20x scan, 1 month temporary server storage
Whole digital slide scanning allows online viewing of your entire section with up to 40x zoom from an original scan using a 20x objective. The current instrument is for brightfield scanning. The system focuses several points over the entire tissue providing unprecedented detail. Slide scanning is an excellent means to store slides, share with colleagues, or create publication quality snap-shots. Slide scanning can replace hours photographing regions on a microscope. Several image analysis programs are available from nucleus and membrane staining to color colocalization and deconvolution macros. Server image storage is available for 1 month and transfer to your storage media (server, DVD, USB) is required unless prior arrangements made.

The major goal of this facility is to provide tissue microarray (TMA) capabilities from processing samples into donor blocks and evaluating regions of interest to TMA design, construction, sectioning, and staining. Any stain that can be used on a paraffin section can be performed on a TMA slide. Fees for TMA construction are based on technical support time and supplies. Individuals can also be trained to construct their own arrays.
