Fluorescence Scanning

Widefield Fluorescence Scanning at 4x, 10x, and 20x (385nm, 440nm, 470nm, 514nm, 555nm, 640nm LED excitation available). Additional magnifications available at higher rates.

  • Fee per 1" x 3" slide is $30.00 for up to two channels (optimal results with sections less than 10 microns, additional channels are available at a higher rate).

Confocal Fluorescence and Brightfield Scanning at 4x and 10x up to 4 channels (405, 488, 561 and 640 excitation available). Additional magnifications available at higher rates.

  • Fee per 1" x 3" slide is $50.00 (rate is higher for sections thicker than 15 microns).

Brightfield Scanning

High Resolution Digital Slide Scanning at 20x and 40x (0.75 NA) Brightfield

Check out these interactive examples:

1. Brightfield scan of multiple H&E stained tissues on 1x3" slide at 20X.

2. Brightfield scan of human tonsil tissue (H&E stained) at 20X.

Brightfield Slide Scanning

  • Fee per 1" x 3" slide is $15.00
  • Fee per 2" x 3" slide is $25.00

Whole slide images are digitally accessible on computer monitors, and the benefits include but are not limited to the following:
