Motic Digital Pathology has expanded its MoticEasyScan product line with the release of the NEW Infinity—a high-throughput slide scanner with the ability to scan more than 1,000 glass slides, swiftly and efficiently, per week.

The NEW Infinity introduces a comprehensive redesign of high-volume slide handling, using intelligent automated quality control to eliminate the need for pre-scan setup. Along with faster loading and scanning capabilities, this most recent addition to the MoticEasyScan product line uses Smart Tray technology. The Smart Tray technology cuts down on technician work time and error rates by providing real-time tracking and identification of every slide scanned through the system. Combined with the new automatic image QC algorithm, scanning projects can be completed quickly, efficiently, and virtually click-free.

“We’ve long observed that high-volume slide scanners all have robotics that move glass slides back and forth from some sort of large, sophisticated onboard glass slide cabinet,” says Dan Walker, product manager at Motic Digital Pathology. “With the NEW Infinity, we’ve reimagined that workflow without the need for these expensive and hard-to-maintain components.”

The solution is an instrument that is less than half of the size and cost than those of leading competitors, while still yielding high-quality slides at a comparable 1,000 slides per week.

In contrast to traditional big-box scanners, the NEW Infinity is engineered to minimize hands-on time spent in the lab by researchers and technicians. Organizational efficiency, Motic believes, is the chief driver of throughput. The throughput of any lab can be compounded and supported by efficient slide organization, especially for high-volume labs managing multiple projects at once.

A compact and powerful whole-slide scanner designed to enhance organizational efficiency, the NEW Infinity reduces needless motion and optimizes the hands-on experience when scanning over 1,000 high-quality digital slides in a typical 40-hour work week.
