BioScan-720 high-resolution slide scanner is used by biologists, pathologists, histologists, professional photographers, amateur photographers, graphic designers, photo labs, universities and schools worldwide.

The BioScan-720 is designed to allow scanning of  half size of a standard 1 x 3 inch glass slide with adapted focus on region of interests (ROI). The Bioscan-720 solves low power, large field of view (FOV), high resolution imaging problems. This tool can be used as a great accessory for super-high resolution scanners for the immediate scan of a large FOV or quick search of ROIs.

This generation of low cost histology scanner scans an area of 36.8 mm x 25.4 mm (1.45″ x 1″) with 3600 dpi or 7200 dpi at 20 seconds. Produces image files which can be saved in a variety of formats including TIFF, JPEG, BMP, GIF, etc. Compatible with all recent versions of PC Windows & Mac based computers.

This instrument will not replace a microscope and digital camera. It is designed to compliment those instruments by doing something they cannot. Namely, capture an ENTIRE histological sample without having to stitch it together. The resulting picture will have the image quality of a 10x objective.
Conventional microscopes equipped with low power objectives and digital cameras typically cannot capture samples larger than 6 mm in diameter.

Better yet, this scanner comes with an advanced software of SilverFast 8 which allows continuously adapting the focus on the new or zoomed in ROI. In addition, there is no uneven illumination or out of focus sample edges, as can be the case with traditional low power image capture techniques.
