Pathologists can give a reliable diagnosis when microscopic images are coupled with macroscopic ones. In the era of the digitalization of pathology, it is now possible to access micro and macro images from one place, quickly and comfortably.

3DHISTECH presents the MacroStation, a grossing table with image recording system, designed for use with digital slides. The MacroStation not only records images and helps you mark the specimen but can also be connected to CaseCenter so all your case data can be stored there. The easy-to-use MacroStation offers a manual and economical solution to acquire pathological gross macro images.

Thanks to its light-weight design, it does not require any additional work for its installation and daily use. The built-in light source and zoom functions ensure the high quality gross images from this instrument. It is covered by acid-proof stainless steel for easy cleaning.

The images can be uploaded to CaseCenter and can be used as regular whole-slide images: they can be annotated, shared or even discussed via teleconsultation.
