Ocus - How To Scan

Personal Digital Microscope

View, digitize, record and file microscope slides in-house, at your desk or anywhere. The Grundium Ocus automatically stitches your scanned images and saves them on the 500 Gb hard drive or swiftly exports them to your cloud storage. Slides can also be viewed in live mode on a larger screen. Specimens can also be viewed in Z-Direction to focus on the essential layer.

Digital pathology is enabled by Whole Slide Imaging (WSI), which means converting traditional glass slides into high resolution digital slides pre-screened by artificial intelligence tools, which can be reviewed on a computer monitor, managed and analysed in different layers, providing a more effective way for professionals to do their work than traditional microscopes or shared in real-time with colleagues all over the world.

Ocus has what it takes to be on every pathologist's desk as a personal scanner.


Portable & Wireless

The Grundium Ocus, unlike other slide scanners which are tied to a set location, is a compact size mobile and portable scanner weighing only 3.5kgs, which travels anywhere in its own case small enough for aircraft cabins and doesn't require a perfectly level desk to stand on. It isn't sensitive to vibration like its over-sized competition.

The Grundium Ocus works like a webserver. It has Multiple connectivity options for local and remote usage. It can be connected locally to a laptop, tablet or phone. It also has independent Wi-Fi and Ethernet support to enable direct internet connection, cloud support and remote access. A pathologist logs in to the Ocus software in their browser where they can remotely operate the scanner to look at any part of the slide. The browser-based software has no compatibility issues and can be implemented in any system. The Remote Live View feature also lends itself to making rapid onsite evaluation. A second opinion is now mere minutes away.

Wireless connectivity means telepathology is now possible practically anywhere on the planet.



The Grundium Ocus makes scanning, sharing and live viewing whole slide images with peers next door or on other side of the world easy and fast. There is no need to prepare samples for shipping, or budgeting time for the availability of a specialist at the microscope when the samples arrive. Thus, it makes the physical slide transfers between the clinic and the lab, a thing of the past.

It's WSI gives any hospital the capacity to scan slides in-house. Digital slides, coupled with other powerful diagnostic tools and instant access to the pool of experts around the world means far faster cycles with professional analysis and second opinion which in turn will advance the current level of medicine and lead to more accurate diagnosis.
