The NanoZoomer 2.0-RS slide scanner from Hamamatsu allows the scanning of up to six standard (76mm x 26mm) or two double-size (76mm x 52mm) slides in a variety of modes: manual, semi-automatic, and automatic.
Scanning can be done at 20x (0.46 µm/pixel) and 40x (0.23 µm/pixel) magnification, with scan times as fast as 1 minute 40 seconds for a 20mm by 20mm area at 20x magnification, with 40x magnification increasing the scan time proportionally.
This system allows the generation of high resolution images of the entire slide, allowing image analysis to be done when required by the user, without the risk of missing information during image acquisition, since the entire slide is recorded.
The free NDP.view2 software allows viewing, annotation, and export of scans.
