How do you get a Specimen to an Expert on the Other Side of the World?


Are you still shipping your microscope slides using expensive, overnight delivery services? What if there was a faster, more reliable way to share those slides with experts around the globe in just a few minutes? Do you think the solution will be break-the-bank expensive? If you do you should check out the uScope Digital Whole Slide Scanner.

What is a uScope?

The uScope is a fully automated whole slide scanner. You select the region of interest you wish to scan and the uScope does the rest. The uScope has a scan speed of around six minutes for a 15mm x 15mm region. Scanned fields are combined into a large, beautiful image that can be saved in a variety of formats (TIFF, PNG, JPG, BMP) to suit your needs.

How is the uScope Different from Other Whole Slide Scanners?

Traditional whole slide scanners are large, bulky and expensive. Hundreds of slides from dozens of labs are queued up and scanned in order — while you wait and wait for your images. The uScope family of whole slide scanners are small, portable, and cost-effective. The uScope enables small labs and individuals to scan their own slides without waiting for access to the "big" scanner.

Is it Easy to Share Scanned Slides?

Yes it is! Once your slide is scanned, the uScope provides plenty of ways to share it with others around the world.

  1. Send the RAW image fields (via file sharing service) and let your peers process and analyze them.
  2. Create and share a tiled TIFF file (via file sharing service). Tiled TIFF images can be opened using built-in image software on Macs and PCs.
  3. Create a deep zoom image to publish via your personal or corporate web site.
