“ Ease of use, speed and image quality ”

Scanner Microarray InnoScan 710 Two-color.


Characterised by its ease-of-use, speed and image quality, InnoScan 710 is the ideal tool for routine microarray reading.







General Description:

  • Speed:with its patented XY motorisation, the InnoScan 710 is the fastest scanner on the market with adjustable reading speed from 10 to 35 lines per second (capable of scanning slides at 10 μm/pixel in less than 4 minutes).
  • Reliable and traceable results:with a barcode reader, InnoScan 710 provides accurate control of acquired images. InnoScan 710 is supplied with a validation slide and associated MAPIX software that verifies scanner performance.
  • Routine use:InnoScan 710 is a low cost, portable scanner capable of reading medium density microarrays at a maximum resolution of 3 µm/pixel.


InnoScan 710 is ideal for reading low or medium density microarrays, both commercial or home made:

  • Oligo arrays
  • BAC arrays
  • Protein arrays
  • Special slides

In the following application fields:

  • Functional genomics: CNV, genotyping, DNA methylation.
  • Proteomics: Proteins expression profiling.
  • Clinical research: Cytogenetics & IVF. Diseases stratification.
  • Industry application: Food contaminant investigations. New drug impact reseach.


InnoScan 710 is a confocal scanner equipped with 2 extremely sensitive photomultipliers (PMT), linear over the entire operating range (from 0 to 100%). This makes it easy for the user to set PMT gains to adjust the fluorescence signal levels for the 2 colors (particularly the saturation level and equilibration of the 2 channels).

InnoScan 710 has a special feature of using a real-time autofocus system that offers the advantage of making it adaptible to substrate distortion, thus making the entire reading area completely uniform. InnoScan scanners are well known for their excellent photometric properties, particularly in terms of sensitivity and signal-to-noise ratio.

Thanks to XDR mode (Extended Dynamic Range), InnoScan scanners have a dynamic range over 106 and then are capable to detect the smallest spots avoiding saturated spots.
