We use an Epson Perfection 2450 Photo Scanner. We place the glass slide in
the 35mm holder, place it on the scanner (ensure that back light cover is
off) and scan as you would a 35mm slide.

We also use the scanner for EM negatives, 35mm photos and picture scanning
for Grand Rounds etc.

Subject: [Histonet] Flatbed Scanners for EM negatives

Hi all -

I was just wondering if anyone out in Histoland has any 
recommendations on flatbed scanners that will do a decent job of 
scanning an EM negative.  Our lab uses mostly Macintosh computers 
for imaging.  I will admit that I know very little about scanners.  
I just visited a site that had film scanners that cost in the 
thousands along with flatbed scanners with similar DPI for a couple 

Any information would be greatly appreciated.
