Robot evaluates tissue layers with nanometer precision

imagesThe robot is capable of displaying NanoZoomer with an extremely high resolution tissue samples at various levels in order to help the understanding of cancer. This allows detailed assessment of the effect produced by cancer treatments on cells and tissues. This development is the result of cooperation of the institute of pathology and medical and biometric information from the University of Heidelberg and the Japanese company Hamamatsu Photonics.

Dr. Niels Grabe of the Institute of Biometry and Medical Informatics and research director of TIGA notes that in the future robots will be able to determine in a fully automatic changes in cells and tissues.
