Trusted by hospitals and CROs for frozen sections & online peer-review, Augmentiqs enables real-time sharing of the microscope. Without the need for scanning, an unlimited number of remote viewers can instantly collaborate, annotate and save images.
ARM Microscopy Study for Ki-67 Scoring
The First-of-its-Kind ARM Microscopy Study for Ki-67 Scoring with Augmentiqs was Conducted at UPMC by Dr. Liron Pantanowitz and published in the May 2020 Journal of Cancer Cytopathology.
Use of Telepathology for Frozen Sections at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital
“Augmentiqs is an affordable, secure product that leverages existing equipment already in the lab and enables close collaboration and interaction among remote users. It offers excellent image quality, fast image transmission, new innovative features such as augmented reality of the microscope eyepiece, annotation sharing in real-time, and it is only going to get better.”
Use of Telepathology for Pre-Clinical Studies, and the Return on Investment
By quantifying all use of the Augmentiqs system during the study period, CRL found it had achieved annualized cost-savings of $17,640, an amount that put full ROI well within the first year of purchase. Instant communication, ability to capture high-resolution images and integrated annotation software all contributed to improving the workflow efficiency.
The Augmentiqs platform has an Open API, affording multi-directional communication and integration with any digital system/software. This multi-directionality feature allows for the Augmentiqs system to be highly interoperable with other digital microscopy technologies within the microscope itself.

As many clients are not pathologists, there is a need for them to see and be guided across the image while hearing the explanation and criteria applied during the evaluation using pathology focused annotation tools and a tailored user interface. Of particular importance, Augmentiqs provides uncompromised image quality even at limited internet connection bandwidths.
GLP STUDY USE STATEMENT
The use of the Augmentiqs system for live histopathology sessions by the SP and PRP serves for illustrative purposes, without any QA audit or regulatory issues. Digital images may be taken for illustrative purposes (Tuomari et. al, 2007). These images are not used for data generation or interpretation, and will not be archived or included in the final report.
The use of Augmentiqs real-time telepathology system enables pathologists to get the most accurate pathology data in an efficient and cost-effective way. Augmentiqs is also ideal for instant consultation and peer review, facilitating good science and economic benefits by enabling more timely and informed clinical decisions.

Utilizing Novel Telepathology System in Preclinical Studies and Peer Review
In conclusion, MIT telepathology systems enables cost-effective and practical collaboration in biomedical research and preclinical studies without necessitating travel of pathology experts or extensive shipping of slides. It can have a positive impact on commercial activities of study sponsors by facilitating informed decision making relating to study results in a shorter period of time. In addition, MIT facilitates good science by supporting informal and formal consultation and knowledge sharing within the framework of existing best practices for toxicology sciences.

New Technologies: Real-time Telepathology Systems—Novel Cost-effective Tools for Real-time Consultation and Data Sharing
The availability of relatively inexpensive microscope-integrated telepathology systems now permits a
much more feasible, cost-effective, and practical use of telepathology in biomedical research and preclinical studies as an alternative to travel of pathology experts or shipping slides. It can facilitate more informed decision-making relating to study results and strategic business steps in a shorter period of time.Link to SagePubDirect Download
