The Challenge

Current immediate evaluation techniques in pathology do not enable physicians and researchers to preview the entire tissue without destroying it. The result is a low-quality sample that often leads to repeat procedures.

The Solution

Instapath introduces Luci, an innovative microscope that images pathology samples within minutes at the point of a procedure while keeping the tissue intact and preserved for downstream testing.

Are you ready to see what Luci can do for you?

Luci for Clinical Use

Determine the composition of pathology tissue immediately at the point of procedure and any point along the histology process.

Clinical Features

  • Optimal for imaging fresh tissue

  • Capable of imaging samples in a variety of states (fresh, fixed or frozen)

  • Image on-site, interpret anywhere

  • Non-destructive to tissue

  • Eliminate manual workflow
