The Microscopy business group of Carl Zeiss is launching a digital slide scanner. Axio Scan.Z1 is an automated microscope system that allows researchers to digitize fixed tissue sections and cytologic specimens in bright-field and fluorescence applications.

Thanks to the tray concept, the scanner captures the entire specimen area of the microscope slide, including the edge. A few minutes later, the self-calibrating automatic slide scanner presents specimens on high-quality virtual slides. Up to 100 microscope slides can be digitized at a time. For fluorescence applications, filter wheels switch wavelengths in 50 ms. Sensitive cameras and maximally corrected optics achieve optimal image quality. The Colibri.2 UV-free LED light source and a focus finder with oblique illumination, the ring aperture contrast, ensure maximum protection for the sample.

Applications include tissue analysis in Alzheimer’s disease, cancer research and the pharmaceutical industry.

Axio Scan.Z1 is operated by proprietary ZEN imaging software, which allows users to work with predefined recording parameters automatically or to select all settings individually.

The virtual slides are organized in the ZEN Browser web-based database. Independent of the operating system, users can access, view and share their images and data with colleagues online and organize entire projects, even while traveling. There is also a free app for iPad and iPhone to facilitate this.

Users can decide how many microscope slides and which detection modes and camera they wish to use, and can upgrade Axio Scan.Z1 as their tasks expand.
