Jenoptik and MikroScan Partner
JENA, Germany, Nov. 1, 2010 — High technology optics and digital imaging products provider Jenoptik, through its digital imaging division, has partnered with MikroScan Technologies of Vista, Calif., to design and manufacture high-speed and high-resolution imaging modules from its ProgRes camera line.
The partnership will develop a new generation of high-speed scanners that will be offered from MikroScan. Designed for single or multi-slide use, the digital scanners are compatible with many image analysis, diagnostic and data management programs.
Typical slide scan times are under 2 min. for 15 x 15 mm samples at 20x magnification. Models are currently available for brightfield scanning applications, with fluorescence capabilities to be released shortly.
MikroScan Technologies markets high quality instruments for laboratory use.

- The emission of light or other electromagnetic radiation of longer wavelengths by a substance as a result of the absorption of some other radiation of shorter wavelengths, provided the emission continues only as long as the stimulus producing it is maintained. In other words, fluorescence is the luminescence that persists for less than about 10-8 s after excitation.
- The ratio of the size of the image of an object to that of the object. The ratio of the linear size of the image to that of the object is lateral magnification. Angular magnification is the ratio of the apparent angular size of the image observed through an optical device to that of the object viewed by the unaided eye. Longitudinal magnification is the ratio of the longitudinal or axial dimension of an image to the corresponding dimension of the object.
