, "Digital pathology gives us the flexibility to serve our patients from anywhere instead of being hamstrung by having to be where our slides are."
