INTRODUCTION: Telemicrobiology is a growing component of clinical microbiology informatics. However, few studies have been performed to assess the diagnostic utility of telemicroscopy systems in evaluating infectious agents. OBJECTIVE: Evaluate multiple contemporary digital pathology platforms for use in diagnostic telemicrobiology. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A mix of thirty cases that included viral, bacterial, fungal, and parasitological findings were evaluated by four experts using ×40 whole slide imaging (WSI) scans, ×83 oil-immersion WSI scans, ×100 oil-immersion WSI scans, digital photomicrographs, and glass slides...

CONTEXT: Microbiology laboratories are continually pursuing means to improve quality, rapidity, and efficiency of specimen analysis in the face of limited resources. One means by which to achieve these improvements is through the remote analysis of digital images. Telemicrobiology enables the remote interpretation of images of microbiology specimens. To date, the practice of clinical telemicrobiology has not been thoroughly reviewed. OBJECTIVE: To identify the various methods that can be employed for telemicrobiology, including emerging technologies that may provide value to the clinical laboratory...

The clinical microbiology laboratory has responsibilities ranging from characterizing the causative agent in a patient's infection to helping detect global disease outbreaks. All of these processes are increasingly becoming partnered more intimately with informatics. Effective application of informatics tools can increase the accuracy, timeliness, and completeness of microbiology testing while decreasing the laboratory workload, which can lead to optimized laboratory workflow and decreased costs. Informatics is poised to be increasingly relevant in clinical microbiology, with the advent of total laboratory automation, complex instrument interfaces, electronic health records, clinical decision support tools, and the clinical implementation of microbial genome sequencing...

Infectious diseases are among the most common diseases in military deployment situations. Their diagnosis requires special equipment and expertise, which are both provided by the laboratories within the mission area. In order to further enhance the diagnostic process by means of telemedical expert support, a telemicrobiology module with special devices, camera and software has been designed within the medical service of the German armed forces as a modification to the standard telemedicine workstation. The telemicrobiology equipment which was not only developed but also evaluated at Koblenz, was then installed in the mission laboratories and has proved useful in routine practice...

BACKGROUND: Deficits in clinical microbiology infrastructure exacerbate global infectious disease burdens. This paper examines how commodity computation, communication, and measurement products combined with open-source analysis and communication applications can be incorporated into laboratory medicine microbiology protocols. Those commodity components are all now sourceable globally. An informatics model is presented for guiding the use of low-cost commodity components and free software in the assembly of clinically useful and usable telemicrobiology workstations...

Infectious diseases are among the most common medical conditions suffered by soldiers while serving in missions away from their home countries. The diagnosis of these diseases requires special procedures and expertise, both of which are provided by field microbiological laboratories. In order to support the diagnostic process by means of telemedicine, a modification of the standard German Armed Forces telemedicine workstation was devised. A telemicrobiology module with special equipment, camera, and software has been designed and validated...

Infectious diseases are among the most common diseases suffered by soldiers while serving in missions away from their home countries. The diagnosis of theses diseases requires special procedures and expertise, both of which are provided by field microbiological laboratories. In order to support the diagnostic process by means of telemedicine, a modification of the standard telemedicine workstation, i.e. a telemicrobiology module with special equipment, camera and software, has been designed and validated. This module, currently in use in two operational theaters, has stood the test in routine practice...

BACKGROUND: Rural hospitals generally lack staffing with infectious disease specialists or pathologists. Without on-site pathologists, the range of microbiology services offered by clinical laboratories may be limited as well. OBJECTIVE: To study the feasibility of using static-image telepathology to evaluate Gram stains of microbiologic preparations. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this retrospective feasibility study, three pathologists evaluated Gram stains of slides from 50 cases by two viewing modalities: static-image telepathology and conventional light microscopy...
