Biomedical Photometrics Inc., introduces panoramic confocal fluorescence and brightfield slide scanners, the TISSUEscope 4000, for the genomics and general microscopy markets. The instrument has four solid state fibre-coupled lasers as standard, enabling it to acquire images from slides stained with fluorescence markers such as DAPI/Hoechst in the violet, all the way into the far red (405, 488, 532 and 639 nm).
Brightfield image acquisition has been improved by adding a more efficient RGB detector system. The instrument comes with the latest version of the MACROview software, which now supports the industry standard BigTIFF image file format.
The user interface has been streamlined and provides the instrument operator with a significantly more efficient workflow, substantially reducing image scanning set up time. With the addition of a 5” x 7” motorized stage the TISSUEscope 4000 offers researchers the flexibility to acquire a wide range of specimen sizes, all in stunning high resolution (0.5µm/pixel) detail.
