The BD FocalPoint™ is an automated imaging system that can assist in the primary screening of BD SurePath™ liquid based cytology slides and is currently used worldwide.

Up to 288 slides can be loaded onto the system at the same time with the capacity to load additional slides during the working day. The system can operate 24 hours continually over a 7 day period and is monitored remotely by the manufacturer Becton Dickinson via VPN connection therefore providing a reliable and robust clinical service.

The system is designed to scan the SurePath™ liquid based cytology slides using a high-speed video microscope that transfers the images to specifically designed integrated "field of view" computer boards. These then collect and process the images using patented algorithms to interpret the images and classify the slides that can be archived as No Further Review (NFR).

The system has the unique function of archiving up to 25% for "NFR". These slides do not require any primary manual intervention therefore providing significant benefits to the laboratory.


Features:

  • The system detects morphologic changes associated with epithelial abnormalities and specimen adequacy
  • Remove the requirement for expensive locums
  • Assists with LEAN working practices
  • Supports 14 day turnaround time
  • Complements existing laboratory workflow
  • Each slide is scanned 5 times
  • Can be used with multiple sites
  • Both glass and plastic coverslipps can be used
  • Can be integrated with Laboratory Information System
  • Minimal Operator intervention
  • All training and support provided by Source BioScience

These algorithms enable the BD FocalPoint™ to scan BD SurePath™ LBC slides using the existing staining parameters and settings.
