Slide scanning service!

We are now accepting samples for drop-off imaging using our NEW TissueGnostics tissue cytometers. 

These widefield and confocal slide scanning microscopes are ideal for taking whole-tissue and whole-coverslip images at high resolution for both colorimetric (H&E, DAB, IHC) and immunofluorecent samples. 

To submit your samples, please submit this form and drop your slides on the table outside of S5-216.

Curious about the image quality?  Contact us using the sample submission form to arange for 1 free example slide scan or to view example data. 

Slides will be scanned on a first come, first served basis. Data will be returned ASAP.
