Discover the New Possibilities in Automated Petrography

A Revolutionary Technology for Polarization Microscopy

Accelerated. Automated. Correlated.
  • Rapid scanning of up to 100 slides in a single run
  • Automated scan performance for continuous 24/7 operation
  • Intuitive scan profiles with easy to use functionalities
  • Fast switching among brightfield and polarization imaging modes

A Variety of Super-fast Imaging Modes

Unique Technology for Polarization Microscopy

The innovative motorized stage and image acquisition system allows automatic switching between different brightfield imaging modes to adapt to the different requirements of your applications. All data processing occurs inline to allow for optimized datasets of a manageable size ready for analysis, transfer or distribution once data acquisition finishes.

  • Improved sample detection and focusing
  • Circular and linear polarization now available
  • Intensely advanced scan speeds in all brightfield imaging modes

Visualize complex digitized petrographic data

Multichannel acquisition of geological thin section. Different forms of polarization illumination can be used to highlight different features. Plane polarized light (PPL) shows overall crystal color, habit and pleochroism. Crossed polarized light (XPL) at multiple orientations allows for extinction angle and birefringence to be assessed. Circular polarization allows for maximum birefringence to be observed regardless of grain orientation. All channels are aligned using powerful computational algorithms during acquisition, making resulting data perfect for subsequent segmentation and analysis.

  • Visualize complex digitized petrographic data
  • Flexible acquisition of complex petrographic data
  • Automated machine-learning based mineral classification using a single ZEN Intellesis model,

Taking rocks to the cloud

A revolution in the world of digital petrography. Discover the new possibilities with Axioscan 7.

Polarization microscopy provides a broad set of challenges when preparing to build automated workflows for sample digitization. These unique challenges, broadly arise from the orientation dependence and can be tackled using a combination of specialized equipment, automation, image processing and machine-learning based analysis techniques. In this technology note we will give an overview of the advanced technologies developed to tackle these challenges, including automated multichannel acquisition, motorized polarizers and analyzers, and circular polarization. It will also cover how these techniques are integrated into ZEISS microscopy platforms, including the Axioscan 7 digitisation platform.
