  • Speed: with a reading time of 100 minutes for 24 slides, InnoScan AutoLoader is now the fastest scanner on the market.
  • Automation: Insert your slides easily into the loader and configure reading and analysis parameters in a few clicks using the user-friendly and efficient Mapix software. Create different reading and analysis programs for different slides in the same cycle.
  • Ease-of-use: reading and analysis is now ultra-simple :
    • Load your microarrays
    • Run the cycle
    • Collect your results

InnoScan AutoLoader is compatible with a wide variety of microarrays (DNA, Protein, aCGH, etc.) from different suppliers but also home made microarrays. The InnoScan 710 AL model is ideal for reading medium or low density slides, and the InnoScan 900 AL offers the resolution required to read high density slides for the following applications:

  • Functional genomics: CNV, genotyping, DNA methylation. Gene expression profiling.
  • Proteomics: Protein expression profiling.
  • Clinical research: Cytogenetics & IVF. Disease stratification.
  • Industry application: Food contaminant investigations. New drug impact research.

The InnoScan 1100 AL allows to completely automate the scans of slides at very high resolution (0.5µm/pixel) which is of interest for scanning cell microarrays (CMA). The CMA and other tissue IF slides are used on cancer research and other cell biology fields.

InnoScan AutoLoader is a very compact scanner which saves laboratory space.

Its frontal loading system, reachable by a vertical sliding door, allows users to easily load/unload up to 24 slides directly with no need of a special slide holder. All standard in market slides are fully compatible.

With the help of several sensors and an innovative gripping system (without tongs or fork), the slides' physical integrity is ensured during insertion/extraction process.
