From Olympus via
dotSlide – digital virtual microscope from Olympus

The Olympus dotSlide is an imaging system for ‘virtual microscopy’. Instead of viewing a specimen through the eyepiece of the microscope, a virtual overview image of the entire slide is displayed in perfect quality on the monitor after the system has scanned the specimen at the required resolution.

Pathologists and researchers will find dotSlide helpful for their everyday work, when:

  • Archiving rare and valuable biological sections
  • Sharing specimen via the web for discussion, presentation or teleconferencing
  • Building online databases for students education
  • Setting up application-oriented reference databases

The individual dotSlide system components have been carefully selected to offer speed, precision and reliability of use. A smooth interaction of microscope, camera, motor stage, computer and software is guaranteed.

Three models are available:

  • dotSlide MD, manual version
  • dotSlide SL, fully automated version, with slide loader
  • dotSlide TMA, with tissue microarray module
