Slide Scanner MIDI

 

Introduction

The 3D Histech Pannoramic MIDI is an automatic digital whole slide scanner for histology and fluorescence with 12 slide tray capacity for analysis, telepathology and e-learning.

 

 Reymond coleman We would like to thank Prof. Raymond Coleman for his initiative to purchase a high resolution digital slide scanning system and his relentless drive to produce and acquire hundreds of outstanding histology slides to be stored in virtual archives for practical histology instruction.  May his vision of a national repository of virtual microscopy be realized soon!

Hardware

The scanner uses a Plan-Apochromat x20/0.8 objective lens and is attached to a Hitachi HV-F22  color camera and a Zeiss AxioCam MRm  monochrome camera.

Acquisition and analysis

Acquisition is performed using the proprietary Pannoramic scanner software. Visualization and analysis are performed using the Pannoramic Viewer software, free to download from the 3DHISTECH site, providing seamless zooming and panning of the virtual slide and export to JPEG and TIFF for quantitative analysis in Imaris or ImageJ/FIJI.
