>Three color microarrays
>High density microarrays
In the following application fields:
>Cell and tissue imaging
>Glycomics: glycan arrays
>Proteomics: peptide arrays
>Biomarkers and disease stratification
The InnoScan 1100 AL is a confocal scanner equipped with 3 excitation lasers (488, 532 and 635nm) which are coupled with 3 extremely sensitive photomultiplier tubes (PMT) which allow whole-slide image acquisition. The PMTs are linear over the entire dynamic range (from 1% to 100%) making it easy for the user to set PMT gain for the perfect adjustment of the fluorescence signal levels to avoid saturation.
The InnoScan 1100 AL has the highest resolution on the market (up to 0.5µm/pixel) and uses a real-time autofocus system which adapts to substrate distortion, thus making the entire reading area completely uniform.
The InnoScan scanners are industry renowned for their excellent photometric properties, particularly in terms of sensitivity and signal-to-noise ratio.
Thanks to Extended Dynamic Range mode (XDR), InnoScan scanners have a dynamic range of over 106 and are thus capable of detecting the weakest signals while avoiding saturated spots.
