Aperio introduces digital slide scanner
Aperio has launched the ScanScope AT, the latest addition to the company’s line of slide scanning instruments.

With a 16-inch by 24-inch footprint, the ScanScope AT features a 400-slide capacity with sustained throughput of 30 slides per hour. The AT can scan a 20x slide in 95 seconds, producing a fully prepared image ready for immediate viewing, according to the Vista, Calif.-based provider of digital pathology technology.

In addition, automated tissue finding, focusing and calibration processes yield high first-scan success rates, resulting in reduced cost per slide and lower total cost of ownership due to low re-scan rates and high-quality images, Aperio claimed.
