Philips’ Whole Slide Imaging System Wins FDA Approval

April 14, 2017

That FDA has granted de novo clearance for a Philips’ imaging system that allows pathologists to read and interpret tissue slides digitally, rather than directly from a microscope.

The IntelliSite Pathology Solution uses proprietary hardware and software to scan and digitize conventional surgical pathology glass slides prepared from biopsied tissue at resolutions equivalent to 400 times magnification.

The system enables pathologists to read tissue slides digitally in order to make diagnoses, rather than looking directly at a tissue sample mounted on a glass slide under a conventional light microscope.
