“Nicolae Testemițanu” State University of Medicine and Pharmacy (SUMPh) of the Republic of Moldova invites to the event to equip the Department of Morphopathology with a Pannoramic modern scanner – a digital imaging system of histological, cytological and immunohistochemical blades – as part of a project implemented and financed by the Department for the Relationship with the Republic of Moldova (DRRM) of the Government of Romania.
The event will take place on November 17, 2023, inside Didactic Block No. 1 “Leonid Cobileanschi” (27 Nicolae Testemițanu St), Histopathology Laboratory of the Department of Morphopathology (office No. 109), starting at 10:00 a.m.
The event will involve secretary of state of the DRRM Adrian Dupu, rector of “Nicolae Testemițanu” SUMPh, professor Emil Ceban, pro-rectors, members of the Department of Morphopathology, department heads, students, and resident doctors.
The equipment will be used as a scanner with whole slides and with real-time visualization. Digital imaging produces images of the blade, using software that enables the users to examine the whole blade or a fragment of this and to magnify the image at high resolution. The images of blades can be stored on a server and a digital blades database can be created to optimize the process of study and research in the field of morphopathology and in other areas.
The advantages of this modern scanner include: full or partial bright-field scanning of the blade; visualization of images of scanned blades on any computer and by a unlimited numbered of students simultaneously, which facilitates dialogue and studying in a group; eliminates the necessity of creating and maintaining laboratories with microscope blades; blades can be prepared from the best histological, cytological and immunohistochemical samples for teaching purposes and for contemporary research; there is no need to prepare more sets of blades for learning; enables the exchange of blades between universities so that a high-quality blades collection can be swiftly developed at low costs and can include blades that are hard or impossible to prepare locally (such as blades with specific immunohistochemistry straining, representing rare diseases in the Republic of Moldova etc.). The system also enables to identify cases using barcodes and the personal data are therefore protected. It has flexible settings for different properties of tissues and a wide range of image resolutions.
The value of the scanner is of about €60,000.
