    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    The U.S. Patent Office has granted a patent to Leica Biosystems for Real-Time Focusing (RTF) technology (U.S. patent 9,841,590). The technology is designed to enable fast, high-volume line scanning of anatomic pathology slides.

    “RTF technology dramatically improves slides’ scanning speed while delivering excellent optical focus. Extremely short scan times can now be achieved at 40× magnification,” said Jerome Clavel, general manager of Leica Biosystems Pathology Imaging. “We have been working internally with RTF technology for quite some time. We will be integrating and commercializing RTF into our next-generation digital pathology platform shortly.”

    Leica Biosystems has been testing RTF at the…
