The tender applies to the procurement of one scanner for digital pathology in accordance with the requirement specifications, including options for 2 equivalent apparatuses for other health companies in HMN over a period of 2 years.
The scanner shall be used for scanning histological tissue sections. The pictures shall be used by pathology for using a microscope on a monitor — both for ‘normal’ diagnostics and picture analysis. The equipment shall not have the capacity for ‘large volume scanning’ of the department's production, but it will be used for evaluating digital diagnostics, establishing routines in the laboratory, establishing the doctor's workplace and implementing picture analysis assisted diagnostics. The scanner shall also be used for remote diagnostics between hospitals (Molde, Ålesund and St Olavs). The scanner shall not be integrated at the start with the pathology system Sympathy, but used as a ‘stand alone’ system. The pictures are to be sent from the scanner to a file folder, alternatively to a database. In the long term the scanner shall be a part of a complete digital pathology system in the region.
