Some Reference Customers

VM Slide Explorer is for example used by the following customers:

  • University of Applied Sciences Berlin:
    The University of Applied Sciences Berlin uses VM Slide Explorer mainly for its option to develop own plugins. Health Informatics students use Slide Explorer to develop own virtual microscopy plugins that will run within VM Slide Explorer.
    VM Slide Explorer already provides an easy and comfortable plugin interface to realise that.
  • University Hospital Berlin Charité, Centre for Anatomy:
    For its brain course, the Anatomy needed a Virtual Microscope that runs locally on 10 computers in the anatomic dissection hall. It is used to show some selected slides for teaching.
    For that application all the functionality of Slide Explorer to organise and visualise several metadata was very helpful: Texts, annotations in the image, scaling and so on.
