Frequently Asked Questions

A fluorescence slide scanner illuminates tissue samples with specific wavelengths of light, causing fluorophores within the sample to emit light at longer wavelengths, which is then captured by a camera to generate high-resolution images for analysis.

Fluorescence scanning offers superior contrast, enabling visualization of specific cellular structures or molecular markers within samples that may be otherwise difficult to discern with traditional brightfield imaging. Additionally, fluorescence scanning allows for multiplexing, enabling simultaneous detection of multiple targets within the same sample.

Fluorescence slide scanners can image various biological samples including tissue sections, cell cultures, microarrays, and protein arrays, allowing for detailed analysis of cellular structures, protein expression patterns, and molecular interactions. These scanners are particularly useful in biomedical research, pathology, drug discovery, and diagnostics.

Fluorescence scanning enables researchers to study cellular processes, biomarker expression, and disease mechanisms with high sensitivity and specificity, advancing understanding of biological systems and facilitating drug discovery. In diagnostics, it aids in identifying disease markers, characterizing tissues, and guiding treatment decisions with enhanced precision and efficiency.

When selecting a fluorescence slide scanner, factors such as resolution, sensitivity, multiplexing capabilities, compatibility with fluorophores, and software features for image analysis and data management should be evaluated to ensure optimal performance and suitability for specific research or diagnostic needs. Additionally, considerations regarding throughput, automation, cost, and support services may influence the decision-making process.
