Slide scanner 250 Flash III


3DHistech Pannoramic 250 Flash III is an automatic slide scanner for histology and fluorescence with 250 slide capacity for analysis, telepathology and e-learning.  Brightfield scanning is performed very fast by flashing a stroboscope light source and continuous stage movement.


 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!


This is a proprietary system.

Slide preparation

Please read instructions on preparation of slides here.


Acquisition and analysis

Acquisition is performed using the proprietary Pannoramic scanner software. Visualization and analysis are performed using the CaseViewer 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.
