Innovative Digital Imaging Systems Helping In-Depth Analysis

Scientists at the University of Pittsburgh, Department of Transplant Pathology, are using modern digital imaging systems to enhance their research into the chronic rejection in solid organ transplantation  and  immunobiological mechanisms of tolerance.
ZEISS Axio Scan.Z1, an automated microscope, is a pivotal innovative tool developed by Carl Zeiss Microscopy. This tool allows researchers to convert cytologic specimens and fixed tissue sections using bright-field and fluorescence illumination into digital image files that can be analyzed on a computer screen instead of being tethered to the microscope. (It is the technical sentence)

This form of study gives researchers “next generation pathology” capabilities, including functionality to compare images side by side, comparison, software algorithms for counting, quantification of specific tissue area,analysis etc to increase  the amount and type of data that can be collected from a tissue biopsy.
“ZEISS does not stop at building the tool; …
