E-slide Manager Update
We have recently updated our E-Slide Manager software to the newest version (12.4). Everyone should still have access to all of their slides and image analysis macro's. One issue that we have noticed is that when user open an image on a Mac or PC that does not have Image Scope installed they sometimes get an error message or download message. For computers that do not have image scope installed you can force slides to open under a new browser tab via either the old webscope viewer or new web viewer. To do this hold down the "A" key (webscope) or "W" key (web viewer) on your keyboard while clicking on the slide. So far this workaround has worked for all of our users. We also received an updated tech note from Leica regarding supported browser versions here. Let us know if you see any other unexpected errors and we will follow up with Leica.

Visiopharm Image Analysis
We now have a single seat license for the Visiopharm Oncotopix image analysis suite. We will continue to support the Aperio image analysis tools for cell counting and area quantification. The Visiopharm suite will give us added functionality including CISH/FISH analysis (spot counting per cell), pancrease islet quantification, lipid vacuole quantification, neurite lengh measurments, etc. The tissue align tool can be used to overlay serial sections for virtual double labeling. The app authoring tool allows us to further customize algorithms based on researchers needs and answer more specific research questions. Contact us for more information.
