Technologie

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.
