Axio Scan.Z1 is Autocalibrating, Easy to Retrofit and Guarantees Reliable Reproducibility – Every Time.

Highlights of Axio Scan.Z1 Virtual Microscopy

  • Digitize up to nine parallel fluorescence channels
  • Three synchronized high-speed filter wheels for excitation, color separation and emission can change channel in under 40 milliseconds
  • Sensitive cameras, highly corrected optics and perfected light sources for exceptional image quality in your virtual slides and short exposure times
  • Switch excitation wavelengths in milliseconds
  • No mechanical components move in the optical beam path when using tri-band and quad-band filter sets for virtual microscopy
  • Automatic calibration, from geometric to color calibration, reproduces virtual slides precisely and makes them compatible between systems
  • Decide how many virtual slides, which detection modes and what camera you need – and retrofit your Axio Scan.Z1 as you need it
  • Modular tray concept – tray design affords you maximum freedom with broad tolerances, with capacity to digitize virtual slides of 26 mm x 76 mm and 52 mm x 76 mm
  • Access to all settings, with ease of operation from automated and monitored profiles
  • Automatically store metadata with your virtual slides, allowing you to retrieve a record of all virtual microscopy operations at the click of a button
