Manual panoramic microscopy with iStix®

23.10.2017 | Looking for partners to further develop our low-cost alternative to whole slide image scanners

iStix® stitches together individual microscopy images in real time and aligns their content to create a continuous panoramic view. Its main areas of application are in various disciplines of research-based medicine and in biology. But it would also be suitable for use in other fields of activity that involve working with microscopy images. Examples include materials science and quality assurance, where iStix® would be a useful tool for examining samples of new materials or inspecting damage at a microscopic level.
