Standard tissue removal

Step 1: Tissue Removal

The tissue is processed directly after excision without fixation.

Placing tissue into the VivaScope 2500 for further scans using confocal microscopy

Step 2: Staining Procedure

The specimen is then quickly and easily stained with a fluorescent dye and mounted on a glass slide.

Confocal scanning process with the VivaScope 2500

Step 3: Tissue Mounting

The glass slide is ­subsequently inserted into the VivaScope 2500.

Confocal Imaging with the VivaScope 2500 technology using confocal microscopy

Step 4: Confocal Imaging

The VivaScope 2500 rapidly scans the excised tissue and reveals the cellular

ex vivo tissue preservation (with the VivaScope 2500 using confocal microscopy)

Step 5: Evaluation & Telemedicine

During the surgical intervention, the specimens can be evaluated microscopically and the procedure adaptedaccordingly.

Preservation with Confocal Microscopy for further analysis.

Full preservation

The examined tissue remains unharmed by the ­procedure and can be ­processed for ­histopathological and ­integrative analysis later on.

✔ molecular analysis ✔ IHC
✔ H&E staining ✔ formalin fixation
