OBERKOCHEN, Germany, Jan. 23, 2014 — Carl Zeiss Microscopy now offers an automated, self-calibrating slide scanner for its Axio Scan.Z1 microscope, which digitizes fixed-tissue sections and cytologic specimens in bright-field and fluorescence modes for applications ranging from biomedical research to pharmaceutics.

The tray design captures the entire specimen area of the slide, including the edge, in minutes, and specimens are presented on virtual slides. For fluorescence applications, filter wheels switch wavelengths in 50 ms. The device features a Colibri.2 UV-free LED light source and a focus finder with oblique illumination, called a ring aperture contrast.

Observation of samples using excitation produced fluorescence. A sample is placed within the excitation laser and the plane of observation is scanned. Emitted photons from the sample are filtered by a long pass dichroic optic and are detected and recorded for digital image reproduction.
