ScanScope FL

The current trend in scientific research and drug discovery is toward multiplexing with a variety of fluorescent biomarkers. Multiplexing improves efficiency and reduces the cost associated with tissue and TMA-based assays.

The ScanScope FL eSlide capture device addresses the growing demand for whole slide images of slides stained with multiple fluorochromes. With the monochrome camera and quad multi-band pass filter set provided with the system, up to four color channels can be utilized. However, the six-position filter cube turret and excitation filter wheel allow for even greater flexibility. Advanced illumination, autoexposure, and autofocus capabilities eliminate the need for trial-and-error image capture, greatly minimizing the occurrence of photobleaching. These high-resolution multi-channel digital images can be archived permanently, eliminating concerns about fluorochrome fading on the glass slides.
