Use our live telemicroscopy systems for ROSE, remote examinations, tumor board sharing, frozen sections, MOHS, and more.
Live telemicroscopy, or live telepathology, allows pathologists to perform a comprehensive, traditional microscopic evaluation of the original glass slide specimen, making their expertise instantaneously available anytime, anywhere.
Unlike in digital pathology*, in live telemicroscopy, a digitized whole-slide image is not created. Instead, a pathologist uses live video streaming and a remotely controlled microscope to instantaneously, in real-time, control everything they want to see on the original glass slide, not an interpolated image.
From a regulatory perspective, any technology that interpolates or renders an image of the glass slide can largely only be used in research settings. Live telemicroscopy technology that uses a truly live-feed of the original glass slide can be used in clinical applications such as remote on-site evaluation of adequacy (ROSE) in cytology applications, frozen sections, tumor board sharing, MOHS procedures, and remote examinations. Because live telemicroscopy delivers the versatility of the traditional microscope, it is also perfect for difficult or challenging samples.
We provide the L5 and L5-20 systems, Class I, remote robotic microscopes dedicated to telemicroscopy. Our SL5 system is dual-mode, and includes the robotic microscope of the L5 for live telemicroscopy applications as well as a whole-slide scanner for digital pathology applications.
See how the Live mode of the SL5 system allows pathologists to evaluate glass slides from anywhere in the world.
