MUSE provides unprecedented detailed color images using short-wavelength UV light to penetrate tissue only microns-deep, eliminating the need for precision-cut specimens and slides.
High-quality sample preparation is narrowed from the industry standard 2 weeks to only minutes, allowing faster physician and veterinarian patient diagnosis and treatment protocol.
Non-destructive MUSE technology retains the quality of the original samples, preserving valuable tissue for molecular studies. Digital technology allows fast and easy distribution of MUSE results.
Standard histological tissue processing involves multiple time-consuming steps including tissue fixation, dehydration, paraffin embedding, physical sectioning and staining, and therefore typically requires at least one day before specimens can be evaluated. MUSE also eliminates the need for microtome maintenance.
MUSE delivers results in minutes.
Instead of plane H&E images, MUSE produces superior, crisp, 3-D images that mimic the current H&E slides that the pathologists are used to seeing under the microscope. Thus the pathologists don’t need to be re-trained to read the images from MUSE.
With MUSE, there’s no need for the handling of formalin, wax clean-up and disposal, microtome maintenance/upkeep, and preparation of glass slides to be stained and fixed for pathologist to use. Tissues could be stained and read in (usually 3) minutes versus days, which is extremely advantageous for areas such as interventional radiology, dermatology, surgery, worried patients/patient families, etc.

Images from MUSE could be digitized and sent to a pathology lab to be read immediately. This is extremely advantageous for countries and areas in the world where access to a pathologist or a histology lab is difficult.
