The Most Cost Effective Telepathology System
The easiest to use is also the most cost-effective
Augmentiqs retrofits the pathologists existing microscope, opening up multi-directional communication with the pathologist’s PC and Internet. By utilizing the lab’s existing infrastructure, Augmentiqs allows the pathologist to collaborate directly from their desk, saving costs while vastly improving workflow efficiency.
Augmentiqs is easily integrated within the accessory port of the microscope, saving the expense of C-mounts & trinocular heads.
And as Augmentiqs does not scan the slide, but rather transfers only the region of interest as seen within the microscope eyepiece, the resulting low-data footprint with industry-standard security protocols allows for immediate and real-time image transfer without any IT worries or server configuration.
Augmentiqs enables real-time telepathology from the existing microscope.
- Utilize your lab’s existing capital equipment with no need for C-mount, trinocular head, or complex integration
- Perform telepathology from the pathologist’s desk
- Combined hardware/software piece provides entire digital solution
- Fits existing IT infrastructure with low bandwidth requirement
TELEPATHOLOGY CASE STUDY
COST EFFECTIVE TECHNOLOGY
- 24.5 direct work hours saved
- 30 cycle days reduced
- $750 saved in shipping costs
- $750 saved in obtaining publication grade images
CHARLES RIVER LABORATORIES conducted an 8-month Return on Investment (ROI) pilot study on the use of Augmentiqs for real-time telepathology. The study looked at savings in pathologist work hours, cycle time and logistic expenses.
Over the course of the study period, Augmentiqs was utilized by the remote CRL pathologists for numerous reasons including i) internal CRL telepathology consultation between the remote and on-site pathologists, ii) external client telepathology consultation, iii) online peer-review with external clients, and iv) capturing publication-grade images.
TOTAL ANNUALIZED SAVINGS – $17,640
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 RETURN ON INVESTMENT WELL WITHIN THE FIRST YEAR OF PURCHASE.
INSTANT COMMUNICATION, ABILITY TO CAPTURE HIGH-RESOLUTION IMAGES AND INTEGRATED ANNOTATION SOFTWARE ALL CONTRIBUTED TO IMPROVING WORKFLOW EFFICIENCY.
