With its new detection system, the InnoScan 910 has the highest resolution and reading speed on the market. This user-friendly, two-color scanner is the ideal tool for reading current and future high-density microarrays.
Characterized by its simplicity of use, competitive price and superior image quality, the InnoScan 910 is the ideal tool for scanning most high density microarrays currently available on the market.
Given the size of the images obtained (5.74 GB to read an entire slide at 1 µm resolution), Mapix image analysis software has been specially designed to handle large files.
InnoScan 910 is ideal for reading high density microarrays currently available on the market:
In the following application fields:
Like the InnoScan 710, the InnoScan 910 uses a real-time autofocus system that offers the advantage of making it adaptable to substrate distortion, thus making the entire reading area completely uniform. Thanks to XDR mode (Extended Dynamic Range), InnoScan scanners have a dynamic range over 106 and are thus capable of detecting the lowest signals while avoiding saturation.
The InnoScan scanners are well known for their excellent photometric properties, particularly in terms of sensitivity and signal-to-noise ratio.
