Olympus has introduced the updated dotSlide digital virtual microscopy system, which scans entire slides at high resolution and fidelity, making them accessible and fully navigable anywhere on the globe.

The three available models (dotSlide MD, manual version; dotSlide SL, fully automated version, with slide loader; and dotSlide TMA, with tissue microarray module) enable users to examine the virtual slide as if they were viewing the original on a microscope.

The dotSlide is a system designed for all aspects of pathology and research, meaning that users can review cases without being near a microscope. This can also enable second opinions and remote consults, as well as consistent training and discussion. The technology can also ensure that the dotSlide range provides high throughput and high content capabilities for both pathology and research applications.

All dotSlide models use the advanced Olympus BX51 microscope, which offers extraordinary optical performance. With the standard system, dotSlide MD, slides and meta-data are loaded manually and the virtual file created automatically based on the users preferences.

With the dotSlide SL, slides are automatically loaded from the slide loader which holds up to 50 slides in 5 trays. The system always knows the exact position of each slide within the trays. A robotic arm places the slides onto the stage holder and the integrated barcode scanner ensures that any bar-coded meta-data are automatically loaded and linked with the resultant virtual image.
