  • Slide Scanner

Nov 2009
Leica Microsystems GmbHRequest Info
Leica Microsystems GmbH has announced the SCN400 slide scanner as an alternative to the microscope for examining histological samples. The custom-tailored lens for a digital sensor ensures that the resolution and color fidelity of the image on the screen are as good as they are with a traditional microscope. The system can load and scan up to four specimens at a time with a scanning rate of 100 s per 15 × 15 mm at 20× magnification. Users can load new samples or remove finished scans without interruption, and once a sample has been digitized, it can be retrieved, processed and made available to a defined group of users in a database. Applications include pathology, research and teaching.

A transparent optical component consisting of one or more pieces of optical glass with surfaces so curved (usually spherical) that they serve to converge or diverge the transmitted rays from an object, thus forming a real or virtual image of that object.
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.
The successive analysis or synthesizing of the light values or other similar characteristics of the components of a picture area, following a given method.
