The COOLSCOPE VS lets users digitize entire glass slide specimens, or specific areas of interest, and then create a virtual slide with the quality and resolution similar to the original glass slide viewed on a microscope. The results are high-resolution diagnostic quality digital images viewable through a PC or standard web browser, anywhere, anytime. Bacus' WebSlide Server, a personal desktop Internet/Intranet server, is designed to provide virtual slides for access on a network through the COOLSCOPE VS. The server allows multiple users to observe a synchronized view of a particular slide along with an interactive pointer and discussion window.
