PAXcamHD Gross Imaging System

The pathology grossing camera provides a stunning HD 1080p video view in real time, and the powerful 30x zoom range accommodates a full table view, down to small fields of view within a tissue cassett

The feature-rich PAXcamHD Gross Imaging System is now distributed by Sakura Finetek USA.

The PAXcamHD Gross Imaging System is designed to provide superb images, video stream and audio that pathologist and pathology associates always wanted for their daily work.

The pathology grossing camera provides a stunning HD 1080p video view in real time, and the powerful 30x zoom range accommodates a full table view, down to small fields of view within a tissue cassette.   The zoom levels and other camera functions are controlled by footswitch for hands-free operation, using the ample presets provided.  There is no need to touch the camera for any zooming, exposure, or focus controls.

Digital image capture of your surgical pathology specimens can be sent to external applications and/or to the PAX-it image management system.   Video streams can be recorded or provided real-time for remote consultations on your network or over the internet!   The flexibility of the system for image capture and working with live video allows for a host of pathology lab needs to be met with one easy-to-use system.

With simple touch controls captured gross images can be marked up for measurements, sequential tagging of samples, and highlighting areas with circles, boxes, and text.   Let us show you how easily these steps can be accomplished when using the PAXcam HD pathology camera!
