Scanning modes

1 — Whole Slide Imaging (WSI)

This is a traditional scanning mode in which any changes to the focal plane are pre-calculated with a focal map and the optimally focused images are later captured by motorized XY stage registers by translating across the region of scanning.

This scanning mode employs a single 20X or 40X objective with a combination of a secondary overhead camera for capturing a thumbnail preview of the complete slide, including the barcode area.

Complete slide imaging is preferred over other modes when exhaustive image capturing is required for deferred access.

2 — Live microscopy mode with continuous Z-stack

The system employs dual objective switching systems where

  • 4X objective performs an initial all-slide scan and acts as a navigational map
  • 40X objective is employed to obtain real-time images as the remote user navigates across 4X preview scan

The system offers two focusing modes:

  1. Continuous Focus mode for Tissue section slides suggested for Frozen Section remote reporting
  2. Continuous Z-stack mode for Cytology smear slides suggested for slides with overlapping cells

Live microscopy is preferred over other modes where one requires the ability to start the diagnosis immediately after slide preparation.

3 — Volume scanning

This is a robust scanning mode that captures multiple images from all focal planes in every field. The outcome is essentially a whole slide scan mixed with a pre-captured Z-stack at every position.

Similar to WSI mode, the volume scanning employs a single 20X or 40X objective coupled with a secondary overhead camera to capture a thumbnail preview of the complete slide, which also covers the barcode area.

Volume scanning is preferred when compared to WSI if exhaustive image capture is required for slides with overlapping cells, for example, Pap smear slides, Fine Needle Aspiration Biopsy slides, etc.
