  • This automated slide scanner microscope is very easy to operate. The system is designed specifically to digitize microscope slides for your research.
  • Your virtual slides are organized in a web-based database where you can view and share your data at any time.
  • Maximize your system uptime: with ZEISS Predictive Service your Axio Scan.Z1 can be monitored remotely and maintenance can be scheduled to your convenience.  

Highlights

Perform fluorescence imaging

Speed, gentle treatment and the optimal wavelength are what counts when it comes to multispectral fluorescence imaging. With Axio Scan.Z1, you acquire up to 9 spectrally separated fluorescence channels with single band filtersets. Or digitize up to five fluorescence channels using three synchronized high-speed filter wheels for excitation, beam splitting and emission. You get highest imaging speed with highest data quality.

Get reproducible data

Your slide scanner microscope Axio Scan.Z1 is designed to generate a high volume of reproducible data - unattended and over long periods of time. Add ZEISS Predictive Service to remotely monitor your system performance and schedule maintenance to your convenience. You increase your system uptime, while highest data security standards are ensured.

Allow your system to grow

The slide scanner Axio Scan.Z1 affords you maximum freedom in the choice of components as well as in controlling your fluorescence imaging. Decide how many slides, what detection modes and what camera you want to use. Then retrofit your microscope as required. Capture a large number of virtual slides and export the images and continue using the data in any way you choose.

Cryohistology of Mineralized Tissue.
Cryohistology of Mineralized Tissue. Multiple rounds of staining and imaging allowed the analysis of unique biological relationships between different labeled structures in mouse femur serial sections. Fluorescent reference markers at the periphery where used to align individual images of the same sections. (A) Mineralized tissue containing mineral labels (green, red) and stained with calcein blue (white), (B) tartrate resistant acid phosphatase (TRAP) stain for osteoclasts (yellow), (C) alkaline phosphatase (red) and DAPI nuclei (blue), and (D) hematoxylin stain.
