Slide Scanning Platform

The slide scanning platform makes it effective to create high-quality virtual slides for various histological analyses.

Process automation allows, with a minimum of handling, for the production of brightfield and fluorescence images.

The LED lighting and the different filters used allow to acquire digital images from a panoply of fluorochromes emitting at various wavelengths, ranging from violet to deep reds.
