Here is How it Works

Send us up to 100 sample slides suitable for brightfield microscopy. We will digitize your slides in high quality using the slide scanning microscope ZEISS Axio Scan.Z1. Your virtual slides as well as templates and workflows are stored on your servers using ZEISS ZEN Data Storage. You and your students easily access and work with your virtual slides using the free of charge ZEISS ZEN Data Explorer either via browser or iOS/Android app.
