March 17, 2008. Patent For Virtual Telemicroscope
Virginia M. Anderson, MD, associate professor of pathology at SUNY Downstate, and Jiang Gu, MD, PhD, dean and chairman of pathology at Peking University, developed the virtual microscope system, the only one of its kind capable of emailing electronic slides. Using their patent, the Chinese company Motic — a global leader in microscope manufacturing — created a microscope with a robotic stage that scans whole slides at various magnifications and then creates compressed images that can be emailed all over the world.

April 28, 2008. Olympus has announced the sale of a complete tele-pathology solution to the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Cancer Network
The advanced solution combines the unique properties of the Olympus dotSlide and intraScope systems to provide both real-time and virtual slide analysis as well as discussion capabilities
