[Histonet] RE: Slide scanner for Fluorescence

From:"Melissa Gonzalez"

Look up CompuCyte. I recently went to one of their talks, and their
technology is amazing. Pricey, but you get a lot out of the system. It
is based on laser scanning instead of traditional arc lamps and it has
the capability to load slides for overnight/weekend runs. In addition to
images, you can also acquire graphs and population statistics about your
stained slides. 
It is the first system for fluorescent based applications that I've seen
that is so sensitive.

Subject: [Histonet] Slide scanner for Quantum Dot Fluorescence

Hello All,
  I am looking for a slide scanner (captures images of entire tissue
sections on slides) that has fluorescent capabilities.  We currently
have an Aperio slide scanner for our routine light microscopy slides, we
are very happy with it, but we will be branching out into Quantum Dots
and would like a scanner that can do the same thing for
fluorescent-stained slides.  Does anyone have any ideas or
