Pathology Scanner Second Generation SG20

Philips digital pathology logo

It’s about getting answers quickly. Meet the first fully automated pathology scanner* designed to accommodate laboratories with low volume spoke labs (within a network) or small independent labs. With a high first time right, medium throughput and load and walk away scanning, the SG20 enables you to digitize your histology samples and obtain high quality clinical diagnostic images for routine use and integrated pathology networks.

Product Description

High quality images

Our clinically validated scanner delivers high quality images by using a standardized and fully automated scanning process. Each slide is scanned at the equivalence of 40 times magnification (0.25 um/pixel). This results in sharp high resolution images which are vital for digitizing the primary diagnostic workflow and a key enabler for the use of image analysis algorithms.

Using the Ultra Fast Scanner requires the simple ‘load and walk away’ operation. Anyone in the lab can load slides into the scanner and then the digitization process will proceed automatically. This automated processing is supported by numerous algorithms for detection of tissue, barcode, and coverslip, as well as continuous auto-focusing algorithms used during scanning.

High throughput

One Ultra Fast Scanner can scan up to 60 slides per hour for a slide with 15x15mm tissue size. Each scanner has a slide capacity of 300 slides that can be continuously loaded, truly enabling fully automated nonstop scanning. Even if an error is detected it will indicate this to the user but continue scanning the next available slide, enabling high throughput digitization.

Multi-site harmonization and security

 

The multi-site setup is a common approach to creating a virtual network made up of multiple laboratories, allowing you to connect your team with a scalable solution and sharing histology data across an organization. Multiple sites can access each other’s images and exchange cases which enables workload balancing across locations. This enhances your ability to quickly reach specialists and sub-specialists for remote consultations.
