Virtual microscopy system offers high throughputs

Olympus America : 19 April, 2007  (New Product)
The Nanozoomer virtual microscopy system features a fluorescence attachment that enables high throughput conversion of fluorescence glass slides into high-quality digital slides.
Nanozoomer, which also offers brightfield slide capability, is part of Olympus' comprehensive offering of imaging based systems and solutions for the pathology suite.

Manufactured by Hamamatsu and distributed by Olympus in the USA and Canada, Nanozoomer allows pathologists and researchers to do fast, accurate slide scanning for analysis, publication or archiving.

With the click of a button, up to 210 slides are automatically scanned at 20x or 40x using three 4096 x 64 pixel Time Delay and Integration (TDI) CCD imaging sensors.

The sensors provide an efficient optical system so that higher speed scanning is possible with reduced specimen photobleaching.

The end result is a high quality virtual fluorescence slide in just minutes.

Digital slide technology allows the user to scan and archive entire slides at high resolution without degradation of image quality, eliminating the potential for image fading that usually hampers fluorescence slide archiving.

Users can compare the fluorescence image with other samples for qualitative and quantitative studies.

An image of the entire slide is available on a large monitor, and the user can easily select specific points for further magnification and observation.

Digitised samples can be copied and edited for teaching or consultation.

Nanozoomer is compatible with a variety of third party analysis packages.
