Solution for modern pathology and cancer research
Laser microdissection plays an important role in modern pathology and cancer research. Now it is possible to combine the advantages of digital and molecular pathology. In collaboration with 3DHistech MMI has established the entire process from digital slide scanning to remote laser microdissection via internet based cloud technology. Transfer of the “cutting map” directly to the MMI CellCut facilitates cell isolation and collection following remote digital diagnosis.
1. Scan your slides
Direct scanning to the CaseCenter, for example with the Pannoramic MIDI from 3DHistech, a 12-slide digital slide scanner which combines brightfield and fluorescence scanning in one and delivers superb image quality.
2. Share your digital slides
Slides are stored in the CaseCenter, a web based slide and case database with HIS/LIS integration possibility, and can now be shared with the remote specialist.
3. Select cells or group of cells
The areas of interest can be found auto-matically with the image analysis software, a multi-purpose solution which runs on local and remote slides.The annotations on the digital slide serve as a cutting map for the MMI CellCut.
4. Automatic cell isolation
The MMI CellCut precisely cuts and isolates the cells on the imported cutting map and transfers them to the PCR tube for downstream analysis.
