Augmentiqs is a combined hardware and software solution that enables multi-directional communication between microscope and PC. The hardware component installed on the existing microscope acts as a platform for digital imaging, digital overlay (augmented reality) and tracking of microscope stage activity. The high-resolution digital pathology camera obtains a Field of View (FOV) output that is close to a 1:1 view of the eyepiece (depending on the microscope and objective used).

The telepathology component of Augmentiqs, allows any user using the Augmentiqs system can share their FOV (Includes all annotations, cell counts, and clinical information seen through the eyepiece) with any other user that has the Augmentiqs Viewer software downloaded on their computer. Both parties involved have the capabilities to edit and use the tools included in the overlay, all with no image quality lost and in real-time.

The pathology imaging and telepathology applications found in Augmentiqs Augmentiqs are ideal for the Israel healthcare system, that is actively looking for low-cost and easy to integrate technologies for improving health.
