How We Scan


HistoGeneX has adapted the latest scanning technology to obtain greater resolution for fluorescence and brightfield images while improving turnaround times. To ensure standardization, our technologists adhere to a work procedure that is CAP accredited to generate these digital high-resolution images. These include processes to calibrate digital capture platforms to standardize and ensure reproducibility among microscopes, software and digital pathology platforms.

We currently use the latest generation scanner, the the AxioScan Z1 fluorescent and brighfield scanner, which we have tested and thoroughly evaluated.

Working with our sponsors, we have used digital pathology to provide secure backup of glass slides, and increase transportation of biomarker content when shipment of biological materials is constrained. Sponsors frequently avail themselves of the expertise of our pathologists and our imaging scientists.
