Partnership strengthens digital pathology offerings nationwide
March 3, 2020 (Carlsbad, CA) – Mikroscan Technologies, innovators and manufacturers of live robotic microscopy and whole-slide imaging (WSI) systems, announces that it has entered into a non-exclusive distribution agreement with Inspirata Inc., a leading provider of digital pathology and cancer informatics solutions.
Commencing in March 2020, Inspirata will market and distribute Mikroscan’s digital pathology and telemicroscopy systems—the SL5 Dual-Mode Real-Time Telemicroscopy and Digital Pathology system and the L5 Real-Time Telemicroscopy system—throughout the United States.
The partnership expands Inspirata’s digital pathology solution, which features the powerful, open-architecture Dynamyx case management platform, and allows a broader set of users to experience Mikroscan’s growing portfolio. Allowing pathologists to efficiently and accurately evaluate slides remotely, the companies’ offerings hasten case turnaround time and enhance care.
“We are excited to be working with Inspirata and ultimately supporting their mission to provide cancer informatics that drive informed decisions,” said Martin Stuart, Ph.D., President and CEO of Mikroscan. “Our systems offer the highest quality optics for slide scanning and live, remote viewing, which greatly enhances frozen section, fine needle aspirate, and dermatopathology evaluation, providing excellent decision support for diagnoses.”
Mikroscan’s systems will be paired with Inspirata’s Dynamyx case management software and will be sold nationwide to institutions, hospitals, and laboratories in need of oncology informatics. Both the Mikroscan systems and Inspirata offerings are vendor-agnostic, which facilitates system interoperability within an organization.
“We believe that Mikroscan’s flexible systems are a great complement to our Dynamyx Digital Pathology platform,” said Mark Lloyd, Inspirata’s Executive Vice President and Founder. “Combining our industry-leading, comprehensive digital pathology solution with Mikroscan’s low-cost, high-quality systems will lower the barriers to entry for organizations looking to add more digital aspects to their workflows in a cost-effective way.”
