Generating Exceptional Slides
Title: Generating Flawless Slides for Digital Pathology
Duration: 1 hour
Available On Demand
Having trouble with your slides? Spending too much time on staining and preparation? We have a solution to help you save time and get the slides you want. With Digital Pathology growing in research, clinical and pharma labs there has been a need for education on how to prep so that you can achieve exceptional scans.
Why is Digital Pathology important?
Digital pathology is a sub-field of pathology that focuses on data management based on information generated from digitized specimen slides. Glass slides are converted into digital slides that can be viewed, managed, shared and analyzed on a computer monitor. The conversion to digital pathology requires careful preparation of the pre-analytical processes.
Tissue preparation, embedding, sectioning and staining must be optimal in order to achieve high quality scans. High quality images can be only generated from optimized Digital Ready Slides.
In the webinar you will learn:
- Describe the key characteristics of Digital Ready Slides
- Demonstrate the impact of tissue preparation steps on scan quality
- Slide inspection, scanning and quality control
