The PANNORAMIC SCAN II is a medium-capacity digital slide scanner by 3DHISTECH. With its 150-slide capacity and brightfield and fluorescence scanning abilities, it serves the needs of medium-sized to larger research laboratories.
The PANNORAMIC Scan II won the Gold medal at the 2010 International Scanner Contest in the category Image quality – Scan Mixed (40x (0.23-0.25 µm/pixel)
The PANNORAMIC SCAN II can automatically digitize up to 150 slides in one run. It loads and unloads the slides, detects the sample on the slide, reads the barcode and scans the slide in constant high quality.
A New Level of Fluorescence Scanning
9 physical filter cubes and 45 logical fluorescence channels are available. A new camera and the new objective elevate fluorescence scanning to a new level.
New monochrome PCO edge 4.2 bi camera provides even better fluorescence image quality, especially for immunohistochemistry (IHC) applications and opal stainings. The sensitivity of the chip is extended to the 720-750 nanometer range, which reduces exposition time and further improves image quality. Also, the new camera works directly through a USB 3.0 port, no additional graphics card is necessary.
New optional 10x objective reduces fluorescence scanning time and provides further improved image quality.
Exceptional image quality
The PANNORAMIC SCAN II supports the best Carl Zeiss objectives, achieving up to 43x or 86x magnification and 0.087 µm/pixel resolution within the same instrument, along with an advanced FISH scanning technique.
New slide sensor
The new slide sensor ensures that empty slots are automatically skipped during scanning, further accelerating the scanning process.
With its compact size and 150-slide capacity, PANNORAMIC Scan II is well suited to serve medium-sized research laboratories while helping save valuable laboratory space.
Scanner Software for Research
PANNORAMIC Scanners are powered by the PANNORAMIC Scanner Software for Research, which provides versatile, fast and high-quality slide scanning according to the imaging needs of cancer research laboratories, pharmaceutical companies or medical research institutes. Its key features include
- New Graphical User Interface (GUI)
- Scanning profiles for individual slides, multiple scanning locations and separate scanning of TMA slides for flexibility
- Several focus modes, new intensity stitching algorithm, two multilayer scanning options and further improved deconvolution for superior image quality
- Highly adjustable software and hardware settings
- Customizable user interface and scanning workflow
- Built-in slide conversion into the following file formats: DICOM, Tiled TIFF
