OptraSCAN Launches Third Generation On-Demand Digital Pathology® System at USCAP 2018

today announced its third generation On-Demand Digital Pathology®
system for researchers and clinicians. The third generation OptraSCAN®
brightfield scanner
is now able to acquire a whole slide image from
a FFPE glass slide in under 60 seconds timeframe at the cost of a
traditional digital microscope.

CEO Abhi Gholap will be present at booth #722 at USCAP for meetings
and personal demonstrations of the On-Demand Digital Pathology suite of

Keeping true to its mission statement, OptraSCAN has been working to
make digital pathology affordable and accessible to all pathologists
worldwide. The third generation system, with faster scan times, will
provide technicians and physicians access to images quickly and help
keep their workflow moving at a steady pace. This next generation system
is being unveiled at $20,000 USD price and includes On-Demand
Digital Pathology solutions IMAGEPath® image management and
TELEPath™ telepathology (amongst others).

“Our goal at OptraSCAN has always been to build a solution for the
global pathology community that removes the bottleneck of price,” said
Founder and CEO Abhi Gholap. “With a system that offers very competitive
scan times and an affordable price tag, we look forward to helping
pathologists utilize downstream telepathology, image analysis and
computational pathology solutions that will ultimately enable better
patient care.”

Early this year OptraSCAN announced its mass validation and approval
from the Government of India for use of its digital pathology system in
research and medical settings. Going forward, OptraSCAN is in the
process of applying for a CE Mark for medical device clearance in the EU
