Immunofluorescent Slide Scanning - 10420 MRB IV


The Ariol® SL-50 platform from Leica specializes in digital imaging and analysis of tissue sections and tissue microarrays. The advantage of this system is that it offers consistent, standardized, and objective quantification of whole slides and microarrays. Its automated slide holder and robotic arm can manage up to 50 slides at a time. All imaging is done for you. The resulting images are very high resolution, and can be exported in a variety of file formats. The system’s software is able to detect tissue sections right on the slide and can automatically rescan them at higher magnification. The quantification software is trainable, and a number of the built-in assays are FDA approved. The Ariol SL-50 is able to image in the following channels:

Channel  
UV:   DAPI / Hoechst / Alexa 305
Green:    GFP / FITC / Cy2 / Alexa488
Red:   mCherry / TRITC / Cy3 / Alexa546
Far Red:    Cy5 / Alexa647
Infra Red:   Cy7 / Alexa750
