Digital slide scanner 3DHISTECH PANNORAMIC 250 Flash was installed in the cancer center in Khabarovsk

3DHISTECH PANNORAMIC 250 Flash digital scanning microscope was installed at the Regional Clinical Center of Oncology in Khabarovsk. It will allow doctors to be far more precise in diagnosing oncological diseases, to cope with tasks of the highest complexity and remotely discuss difficult cases with colleagues from all over the world.
3DHISTECH PANNORAMIC 250 Flash is a versatile solution for brightfield and fluorescent specimen scanning. It supports fast and FISH scanning technologies, can load up to 250 slides, and provides high image quality with minimized specimen bleaching.

A digital scanning microscope is essential to optimize performance in clinical morphology. These specialists directly examine biological materials — tissue fragments from patients taken for analysis, prepared in a certain way, dyed and placed on a microscope slide. Then a doctor examines these biomaterials under a microscope on a monitor and makes a conclusion, after which the treatment is determined.

Evgeny Shapiro, Chief Medical Officer of the Regional Oncology Center:
This image is instantly posted on the web, and we can consult with other clinics and specialists around the world almost immediately. This equipment allows us to switch to artificial intelligence technologies, which make it possible to diagnose each patient’s cancer problems faster and more clearly.

The use of a digital scanning microscope makes the diagnosis process much more accurate. Under the microscope, the specimen is scanned in its entirety: this minimizes the influence of the “human factor”, when the doctor can choose the wrong area of the specimen when examining it in the traditional way.


Mikhail Spiridonov, Head of Digital Microscopy and Information Systems Department, ZEISS Russia & CIS:
Traditional microscopes have been replaced by new, scanning ones. Now a doctor does not need to peer into the biomaterial of interest for hours: instead, the machine itself scans the object being studied and displays its image on the monitor. In addition to the obvious convenience for the doctor, this method allows one to reduce the space that could be physically occupied by the archive with specimens, and to make their storage indefinite.
