Premium Pricing of Whole Slide Imaging Systems

The high cost of whole slide imaging systems is a major factor expected to hamper its adoption across developing countries. The overall cost of slide scanning is very high, which would be beyond budget for some medium-scale laboratories.

Higher maintenance and installations costs and costlier training and development programs for end users are other factors likely to impede practical implementation of whole slide imaging systems.

Moreover, the high cost of hardware for on-premise solution is impeding the use of imaging scanners in clinical purposes, where test samples are analyzed for one-time diagnosis. This also has decreased the adoption of slide imaging scanners in small-scale labs, and restricted the market growth.

Market Definition

Whole slide imaging systems are instruments integrated with software that can convert microscope images into digital images. Whole slide imaging systems scan slides either manually or automatically.  

Several whole slide image scanners perform batch scanning (scanning of one slide at a time) and continuous or random access processing (slides can be uploaded while another is being scanned). Whole slide images offer novel clinical, nonclinical and research applications for digital pathology. Whole slide image platforms have the potential to improve diagnostic accuracy, balance workloads and they increase the workflow efficiency.
