Leica Microsystems Wins European Scanner Contest

Slide Scanner Leica SCN400 Leica Microsystems‘ Slide Scanner Leica SCN400 and Autoloader Leica SL801 have come first in two categories of the first European Scanner Contest (ESC). The prizes were awarded in the "Scan Speed and Best-Focused Images" categories, each at 20x and 40x magnification. 

The jury was convinced by the digital pathology system by Leica Microsystems: Thanks to the patented "Dynamic Focus", the Slide Scanner Leica SCN400 produces virtual images of exceptional quality at unprecedented speed. Another product designed for high throughput in the pathology lab is the Autoloader Leica SL801, which is capable of scanning up to 384 samples at a time. "By winning first prize, Leica Microsystems has again asserted its market position. We will continue to play a key role in shaping the future of virtual microscopy and digital pathology," said Dr. Bodo Falke, Sales Manager Central Europe for Leica Microsystems, at the award presentation in Vilnius, which hosted the 10th European Congress on Telepathology and the 4th International Conference on Virtual Microscopy last week.

The European Scanner Contest was held within the framework of "Pathology Week", a joint event of the German Society of Pathology and the Association of German Pathologists. With this competition, the organizers have created the first opportunity to compare the speed and imaging quality of different scanners using identical samples. The contest is also intended to promote the development of virtual microscopy products.
