What Makes a Great Whole Slide Scanner?
Start with high total throughput
Throughput is more than just scan speed. If slides need to be re-scanned it will have a huge negative impact on throughput. A great scanner can handle difficult slides – ones with multiple bar codes, excess mounting media, faint tissue or overhanging cover slips – and therefore deliver higher actual throughput.

Add a flexible platform that can scan any slide size
Often, many slides are non-standard size. Look for a scanner that can image standard, double wide and large slides up to 6″ x 8″, with high throughput.
Make sure it plays well with others
Huron’s scanners output a non-proprietary file format, making it easy to integrate with many popular image management and image analysis packages.
Then choose the right instrument for your needs
