PANNORAMIC 1000 Flash DX is the largest member of 3DHISTECH’s PANNORAMIC DX scanner range. Its unprecedented capacity, its unparalleled throughput and its robust design offer a reliable solution for high-volume whole-slide scanning for large routine pathology laboratories.
The optical architecture of the PANNORAMIC 1000 FLASH DX diagnostic scanner realistically digitizes stained pathological samples in addition to excellent image quality and color fidelity. The scanner can be accessed remotely through the CentralLogService application for easier tracking of daily scanning processes, as well as checking current scanning processes and making statistical analysis. It has been designed not only to scan histological samples, but cytological ones as well.
The PANNORAMIC 1000 FLASH DX is a digital slide scanner fully integrated to routine diagnostic workflow, the finished digital slides appearing next to the related case. CaseManager tracks the state of the scanning process of the slide linking it to the case immediately.
Highest capacity and fastest scanning on the market
The PANNORAMIC 1000 FLASH DX is the largest capacity whole-slide scanner on the market with up to 1000 slides. Slide loading and scanning are fully automated, enabling one-touch, walk-away scanning for a whole day’s needs at a large routine pathology laboratory, speeding up the laboratory workflow and freeing up valuable lab resources. It is also the fastest whole-slide scanner on the market at up to 100 slides per hour (20x objective/40x optical equivalent magnification, 0.24 μm / pixel, 7500 μm focus point distance, 15×15 mm average sample size, two sets of prefilled magazines, single layer local scanning).
Exceptional image quality
The PANNORAMIC 1000 FLASH DX uses the Flash scanning technology for superior image quality and fast scanning. High-resolution imaging is ensured by two separate objectives exchangeable automatically during scanning. Thanks to the high-quality objectives, adapters and 12 MP camera with Xenon Flash illumination, PANNORAMIC 1000 FLASH DX offers exceptional image quality in brightfield scanning. It can achieve up to 41x / 82x optical magnification and 0.242 / 0.121 µm/pixel resolution.
Most efficient slide logistics
In terms of slide logistics, the PANNORAMIC 1000 FLASH DX offers several innovative features. Its magazine panels support the Sakura slide cassettes compatible with several stainer-coverslippers, offering routine pathology laboratories great flexibility. Its robotized loader ensures rapid loading, while slide processing remains flexible, allowing for priority slide handling and scanning in arbitrary order.
Supporting large-format slides
As a unique feature, the PANNORAMIC 1000 FLASH DX also supports large-format slides (has double-width of a standard slide) for compromise-free mixed-batch (standard and large-format slide) scanning. In this case, it can accommodate 840 slides (800 standard and 40 large-format slides).
The PANNORAMIC 1000 FLASH DX is a great choice for large medical institutions looking for a high-throughput and high-quality scanning solution.
PANNORAMIC Diagnostic Scanners are powered by the PANNORAMIC Diagnostic Scanner Software, which provides one-touch, fast and high-quality slide scanning according to the needs of routine pathology laboratories. Its key features include
• Fully automated scanning operation
