Putting in vivo cellular imaging at your fingertips.

Real-time visualization

Virtually unlimited number of samples

Digital images - anytime, anywhere

Introducing ZEISS CONVIVO In Vivo Pathology Suite

The In Vivo Pathology Suite ZEISS CONVIVO allows real-time feedback on tissue microstructure through digital pathology consultation. The Surgical Workplace connects to the Pathology Workplace and enables cross-functional medical team members to remote-access in vivo images in the OR to support the surgeon.

Visualize tissue microstructure in real-time

The Surgical Workplace allows to seamlessly integrate imaging of cellular structures into the surgical workflow. Confocal laser scanning microscopy is used in combination with the contrast agent fluorescein sodium to visualize cellular and architectural characteristics of tissue with high resolution.

Check a virtually unlimited number of samples in situ

As no extraction of tissue or processing is required, images can be acquired from a virtually unlimited number of locations in the situs. The intuitive user interface allows for scanning of areas of interest, quickly delivering the necessary number of images.

Image creation by confocal scanning microscopy

The scanner probe emits low-intensity laser light, which is focused at an adjustable focus depth up to 200 microns inside the patient's tissue. The focal point is moved fast thereby scanning the field of view in quick repetition.
