22, 2012) Leica Biosystems,
provider of world-leading Total Digital Pathology solutions, introduces two new
product offerings to their portfolio. Digital Pathology use cases are
multifaceted and these new solutions provide direct support for two of the
fastest growing applications of this emerging technology. A fully integrated
scanner with a web-enabled management system offers a straightforward solution
for entry level users, while the scalable, multi-site PACS is a comprehensive
option for multi-site networks.
Digital Image Hub (DIH) Enterprise provides an
optimized PACS environment to support clinical and pharmaceutical Digital Pathology
networks where scanners reside at multiple distributed physical locations. With
on-demand access, DIH Enterprise provides the benefit of viewing and searching
of images concurrently from multiple different sites through a single database.
This eliminates unnecessary transfer of large files over networks, facilitating
real-time access to content anywhere on your collaborative network.
Compatible with multiple whole slide file formats
and the new DICOM 145 Digital Pathology image standard, DIH Enterprise provides
a flexible platform to network multiple sites, which may be utilizing slide
scanners from different vendors. Including comprehensive inbuilt security, with
powerful yet uncomplicated user management, HIPAA technical controls and slide
anonymization of images for external users, DIH Enterprise is a scalable and
robust choice for Digital Pathology networks. Advanced capabilities for
LIS/LIMS integration ensure the system fits into any current workflow, while
best-in-class security including on-server support for PKI encrypted images
facilitates on-premise or cloud deployment.
Arnd Kaldowski, President of Leica
Biosystems stated, “Leica Biosystems continues
to break new ground in Digital Pathology. By offering a secure, scalable,
distributed Digital Pathology PACS, we enable our customers to embrace the
power and reliability of enterprise quality technology. Through flexible
workflows and integration potential, we deliver tailored Digital Pathology
solutions in an efficient, optimal and ergonomic manner.”
