High Throughput

High Throughput, also called Fast Routine Scanning, or Mass Scan.

You are here:


  • Scan under daily-use conditions.
  • Scan 50 glass slides in a routine procedure. No interaction or reloading of the scanner will be allowed.
  • Glass slides from 10 pathology departments are mixed randomly.


  • Measurement of scanner preparation time.
  • Measurement of scanning time and image quality.
  • Measurement of post processing time (availability for the user).

  • 35 biopsies and 15 specimen of surgical material of different origin, HE stains.
  • A technician is allowed to prepare the scanner settings. Preparation and scanning time will be measured separately.
  • Glass slides are randomly selected from the daily workload of different pathology institutions. Several comparable sets of mixed slides will be provided.
  • Regions are not marked on the slides. All relevant particles have to be found automatically.

Evaluation Criteria

  • Time needed, including preparation, scanning and data handling
  • No-reference focus assessment using automatic image analysis
  • Completeness of the digitized tissue area
