Leica Microsystems Introduces Extra Large Slide Scanning for Digital Pathology

| November 2, 2011

Double and Jumbo Slide Scanning on the Leica SCN400

Wetzlar, Germany. The largest capture area of any line scanner in digital pathology is now possible with the Leica SCN400 and SCN400 F. The latest release in Leica’s Total Digital Pathology portfolio enables the digitization of very large specimens, not possible with any other line scanning digital pathology system.

This development provides a new level of flexibility in digital pathology, enabling users to scan a wide range of samples on a single system. Traditional (26 x 76 mm), double (52 x 76 mm) and now extra-large Jumbo (113 x 76 mm) slides can all be captured in either brightfield or fluorescence using the Leica SCN400 and SCN400 F scanners.

Existing users of the Leica SCN400 digital slide scanner range can benefit from being able to implement large slide scanning, without any hardware changes or physical updates to their scanners.
