The purpose of this standard is to provide common terminology and test methods for describing the performance of Digital Microscope Analyzer, Whole Slide Image Scanner and Digital Microscope. It is meant for users and manufacturers of these instrument systems. The main body presents many performance features, sources of error, and test methods. The tests are meant to be used by manufacturers to locate and correct sources of error in the hardware. The information in this standard can also be applied by users to correct some of the errors by software and architecture processing after the image has been recorded.This standard defines the electrical and mechanical specifications of the Digital Microscope Analyzer, Whole Slide Image Scanner and Digital Microscope that are used in clinical laboratory medicine. It specifically describes application in Cytology, Hematopathology, Pathology, Telepathology, Toxicology Pathology, molecular biology, and Semiconductor. Special applications may require additional manufacturer information and verification tests.
