Fast, Efficient and Reliable Slide Scanner Leica SCN400 for Optimal Histological Examinations

Leica SCN400 Slide Scanner.jpgWetzlar, Germany. With its unprecedented scanning speed and top-quality on-screen imaging, the new Leica SCN400 Slide Scanner offers an alternative to the microscope for the examination of histological samples in pathology, research, and teaching. The Leica custom tailored lens for a digital sensor, specially designed for high-res scans, ensures that the resolution and color fidelity of the image on the screen are just as good as that of the microscope image. Thanks to the Dynamic Focus principle, which keeps the sample in focus for the full duration of the scan, even difficult samples can be effortlessly digitized with the Leica SCN400.

For Everyday Diagnosis: Speed and Efficiency
The Leica SCN400 is able to load and scan up to four specimens at a time. With a scanning rate of 100 secs per 15 x 15 mm at 20x magnification, sample throughput is substantially increased. The matching Autoloader Leica SL801 is capable of scanning up to 384 samples at the same time, overnight if required, offering completely new options for automated operation. The user can keep loading new samples or remove finished scans without interrupting the process. Once a sample has been digitized, it can be easily retrieved, processed and made available to a defined group of users in a database. Thanks to digitization, there are no more problems with bleaching specimens.

Quality Control, Documentation and Storage
The Leica SCN400 provides a quick and inexpensive way of sending digitized samples to associates and colleagues all over the world for mutual discussion, enabling users to obtain second opinions and meet the growing quality requirements in medical diagnosis. Besides saving time and money sending the valuable samples, the risk of broken slides is also eliminated.

New Avenues for Interactive Teaching
The Leica SCN400 opens up new avenues for interactive teaching. Students are able to watch a sample being examined in real time on the monitor. Interesting, rare or classic case studies can be easily and safely stored together with annotations for teaching purposes and retrieved by students via the Internet as needed.

Note: For Research use only in the U.S.A. and the People’s Republic of China.
