InnoScan 710 - Two Color Microarray Scanner

EASE OF USE, SPEED AND IMAGE QUALITY

Characterised by its ease-of-use, speed and image quality, InnoScan 710 is the ideal tool for routine microarray reading

Speed

With its patented XY motorisation, the InnoScan 710 is the fastest scanner on the market with adjustable reading speed from 10 to 35 lines per second (capable of scanning slides at 10 μm/pixel in less than 4 minutes).

Reliable and traceable results

With a barcode reader, InnoScan 710 provides accurate control of acquired images. InnoScan 710 is supplied with a validation slide and associated Mapix software that verifies scanner performance.

Routine use

InnoScan 710 is a low cost, portable scanner capable of reading medium density microarrays at a maximum resolution of 3 µm/pixel.

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.
