InnoScan 710-IR - 2-Color near InfraRed microarray scanner

Increased sensitivity

NIR excitation lasers to avoid support background
Simultaneous confocal PMT detection
All nitrocellulose slide formats

Real-time autofocus

Optimized for nitrocellulose or PVDF substrates
Perfect homogeneity across the entire reading surface
Automated image acquisition with MAPIX software

Adjustable reading speed

From 10 to 35 lines per second
Test results optained very quickly 3.6 minutes to read and entire slide with 10μm/pixel


Confocal detection

  • Optimize fluorescence detection
  • Assure good focalization all along the scan
  • Less background
  • SNR is increased by 2.5 times

Real-time autofocus

  • Detection idone through a spatial phinhole
  • Follows the slide movement and deformation in real time during the scan
  • Avoid all out-of-focus signal

Automatic barcode reader

  • Reliable and traceable results

All standard microscope slides format

  • Glass
  • Nitrocelluose coated glass
  • Plastic
  • Silicon wafer
  • Gold coated glass

Dynamic range

  • From > 104 to >106
  • Detect the lowest signals avoiding saturation.
