Scanning Modes

Live Microscopy Mode for Rapid on-site evaluation
#1 - Live Microscopy mode with continuous Z-stack
Uses dual objective switching system where
  • 4X objective does an initial whole slide scan and serves as a navigation map
  • 40X objective is used to fetch real-time images as the remote user navigates across 4X preview scan
Offers 2 focusing modes
  • Continuous Focus for Tissue section slides (recommended for Frozen Section remote reporting)
  • Continuous Z-stack for Cytology smear slides (recommended for any slide with overlapping cells)
Live microscopy is preferred over other modes where one needs the ability to start the diagnosis immediately after slide preparation
Whole Slide Imaging WSI with AI enabled tools
#2 - Whole Slide Scanning (WSI)

The classical scanning mode where the variation of a focal plane if any is pre-calculated with a focus map and later the motorized XY stage captures optimally focused images by translating across the region of the scanning.

Uses single 40X or 20X objective combined with a secondary overhead camera for capturing preview (thumbnail) of the full slide including the barcode area.

Whole slide imaging is preferred over other modes when exhaustive image capture is needed for deferred access.

Volume Scanning Mode for telecytology
#3 - Volume Scanning

An all powerful scanning mode where multiple images covering all focal planes are captured at every field. The end result is essentially a whole slide scan mixed with pre-captured Z-stack at every position.

Similar to WSI mode, Volume scanning uses a single 40X or 20X objective combined with a secondary overhead camera for capturing preview (thumbnail) of the full slide including the barcode area.

Volume scanning is preferred over WSI when exhaustive image capture is needed for slides with overlapping cells such as Fine Needle Aspiration Biopsy slides, Pap smear slides etc.
