Today, digital pathology is at a tipping point, with the evolution from glass to digital already transforming standards of care. This transformation is being driven by the technological combination of high-speed, high-resolution imaging; trusted medical data storage; fast, secure data transmission; and intuitive, inter-operable workflows with continual improvements in AI.

Siemens Healthineers (Erlangen, Germany) has entered into a multi-year distribution agreement with Hamamatsu (Shizuoka, Japan), under which Hamamatsu will provide NanoZoomer whole slide scanners to support Siemens’ expansion into digital pathology in the Americas and Europe.

Hamamatsu, a leading manufacturer of photonics devices, including whole slide scanners for digital pathology, has more than 60 years of experience in photonics engineering. The company has developed NanoZoomer scanners which are renowned for their image quality, reliability, and ease of use. Siemens has decades of experience in diagnostics, enterprise imaging, and healthcare IT. The partnership with Hamamatsu NanoZoomer whole slide scanners will help Siemens close the gap between radiology and pathology to achieve full potential of digital operations in patient care.

"This partnership between Hamamatsu and Siemens Healthineers will create tremendous value for laboratories and healthcare ecosystems," said, Fumio Iwase, Executive Officer, Division Director, Systems Division at Hamamatsu Photonics K.K., who believes that integrating complex hardware and software solutions into pathologists' workflow is critical to maximizing the potential of digital pathology in clinical environments. "Together, we will help laboratories across healthcare systems adopt digital pathology by seamlessly integrating pathologists' workflow with hardware to provide the utmost patient care."

"We now complement our portfolio for digital pathology with the products and expertise of Hamamatsu," added Christian Zapf, Head of Digital & Automation at Siemens Healthineers. "Together with our strong Syngo Carbon portfolio in enterprise imaging IT, we can now help our customers to comprehensively gain the benefits of a digital transformation in digital pathology."
