The Complete Solution for Pathology Imaging at the IBMS Congress 2007
Product News Jun 08, 2007
At this year’s IBMS Congress, Nikon Instruments will be demonstrating its complete suite of digital solutions for pathology imaging on Stand No 320.
These range from the capture, storage and exchange of macro images right through to high capacity scanners for the creation of digital slides, image analysis and remote, dynamic telepathology. In addition, delegates have the chance to win a Nikon D80 camera in the charity raffle, raising money for Mercy Ships, Nikon’s charity of the year.
At each stage of the imaging cycle, Nikon will be demonstrating its very latest products, including: a revolutionary Macro Imaging System; high performance Digital Sight cameras; and an advanced ScanScope slide scanner from Aperio.
The Macro Imaging System will allow images of complete specimens to be digitally captured prior to subsequent sectioning for microscopic examination. Once prepared, these can be then be viewed on the latest Eclipse i-Series microscopes, several examples of which will be shown configured for brightfield and fluorescence applications, and results captured on a variety of DS Series cameras controlled by NIS-Elements software. This truly integrated solution has been designed to enhance and streamline all aspects of the image acquisition, analysis and storage process and ensure users gain the maximum performance from their digital imaging systems.
Aperio’s digital pathology systems are built round the company’s patented linear array-based ScanScope slide scanners, which create seamless, true colour whole slide images from an entire glass slide in a matter of minutes. At IBMS, this performance will be exemplified in the shape of the 5-slide ScanScope CS system.
Nikon Instruments will also be displaying the ArcturusXTTM Laser Capture Microdissection and Laser Cutting system. The Arcturus XT combines gentle laser capture microdissection (LCM) and rapid UV laser cutting into integrated platforms that enable pure sample populations to be isolated with unprecedented speed, precision and flexibility.
