Olympus NanoZoomer RS Digital Pathology System

Automated slide scanning capacity of 6 standard slides or 2 double sizes.
The NanoZoomer series of digital slide scanners convert tissue on glass slides into digital slides at high speed with high resolution and color fidelity. The slides are created with a microscope equivalent magnification of 20x and a maximum spatial resolution of 0.23 microns. Offering the same performance as the larger NanoZoomer in a compact, lower cost design, the NanoZoomer RS uses smaller slide trays that hold either 6 standard slides or 2 double size slides.

Sharing the same data output and formats as the larger NanoZoomer, the digital slides can be stored and distributed over the internet to remote users who access the slides as if operating a real microscope.

Features and Benefits:

* TDI Scanning technology creates 2 billion pixels in 3 minutes.
High speed and high resolution are possible with TDI. Two billion pixels are created in an area of 20mm x 20mm at 20x without the complicated tiling of a regular CCD camera.
* Small footprint
* Affordable cost
* Z-stack scanning for thick samples
* Optional slide tray to hold double size slides
* Remote access through Internet using optional web server and software


Digital slides are becoming an indispensable technology in pathology and the key to the future of laboratory networking, information storage, data mining and pathology research.

* Remote pathology and consultation networks
* Hight quality education of medical students and doctors
* Slide conference
* Integration into laboratory information system
* Research tool for tissue microarray or tissue analysis
