Dark Report: More Clinical Pathology Laboratories are Purchasing Digital Pathology Systems

| February 7, 2011

According to the Dark Daily, acquisition of digital pathology technologies still remains in earliest stages:

"Anatomic pathology laboratories continue to purchase and deploy digital pathology systems at a brisk rate. It is confirmation that ever more pathologists are ready to adopt and use digital pathology systems."

The story goes on to say:

"It should be pointed out that, at this time, total worldwide sales of digital pathology systems do not exceed much more than 1,000 to 1,500 systems, exclusive of digital slide scanners. This number represents only a small percentage of the developed world’s clinical pathology laboratories. But the number is a useful benchmark that pathologists can use to track the adoption of digital pathology."
