Slight delays with histo possible

For some time now we have been using digital pathology across our network for histopathology. Digital pathology involves converting stained histology sections on glass slides to digital pathology slides using digital scanners. A digital slide image is generated which allows for high resolution viewing, interpretation and image analysis of digital pathology slides.

This week however, we have experienced a fault in the side scanner and are currently waiting on a new part from overseas. The ETA for arrival of the part in New Zealand is next week. In the mean time, we will be reverting to using our microscopes to review histology smears.

Consequently, you may notice a slight delay getting results back, until we are able to move back to the digital platform.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to call your local laboratory.
