CellScan – Whole Slide Imaging
The MMI CellScan allows you to scan full resolution digital slides, to analyze your slides, to annotate interesting areas and to archive your digital images.
The MMI CellScan is available as stand-alone Slide Scanner supporting all functionalities of your microscope. Alternatively, you can combine the CellScan module with laser microdissection to scan, to annote & select, and to cut your cells – all in one system!
“The MMI CellScan supports us in our daily work: this tool documents our tissue sections in high resolution and it fully integrates in our laser microdissection workflow. We especially appreciate that we can annotate directly in the image thus saving hands-on time at the instrument.”

Slide Scanner Technology
The MMI CellScan provides you with all functions of a Slide Scanner.
Using the 20x objective of your microscope and our high sensitivity CMOS camera, an area of 15 mm x 15 mm is scanned in less than 1 minute, which corresponds to less than 7 minutes for a full slide (75 mm x 25 mm). In addition, the individual focus map ensures that every single image is acquired in the optimal focus point. Thus, the whole slide image is perfectly in focus, even with uneven sample slides.
The image is saved as BigTIFF at full resolution for analysis, documentation and archiving. The digital slides can be accessed with most Slide Viewers. Within the CellScan software, annotations can be applied directly in the scanned slide. Since the system provides absolute positioning and accurate sample localization, the annotations can be precisely transferred to the CellCut to excise the selected cells.
The MMI CellScan is compatible with all MMI products, with all microscopy objectives as well as with all standard microscopy imaging modules, including fluorescence.
