CENTER VALLEY, Pa., Nov. 14, 2012 — Olympus America Inc. offers researchers doing whole-slide imaging the option of using dark-field illumination to image specimens on its VS120 virtual slide microscope system.

The robust imaging system also offers bright-field and fluorescence illumination. Dark-field is useful for providing structural detail, particularly when observing nonstained specimens. The dark-field view can be used in conjunction with either bright-field or fluorescence for a deeper understanding of structure and function.

The dark-field illuminator is useful for brain imaging, Connectome mapping and other neuroscience studies, where many researchers prefer to use unstained samples. It provides additional tools for researchers using silver staining. The dark-field illuminator attaches to any VS120 or VS110 virtual slide system with a simple stage insert.

The VS120 virtual microscopy system scans up to 100 slides at a time at very high fidelity, so that users anywhere in the world can view and navigate high-resolution images of entire microscope slides or slide areas using a computer. It is designed for a variety of research applications and also has uses in training, education and archiving.
