Fluorescent Whole Slide Imaging

Aperio VERSA

The Apiro Versa 200 platform from Leica specializes in digital imaging and analysis of tissue sections and tissue microarrays. The advantage of this system is that it offers consistent, standardized, and objective imaging and quantification of whole slides and microarrays. Its automated slide holder and robotic arm can manage up to 200 slides at a time, managing all aspects of imaging for you. The resulting images are very high resolution, and can be exported in a variety of file formats. The system's software is able to detect tissue sections right on the slide and can automatically rescan them at higher magnification. The quantification software is trainable, and a number of the built-in assays are FDA approved. The Aperio Versa is able to image in 6 standard channels (Click here to view filter information). NOTE: Only one set of exposure criteria per channel can be applied to any slide. Do not stain multiple sections on the same slide with different antibodies. We will be forced to run such slide(s) through as separate slides, which will result in the user being charged for more than one slide.
