RE: [Histonet] Image analysis and slide scanning machine


Chromavision does this, as well as the Zeiss Mosaix program.  I use the 
Mosaix to photograph the entire slide by taking a series of individual 
shots, (the program does this automatically, moving the stage to your set 
coordinates) and putting them back together like mosaic tiles.  The photo 
has impeccable clarity - you'd never know it wasn't one whole photograph. 
I do image analysis for IHC (apoptosis, proliferation, microvessel 
density) as well as measuring areas of tumor growth, necrosis, etc.- it's 
a great system - I'm impressed.

Hello everyone,
Years ago, I heard of a machine that you could load an entire slide into,
scan the slide and then do image analysis on the tissue.  I have no idea 
made this machine or even how to search for such a thing on the internet 
the histonet archives).  If anyone has the name of this company, can 
please let me know.
I am currently doing measurements of pancreatic islets as well as
measurements of whole mouse pancreas'.  I am needing to take 4-6 pictures
per pancreas in order to do this, and it is very time consuming (these
studies have up to 90 animals in them).  I need a quicker and easier way 
do this!
