PathoScan project: Automated digitization in routine pathology

Goal: Digital and automated microscopy workflow including pre-scan quality control using an overview camera

Partner: PreciPoint GmbH, University of Regensburg, Technical University of Munich TUM, HTI bio-X GmbH

             

Current Status:

  • Systematic collection and prioritization of possible error artifacts that can occur during sample preparation
  • Collection and digitization of problematic slides

Database: Slides are currently being collected in Regensburg and Munich and then digitized. Using the database, the scientists at Fraunhofer IIS will develop and validate the image analysis algorithms.

Our Solution:

  • Coloring (HTI Smart Automation) and digitization (PreciPoint) using a fully automated digitization workflow
  • Automatic image analysis using the overview camera to detect various quality problems such as protruding cover glasses, air bubbles, foreign particles, folds, cracks
  • Detection of over / under-staining or faulty staining by objective quantification of the coloring
  • Cost and time efficient quality assurance procedures
