The Leica SCN400 slide scanner from Leica Microsystems GmbH offers an alternative to the microscope for examining histological samples in pathology, research and teaching applications. The device’s custom-tailored high-resolution lens ensures that the image on the screen, including its color fidelity, is as good as a microscope’s. The scanner can load and scan four specimens at a time at a rate of 100 s per 15 × 15 mm at 20× magnification. Users can load new samples or remove finished scans without interrupting the process. Once a sample has been digitized, it can be retrieved, processed and made available to a defined group of database users.
