Leica Biosystems Introduces the Aperio LV1 - Live View, Remote, Digital Pathology System for Research Use Only

VISTA, CA - Leica Biosystems announces the new Aperio LV1 digital pathology system for telepathology, providing rapid remote access for real-time review of glass slides for research use only applications.

With 4-slide capacity and complete robotic control, the Aperio LV1 enables remote users to access live slides in less than 15 seconds and navigate like a conventional microscope.  Users can securely access the system and take full control to change magnification, move in x, y or z planes or switch between slides.  The almost instantaneous sharing of slides facilitates access to remote pathologists, participating in projects, for collaborative discussions and expert input, eliminating the time delays and cost associated with shipping slides.  In addition, the easy-to-use interface means users can view up to 16 simultaneous fields of view, at different magnifications, for side-by-side comparison of specimens.

"Remote sharing of glass slides for expert subspecialist input is a growing need in multi-research pathology studies," said Puneet Sarin, Leica Biosystems vice president and general manager, Pathology Imaging. "The Aperio LV1 is an affordable solution, providing research users with the ability to have slide review and discussions in real-time." 

With a compact design and small footprint, the Aperio LV1 fits easily into limited laboratory space. Minimal IT requirements enable the Aperio LV1 to be installed by the user in minutes.  Further functionality enables the system to be used as a low-volume whole slide scanner and is fully compatible with Aperio eSlide Manager and Aperio ImageScope, the world's most widely used digital pathology viewer. 

To see the new Aperio LV1 research solution, join us at CAP'15 in Nashville, TN from October 4-7 at booth #320 or at Pathology Visions in Boston, MA from October 11-13 at booth #211. Further information can be found at
