Huron Technologies Receives Frost & Sullivan’s 2013 North America Product Differentiation Excellence Award in Digital Pathology Slide Scanners

| July 22, 2013

Had a chance to take a look at Huron Technologies while attending the recent Canadian Association of Pathologists (CAP-ACP) last month in Quebec. Hard to argue with endorsement from Frost and Sullivan for Huron Technologies’s ability to scan up to 300 slides in under 30 seconds each as the world’s fastest brightfield whole slide imager.  This recognition comes on the heels of an award last October for world’s best fluorescence whole slide scanner for image quality at both 20x and 40x resolution

Waterloo, ON, Canada – July 22, 2013 – Huron Technologies, a world leader in developing Whole Slide Imaging (WSI) solutions for digital pathology, is proud to announce that it has been awarded the prestigious Frost & Sullivan 2013 Growth, Innovation and Leadership Award for Product Differentiation Excellence in Digital Pathology Slide Scanners. 

Frost & Sullivan recognized several key differentiating factors in Huron Technologies’ TISSUEscope™ digital slide scanners: unique features and functionality, quality, customization, matched to target market needs, brand perception and product uniqueness. Frost & Sullivan further recognized the TISSUEscope™ 4000 as the most versatile digital pathology platform on the market, providing speed, flexibility and unmatched image quality at an affordable price. 

The TISSUEscope™ 4000 has already won two first prizes at the 2012 International Scanner Contest and was recognized as the world’s best fluorescence whole slide scanner for image quality at both 20x and 40x resolution. 

Reaffirming and reinforcing Huron Technologies’ prominence as a global leader in creating digital pathology solutions, this award closely follows Huron Technologies’ recent launch of the TISSUEscopeT™ HS digital slide scanner, the world’s fastest brightfield whole slide imager. The TISSUEscope™ HS has been designed with pathologists to integrate into real-world laboratory workflows and can image up to 300 slides automatically in less than 30 seconds per slide. 

Dr. Réda Fayek, CEO of Huron Technologies, emphasized the importance of this award: “Frost & Sullivan recognizes industry leaders for providing unique value to their customers. It’s a privilege and honor for Huron Technologies’ creative design team to be recognized for product differentiation excellence by Frost & Sullivan. We believe in providing high-performance, flexible solutions that exceed our customer’s expectations. We thank the Frost & Sullivan team for this award and we will continue to deliver world-class instruments and service for the digital pathology market.”
