Real Time Telepathology

Augmentiqs provides a combined hardware & software solution for real time telepathology from the existing microscope.

Augmentiqs is an easily integrated and highly cost-efficient solution for real time telepathology from the existing microscope. Augmentiqs includes both the microscope camera and telepathology software, enabling pathologists to instantly share a live image from the existing microscope with colleagues across the globe – in a single, easy to use package.

By focusing on the live region of interest in the microscope without having to scan a digital slide, Augmentiqs is able to utilize a low-data transfer approach while acting as a virtual double-headed microscope. 

Augmentiqs telepathology is used by labs for frozen sections, online peer review and other clinical & preclinical applications.

Advantages of Augmentiqs Telepathology

Your Microscope is Your Workstation

Augmentiqs is an electro-optical module that is placed into the existing light microscope. By operating within the microscope, Augmentiqs is a plug&play telepathology solution that brings immediate workflow efficiencies, clinical enhancement and cost-savings.

The Augmentiqs hardware is a digital pathology & telepathology platform that contains a high-resolution microscope camera. The microscope camera is uniquely positioned under the microscope eyepiece to be available for image capture at any time without beam splitter adjustment. Without any need for C-mounts or trinocular lens, the camera captures a field of view similar in proportions to the ocular view of the microscope.

The Augmentiqs telepathology software is operated from the user’s PC. The unique communication protocol is designed specifically for the needs of pathologists, ensuring all remote viewers receive a lossless compression, digital pathology-grade image on their computer screen – regardless of individual bandwidth.

The platform further enhances efficiency by displaying annotations, morphometrics, quantitative toolsets or AI directly on the image. An optional feature unique to Augmentiqs is augmented reality of the optical plane & automatic detection and calibration of microscope stage activity such as objective magnification.

This combined approach for real-time telepathology takes into account all the optical and software needs for successful and effective consultations.

Augmentiqs provides pathologists a complete solution for real-time collaboration, in addition to supporting the technological needs of the routine pathology workflow.

Augmentiqs is a combined hardware and software telepathology solution that includes a high resolution microscope camera and software designed for the needs of the fast-paced and cost-conscious pathology lab.

The Augmentiqs telepathology camera enhances pathology consultation and workflow by allowing pathologists and remote viewers to annotate and save images directly to their PC. The saved images from the microscope can be publication-grade TIFF or PNG, and include the annotations and morphometric calibrations embedded inside.

By including hardware & software components within a single package, Augmentiqs is the highest quality solution for real-time microscope sharing, and makes for the most productive use of pathologist time.
