PathScan Enabler 5Low Power Histological and Geological Slide Scanner

The PathScan Enabler 5 is the original low cost brightfield and polarized light whole slide scanner

Obtain ultra-high resolution images from 1 x 3 glass tissue slides in about a minute – without a microscope! The new PathScan Enabler 5 is a perfect compliment to any microscope imaging workstation.

It is the latest version of our patented PathScan series digital slide scanners. The original PathScan Enabler helped create the market for personal digital slide scanning over 23 years ago. With the new intuitive design, the PathScan Enabler 5 allows scanning of whole mounted histological samples attached to standard 1 x 3 inch cover slipped glass slides. The new optional polarizing holder allows scanning of polished rock thin sections attached to 1 x 2 inch glass slides in both brightfield and polarized light!

The PathScan Enabler 5 solves low power, large field of view, and high resolution imaging problems. Scan area is 24.3 x 36.5 mm, resulting in stunning, incredible images up to 14,320 x 9,522 pixels! The PathScan Enabler 5 holds two (2) 1 x 3 inch glass slides and includes simple to use software for both Windows and Mac computers. The polarizing holder accepts a single geological 1 x 2 inch glass slide. Image files are saved in .tiff or .jpg formats. The PathScan Enabler 5 is designed not to replace, but complement, a microscope and digital camera. The entire sample is scanned with an even, clear background and makes a perfect overview image that can be viewed in a variety of software programs. Image scans are equivalent to 4X microscope resolution.MouseConventional microscopes equipped with low power objectives and digital cameras typically cannot capture samples larger than 6 mm in diameter. The PathScan Enabler 5 captures specimens as large as 36.5 mm in diameter! Better yet, there is no uneven illumination or out of focus sample edges, as can be the case with traditional low power image capture techniques.

uSCOPE MXII Digital Pathology Slide Scannerarrow12uSCOPE MXII Digital Pathology Slide Scanner

Ultra low-cost, extremely portable, microscope slide scanner.

Inexpensively scan 1 x 3" microscope slides for professional or personal use.

The uSCOPE MXII Digital Microscope Slide Scanner is a small, compact, portable digital desktop slide scanner for professional research applications that you can setup and install in your home, office or workplace laboratory. It's so easy to use, you will be up and running in less than 10 minutes. Ease of use, portability and high quality images are benefits of owning a uSCOPE MXII for a fraction of the cost of other scanners. It is the only low cost, high performance USA made microscope slide scanner on the market!

  • MXII 40x Capillary
  • MXII 40x Saliva
  • MXII Corn, Stitched
  • MXII Daphina, Stitched
  • MXII Dragonfly Wing, Stitched
  • MXII Earthworm, Stitched
  • MXII Honeybee Worker Leg, Stitched
  • MXII Pinestem, Stitched
  • MXII Zebra Fish, Crosssection

Designed specifically to automatically create large image montages from stitching multiple points of view, it captures images from standard glass slides and sends them to your PC. You can interactively browse slides with full control of focus, image processing, and location. You can also scan regions of interest creating fully focused image sets. Capture individual images, or scan slides for consultation, publication or automated analysis. Its unique slide holder design allows oversize slides and older thick slides to be captured in minutes.

The uSCOPE MXII captures your entire sample or multiple regions of interest. This digital workhorse offers unprecedented capability in an amazing small form factor. Actual size is a little more than 4 x 6 x 8 inches! A little larger than most external hard drives, the uSCOPE MXII delivers high-resolution digital images from standard or oversized 1 x 3 inch glass slides. LED illumination and a HD 1920 x 1080 color camera allows individual image capture and or mosaic image stitching. User-defined filter sequences enable you to apply multi-step image enhancement filters (brightness, contrast, look-up tables, gamma control, sharpness, smoothing, and flat field correction) to captured images or image sets. Deep zoom image sets, which allow you to zoom in and out and navigate large slide scans, are easily created.

Because of its small size, the uSCOPE MXII is highly portable. The industry-standard USB interface makes it easy to plug in and start capturing images at work or on the road. It easily interfaces with standard desktop or laptop PC's and allows you to view and capture slide images in a wide variety of environments. Supplied with a built-in viewer, proprietary images can also be exported as PNG, JPEG or TIFF file formats.

Available in Three Models

The uSCOPE MXII-20 comes with a 20x/0.40NA 160 mm conjugate objective. This model is suited to applications where very high depth of field is required. It has a wider depth of field than higher power models of the uSCOPE MXII, so tissue samples and smears can be thicker with more of the image in focus. This unit is able to produce very high quality images while browsing or scanning an area of interest. It easily interfaces with standard Windows based desktop or laptop PCs and allows you to view and capture a slide in a wide variety of formats. LED illumination with HD 1920 x 1080 color camera.

The uSCOPE MXII-40 comes with a 40x/0.65NA 160 mm conjugate objective. This model is able to produce very high quality images while browsing or scanning an area of interest. It easily interfaces with standard Windows based desktop or laptopp PCs and allows you to view and capture a slide in a wide variety of formats. LED illumination with HD 1920 x 1080 color camera.

The uSCOPE MXII-60 comes with a 60x/0.85NA 160 mm conjugate objective. This model is suited to applications where very high resolution and edge definition are required. The uSCOPE MXII-60 has a narrower depth of field than lower power models of the uScopeMXII. So, tissue samples and smears must be flatter or thinner to avoid lengthy autofocus and longer scan times. This unit is able to produce very high-quality images while browsing or scanning an area of interest.
