Pathology in India will take on an even more high tech role with the introduction of the new Roche Diagnostics integrated pathology system. The country’s first installation took place at Anand Diagnostic Laboratory, Bangalore.

The Roche Diagnostics platform, which includes the iScan Coreo scanner and the Virtuoso digital pathology software together represent a new way of working for pathologists in India. They are no longer tied to the microscope and the glass slide – a 200 year old practice.

Discussing the new technology at a meeting of pathologists in India, Guido Sander, Managing Director, Roche Diagnostics India said: “ From simply remotely viewing patient slides, to consulting specialists real time within India or even through other parts of the world – the applications of digital pathology are endless”

The scanner provides high speed slide scanning, improved image quality, and advanced slide handling. The scanner is packaged with advanced image viewing software offering pathologists the ability to view and annotate digital images of scanned slides.

Paired with the Virtuoso digital pathology software, iScan Coreo provides users with a complete digital pathology solution from image acquisition through customized reporting thus increasing operational efficiencies and productivity in the lab.

 Dr. Sujay Prasad Director, Anand Diagnostic Laboratory shared his vision on Digital Pathology while addressing the meeting of Pathologists.  He said: “For us, Digitization is a tool for improving workflow efficiency in the Histopathology Laboratory, thus ensuring patient safety. Our priority is traceability and peace of mind.”

The introduction of the iScan Coreo and Virtuoso is a significant milestone for the practice of pathology in India. Digital pathology can increase diagnostic confidence, reduce subjectivity and ultimately improve patient care with consistent and reproducible results. This latest advancement will transform the practice and take pathology beyond traditional microscope applications.
