Slide Scanner: Zeiss AxioScan.z1

Description: The AxioScan.Z1 slide scanner produces brightfield and fluorescent “virtual slides” at up to 20x magnification. This instrument captures the contents of a slide as series of image tiles and stitches the tiles into a single, full-resolution image: the “virtual slide.” The AxioScan.Z1 provides both a global and highly detailed view of each slide.

Slide scanning is provided as a service.
