Summary

uScope Navigator v4.5 introduces image stacking or multi-layer scanning which allows you to scan a region of interest at multiple focus points and combine them into multiple whole slide images (each on a different focal plane).

The Deep Zoom image viewer has been updated to provide a focus control which selects the different layers of the image stack.

Multi-Layer Deep Zoom Viewer (Nominal Focus Level)

Multi-Layer Deep Zoom Viewer (Lowered Focus Level)
Multi-Layer Viewer (Lowered Focus Level)

Details

The focus control simulates the effect of adjusting the focus on a traditional microscope. Moving the focus control up is similar to moving the objective away from the specimen which moving the control down simulates moving the objective closer to the specimen.

As you move the focus control, you'll immediately see the effects of the change in focus on the scanned region.

Note
Differences in the focus of the various layers of the scanned images may cause image stitching to combine adjacent fields in slightly different locations.
