High Speed Digital Pathology Slide Scanner

Superior Image Quality
Employing the intricatly designed 3-camera structure, Vieworks' slide scanner LUCEON delivers four different imaging modes.

3-Camera Structure

  • Obtains three differently focused images at once
  • Achieves 4 ㎛ depth of field in a single field of view (FOV)
  • Produces high resolution image at 40x magnification

Four Image Modes

Four Image Modes
Scan mode Extended depth of focus Scan time Image size Optimal application
Best focused layer mode Automatically selects image with best image quality X 30 sec.
(15 mm x 15 mm)
0.4 GB - 0.7 GB
(15 mm x 15 mm)
Histopathology slides
Tri-focal layer merge mode
  • Three individual images are captured and fused real-time
  • Resulting fusion image contains best focused pixels from each individual image

Liquid-based cytology slides
Z-stack mode Z-stack mode
  • High speed Z-stack
  • Adjusts layer spacing in increments of 0.1 ㎛
Dependent on number of layers Dependent on number of layers Cytology smear slides
Tri-focal layer merge Z-stack
  • High speed tri-focal layer merge Z-stack
  • Adjusts layer spacing in increments of 0.1 ㎛
