UPRIGHT FLUORESCENCE SLIDE SCANNER
TissueFAXS Fluo is an open concept, widefield, upright, fluorescence slide scanner designed for slides, cytospins, smears and tissue microarrays. The fluorescence slide scanning system is equipped with TissueQuest or StrataQuest Fluo image analysis software of which there are no equals.
TissueFAXS Fluo systems can be upgraded to TissueFAXS PLUS and TissueFAXS Q high-speed packages.
TissueFAXS PLUS adds brightfield scanning in addition to fluorescence.
- Fluorescence scanning & analysis
- 8 capacity slide scanning
- Slide ID recognition
- Quantitative image analysis option
- TMA & FISH scanning & analysis
- Automatic tissue detection
- Extended focus, stitching & illumination correction
- Image and metadata storage, management and archiving
- Completely upgradable to higher capacity and Confocal slide scanning
- Over 1,500 publications reference TissueGNOSTICS fluorescence slide scanners
TissueFAXS Fluo is TGs upright epifluorescence slide scanning system. The dedicated instrument comes equipped with an 8-slide stage. It can scan and analyse samples on slides and slide-based sample containers in epifluorescence mode. It scans 10 channels in epifluorescence if the maximum of 10 single bandpass filters is fitted or more if multibandpass filters are used.
Objectives from all Zeiss objective classes with M24 thread can be fitted, the turret takes a maximum of seven.
TG continuously checks the market for cameras and other technical equipment to provide those solutions that deliver top performance and are cost-effective. The TissueFAXS i Fluo standard camera is a good example of this successful strategy.
The right illumination is of paramount importance in light microscopy. TG provides fully system software-controlled solutions which are mostly maintenance free and have long lasting illuminators.
The correct filters which guarantee pixel shift-free and low channel crosstalk are equally important to make fluorescence scanning easily accessible for all users of a TG system.
TissueFAXS Scanning and Management software integrates all the hardware components into an easy to use workflow with full, walk-away automation capabilities.
All fluorescence slide scanning imaging systems are modular and upgradable. Every instrument can be customized to offer the following capabilities: brightfield scanning, widefield fluorescence scanning, confocal scanning, and multispectral scanning. To exemplify TissueFAXS Fluo can be upgraded to:
– TissueFAXS PLUS (image on the left)
