This is an upright BX61 automated microscope with Scanview, Applied Spectral Imaging's scanning platform for various fully automatic scanning applications, which can take 8 slides. The system is equipped with a 12 Bit camera, which functions in two separate modes - direct view (Normal image acquisition) and Fringe mode - which is the spectral mode. The camera has a VDS 2/3 inch CCD chip, is monochrome (B&W) and is not cooled. The pixel size is 6.7 micron (in calculation don't forget to multiple the magnification factor) and the resolution is 1280x1024 pixels.

Although this is a very advanced imaging system it is also excellent to take single images from a slide. It has a unique aquisition mode that allows to convert 3D stacks into 2D images using only in focus signal
