Hamamatsu's NanoZoomer whole-slide scanners play a critical role in CSHL's Mouse Brain Architecture Project

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 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.
