Leica has released a digital slide viewing and educational pathology app for the iPhone and iPad. As a practical lab tool, you can browse and view slides taken on the Leica SCN400 scanner. While you’re waiting for the scans to complete, the app provides educational content with example imagery from respected sources.
Users who install the application can browse folders of images from each of the External Quality Assessment (EQA) programs, select individual cases and view, zoom and navigate around the slides. Each case includes expert pathologist assessments, which can be viewed with the slides, giving increased insight into the samples. They can also see a sample set of Leica Biosystems’ Novocastra antibody range.
Existing users of Leica Microsystems’ Digital Pathology management solution, SlidePath Digital Image Hub (DIH), who usually access their system via a standard internet browser, can now securely connect to their own DIH library of images and review them through the application.
