Hamamatsu NanoZoomer RS Digital Pathology System

Hamamatsu 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
