microDimensions Debuts Free Whole Slide Viewer Zoom

| March 16, 2015

logo_microdimensionsMunich, 16 March 2015 — microDimensions, global provider of state-of-the-art digital pathology software, today released Zoom, the fastest, most versatile, and free of charge viewer for a plethora of whole slide image file formats.

microDimensions Zoom can display an unlimited number of channels of 8 bit and 16 bit data, no matter whether they were acquired by brightfield, electron microscope, fluorescence, or laser scanning systems. The software supports all major whole slide image formats from 3DHISTECH, Aperio, Hamamatsu, Huron, Leica, Nikon, Zeiss, and other widely-used (.ims, .jpeg, .mha, .nii, .tiff) file formats.

“Our digital pathology viewer Zoom is a lightweight piece of software to easily and quickly view, share, and discuss your cases”, said Dr. Martin Groher, CEO of microDimensions. “Even if you have multiple scanners or systems all with proprietary formats, Zoom will be at your fingertips, ready to visualize all of them at maximum speed.”

microDimensions Zoom boils down to what a digital pathology viewer is meant for:

  • Visualization of whole slide images and confocal stacks
  • Smooth panning, zooming, and scrolling of very large 2D and 3D images, also over an internal network
  • Simple adjustment of rendering settings (brightness, contrast, gamma) and turning on/off of individual channels
