Digital technology may make microscopes obsolete
Following joint efforts by computer experts and pathologists, new tools allow microscope slides to be digitised, annotated and classified using easily accessible platforms. With Project Cytomine, researchers at the University of Liège have stayed in the forefront of the development of biomedical tools. A spin-off will be launched in late 2014.
