TISSUEscope™ slide scanner is the most versatile imaging platform in the digital pathology marketplace and will enhance any laboratory's capabilities. TISSUEscope™ scanner is unique because it accommodates an unmatched variety of specimen sizes ranging from 3" x 1" (75 mm x 25 mm) to as large as 8" x 6" (200mm x 150mm). This whole-slide imaging scanner offers confocal fluorescence and brightfield imaging modes in a single instrument, which adds flexibility for all types of research and education projects.

  1. Image specimens as large as 8" x 6" (200mm x 150mm)
  2. Ideal for whole-mount tissue specimens, such as brain, breast, lung, liver and prostate
  3. Confocal fluorescence and brightfield imaging modes in a single platform
  4. The only confocal fluorescence slide scanner in the marketplace
  5. Simultaneously acquire three fluorophores
  6. Up to five laser sources
  7. Automatically acquire Z stacks
  8. High-resolution imaging of cell and tissue specimens can be performed in 20X or 40X (0.6 NA)
  9. Wide field of view has a scan area that is 5 times larger than tiling microscopes and slide scanners
  10. Large field of view results in minimal photo-bleaching and image-stitching artefacts
  11. Fluorescence detection is Photo Multiplier Tube (PMT)-based, with high dynamic range allowing for better detection of weaker signals, without affecting scan speed
  12. Confocal fluorescence scans 10 mm x 10 mm at 0.5 microns in 5 minutes; 10 mm x 10 mm at 1 micron in 2.5 minutes
  13. Custom design options are available

TISSUEscope™ scanner would be a great complement to your core imaging facility. The capability to image small and large specimens, in confocal fluorescence or brightfield, makes this scanner the premier platform for research and educational purposes.


  1. Lower operating costs
  2. Increased efficiencies
  3. Enhanced workflow in pathology labs
  4. Decreased risk of human error
  5. Increased accuracy of research
  6. Reliable image quality
  7. Increased productivity of research staff

TISSUEscope™ scanner is ideal for any digital pathology environment that is intended for research and educational purposes. The flexibility of the TISSUEscope™ scanner has generated a large and diverse customer base.
