  • Wednesday, August 30, 2023

The adoption of digital pathology is a multifaceted project involving many stakeholders across the pathology department. The impact on the laboratory is not isolated to simply installing a scanner but rather affects the whole workflow to generate optimized Digital Ready Slides.

Standardization of histological slide preparation requires focusing on optimizing individual workflow steps and a holistic overview of the complete process from sample acquisition right through to diagnosis.

Knowing this in advance and taking appropriate steps to effectively support change management can promote engagement and pave a path to success.

Register for this webinar to gain insight into the laboratory considerations for the adoption of digital pathology, the key attributes of digital ready slides and the impact of tissue preparation steps on scan quality. Attendees will be introduced to the appropriate steps to support change management to help promote engagement and a path to success.
