The MMI CellScan allows you to scan full resolution digital slides, to annotate your selection, and to cut cells by laser microdissection - all in one system!
In addition, the MMI CellScan be used as a stand-alone Slide Scanner supporting all functionalities of your microscope. Using the 20x objective of your microscope and our high sensitivity CMOS camera, an area of 15 mm x 15 mm is scanned in less than 75 seconds, which corresponds to 10 minutes for a full slide (75 mm x 25 mm). In addition, the individual focus map ensures that every single image is acquired in the optimal focus point. Thus, the whole slide image is perfectly in focus, even with uneven sample slides.
The image is saved as BigTIFF at full resolution for analysis, documentation and archiving. The digital slides can be accessed with most Slide Viewers. Within the CellScan software, annotations can be applied directly in the scanned slide. Since the system provides absolute positioning and accurate sample localization, the annotations can be precisely transferred to the CellCut to excise the selected cells. The MMI CellScan is compatible with all MMI products, with all microscopy objectives as well as with all standard microscopy imaging modules, including fluorescence.
