External quality control of microscopy analyses in the laboratory
The website server http://mecosvirt.ru can be used for simple, fast, cost-effective formation of electronic examination courses for control of the process of microscopy and analysis of biomaterials. To make it the mecosvirt.ru service offers to place representative digital copies (virtual slides, VSs) of the natural slides with the biomaterials to its pages. Computer exams by VSs at mecosvirt.ru closely simulate real-time microscopic analysis process in a laboratory environment.
Customers can arrange for students to freely access course pages or password-limited.
Each VS posted contains the customer's attributes and annotation forming the text of the exam. To view and analyze the VS, mecosvirt.ru provides for students interactive navigational means of moving through the VS using map and zoom. The presence of chat allows active forms of exam in real time. Written opinions generated by students can be sent to the examiner as an examination work.
Production of the VS for placement on the mecosvirt.ru the customer can perform on scanning microscopes of various models, including scanners of MECOS production (https://mecos.ru). To accommodate their VSs, the customer gets the mecosvirt.ru channel of export of the VSs from scanning microscope to the mecosvirt.ru.
