Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
CENTER VALLEY, Pa., March 15, 2010 – Olympus America Inc. signed a nonexclusive worldwide licensing agreement with Omnyx LLC, a joint venture of GE Healthcare and the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.

The agreement will allow Omnyx to access Olympus America’s extensive portfolio of patents in the field of virtual microscopy and digital pathology, to help develop solutions in the digital pathology field. It will help clear the path for future imaging and data handling technologies that may facilitate the way doctors review and manage millions of biopsy slides and other pathology specimens now handled using glass slides and traditional optical microscopes, said the company.

The patents cover software and technology related to creating, storing and delivering virtual microscopy images. Professionals will be able to review biopsies and other pathology images without handling traditional glass slides. Additionally, the virtual microscope slides will allow doctors to share high-resolutions images over the Internet for remote pathology consultation.
