Hamamatsu's NanoZoomer whole-slide scanners play a critical role in CSHL's Mouse Brain Architecture Project
Date:6/15/2012

BRIDGEWATER, N.J., June 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Hamamatsu's NanoZoomer whole-slide scanners help make Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory's (CSHL) Mouse Brain Architecture Project a success by imaging thousands of mouse brain tissue slices. The Mouse Brain Architecture Project is an ongoing endeavor to map neural connectivity in the mouse brain using a systematic, high-throughput process. This process involves labeling a mouse brain region with suitable neuronal tracers, followed by tissue imaging using Hamamatsu's NanoZoomer2.0-HT whole-slide scanners, and then 3D reconstruction of the scanned 2D images. The project's accumulated images can be found online at http://brainarchitecture.org/mouse/about. New images will be continually added to the website.

Since the project's start in 2009, two NanoZoomer2.0-HT scanners have imaged over 400,000 slide-mounted tissues and proven their reliability. The scanners convert glass slides into digital slides quickly and accurately, generating high-quality digital images. The NanoZoomer scanners allow for fast, robust scanning by leveraging our proprietary designs in sensors, auto-focus implementation, slide-handling and easy to understand and navigate user interface. Other features include a Z-stack function to accommodate thicker tissue samples, copy and share capabilities, secure storage of images, and network and database interface support.

For more information about the NanoZoomer whole-slide scanners, including pricing and delivery time, please call Hamamatsu Corporation at 1-800-524-0504 or visit the company's website, http://sales.hamamatsu.com.
