That was fast R&D for GE

| September 2, 2008

On the heels of the annoucement of formation of Omnyx, I came across a piece commenting on the Chicago Tribune story I posted about "Digital Imaging see as pathology lab cure?".  What I did not appreciate is that the article on the Tribune makes mention that GE engineers has cut the time to scan a slide from 10 minutes to 1/2 a minute.  As we know, scan times, storage requirements and costs to do are a function of Moore’s Law.  Other vendors in this space have had similar results. 

Sub one-minute scan times have also been claimed by other vendors without any post-acquisition processing additional time required. 

30 seconds sounds great and even realistic at this point.  Imagine scan times of less….
