  • Online tutorials and user education resources

“Digital cytology has absolutely transformed our workflow and improved the client experience. I now call with official cytology results often before the client is home from their initial appointment. We’ve relied on it for immediate life threatening intra-operative case decisions. I also love the ability to get multiple pathology opinions in a matter of moments when we have a more challenging case. As we no longer rely on a mail courier for sample submission, we no longer deal with the occasional mail mis-delivery or lost sample. Our entire hospital loves the service, and I cannot see a scenario where we could go back to the old way of physical slides mailed for evaluation.”
