UPRIGHT FLUORESCENCE AND BRIGHTFIELD SLIDE SCANNER
TissueFAXS PLUS is an upright fluorescence and brightfield system for the scanning and analysis of histological slides, cytospins, smears and Tissue Microarrays. The system is equipped with TissueQuest/HistoQuest or StrataQuest PLUS image analysis software.
TissueFAXS PLUS is also available in a brightfield or fluorescence scan only configuration.
TissueFAXS PLUS can be upgraded to the TissueFAXS Q+ configuration and additionally equipped with fluorescence high-speed packages.
- Fluorescence & brightfield scanning
- Extended depth of focus
- Compatible with oversized slides
- One click-automation
- TMA & FISH/CISH
- Multi-channel fluorescence & brightfield scanning
- Use any Dry or Oil immersion objectives
- Quantitative image analysis
- Live imaging option
- Inverted configuration available
- High-Speed fluorescence camera option
TissueFAXS PLUS is the most versatile configuration of all TG upright systems.
The fluorescence and slide brightfield scanner comes equipped with an 8-slide stage. It can scan and analyse samples on slides and slide-based sample containers in both brightfield and epifluorescence modes. It can be equipped with supplementary components for contrast microscopy methods, like Differential interference contrast (DIC) microscopy in brightfield. It scans 10 channels in epifluorescence if the maximum of 10 single bandpass filters is fitted or more if multi-bandpass 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 PLUS standard cameras are good examples 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 illuminantes.
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.
All imaging systems are modular and upgradable. Every system can be customized to offer the following capabilities: brightfield scanning, widefield fluorescence, confocal, and multispectral. To exemplify TissueFAXS PLUS can be ugraded to
