Slide Scanner (Upright Widefield Fluorescence)

Olympus VS120

Our virtual 6-slide scanning system creates high resolution images in brightfield (all magnifications), darkfield (4x, 10x, and 20x) and / or multi-fluorescence mode (all magnifications). Image stitching is very precise enabling high-level accuracy that can be applied from small animal brain slices to large specimens. Seamless switching between micro and macro observation to enable swift viewing of regions of interest and overall structures.
