Fast and Versatile Slide Scanner Suitable for Quantitative Analysis

The new TissueScope, engineered in collaboration with Huron Digital Pathology is a fast, and versatile whole slide scanner that is super-charged with MBF big data handling technology to easily stream high quality image data suitable for quantitative analysis with all of our software.


  • Brightfield slide scanner that handles up to twelve, 1”x 3” (25mm x 75mm) slides, six, 2” x 3” (50mm x 75mm) slides or any single slide up to 6” x 8” (150mm x 200mm) for larger specimens that most other scanners can’t handle. At a 60 micron section thickness/internal, an entire mouse brain can be mounted in a single tray
  • Fast: <1 minute per slide (15mm x 15mm section at 20x)
  • High Resolution: 0.2 at 40x, 0.4 at 20x with optical resolution of 0.75na
  • Versatile: 2D and 3D slide scanning
  • Easy to Use: Automatic tissue detection and automatic focus
  • Easy to Manage: Image-based barcode reading
  • Big Data Handling: File format optimized for streaming with Biolucida image server and for analysis
  • Optional slide loader capabilities to easily scan up to 120 standard or 60 double-wide slides, or even larger slides up to 6" x 8"
1"x 3" Slides

2"x 3" Slides

Any Size Slides up to 6"x 8"


Whole Slide Scanning

Acquiring high-resolution digital images of histology slides is easier than ever with the ongoing advancements in microscope image acquisition hardware and software. Resource consumption from digital/virtual slides is minimal and the benefits are numerous. Whole slide scanning provides numerous benefits to scientists such as the ability to:

  • Create digital archives of tissue specimens that never degrade and don't require special physical storage
  • Preserve fluorescence indefinitely
  • Minimize photodamage from repeated microscopic imaging
  • Store, transfer, and share whole slide image data that you can access from any computer system
  • Analyze large 2D and 3D image data files on a dedicated workstation separate from the microscope
  • Perform essential data analyses such as stereology for counting cells and quantifying volumes
  • Develop image content for scientific publications and presentations
