Instant Digital Pathology – The VivaScope 2500-G4 is a confocal laser scanning microscope designed specifically for the analysis of diagnostic biopsies and the assessment of tumour margins during surgery. Tissue can be examined immediately after an excision without lengthy procedures. This allows for the direct assessment of tissue right in the operating room.
Tissue preparation and staining take less than a minute: for instance, a tissue sample of 1 cm x 1 cm can be stained, scanned and displayed in less than 4 minutes.
Assessment of tumour margins in conventional histology is typically a long process that requires specialised technicians, adequate facilities to perform histological sections, equipment, and material. Waiting for results often means that valuable time is lost.
The VivaScope 2500-G4 offers an innovative alternative that saves time, money and material.
