Digital Pathology

Ex vivo imaging.
Rapid on-site evaluation workflow.
In just 5 minutes.

Your laboratory on a cart – with the VivaScope 2500 ex vivo microscope



The VivaScope 2500 is suitable for intraoperative assessment of tumor margins and immediate examination of biopsies. Surgical workflows and patient management can thus be significantly improved. The acquired images show subcellular details of the examined tissue and provide information similar to H&E staining.

The VivaScope 2500 ex vivo technology offers H&E-like images, generated from two components. Two lasers of different wavelengths create two distinct images, a fluorescence image and a reflectance image. Both signals are scanned simultaneously and are used to create pseudo-colored images. The device’s software uses an algorithm to translate the acquired image information into colors that resemble H&E. It’s not just digital pathology. Because you receive H&E like images during ongoing surgery, we call it “instant digital pathology”.

Full Preservation

The VivaScope 2500 revolutionizes the evaluation of cytological and microhistological specimens. The diagnostic and adequacy assessment of these samples can be rapidly performed while maintaining the integrity of the specimen for subsequent histological, immunohistochemical and molecular analysis.

Evaluation of tumor margins

The VivaScope 2500 allows you to assess tumor margins intraoperatively. The ex vivo technology offers many advantages over frozen section analysis for microscopically controlled surgery. The time needed to complete a surgery can be reduced significantly. Integrated into a surgical workflow, VivaScope scans provide information comparable to H&E images derived from FFPE or frozen sections.

Your benefits:

✔  No laboratory required
✔ Remote evaluation
✔ Advanced patient care
✔ Improved patient turnaround time
