Ace Slide Scanning on your ZEISS Axioscan 7

A ZMCC SkillBuilder Workshop

10am to 1pm PST | Virtual

Workshop Overview & Agenda

This workshop will cover all aspects of successfully generating whole slide images utilizing the ZEISS Axioscan 7. A deep dive into software features with application examples will be covered. Current owners of ZEISS Axioscan 7 with any level of operational knowledge will primarily benefit while Z1 customers will have a chance to work with the added benefits on Axioscan 7.

This is a four-hour remote session (with breaks) broadcasted from the ZEISS Microscopy Customer Center (ZMCC) in Dublin, CA.
