Description

The PowerScanner is Tecan’s open-format microarray scanner, designed for imaging of regular and high density microarrays of tissues, proteins and nucleic acids.

• High resolution – from 2 to 40 μm, with two configurations available (4 μm system is upgradable to 2 μm)

• Excellent sensitivity – offering outstanding signal-to-noise ratio for reproducible detection

• Large dynamic range – plus multiple scans at varying gain

• Unrivaled versatility – allowing the widest possible range of applications

 

Manufacture Specifications:

Dynamic range

• Real 16 bit TIFF images

• Signal-to-Noise ratio at 2 μm pixel size on 20 x 20 μm  feature area > 2 x 105

• Average spatial crosstalk between spots – < 3 % on high density arrays – < 0.1 % on regular density arrays

• Increase dynamic by normalizing on two gain levels

Scan area dimension

• Max 75 x 22 mm size

• Easy and intuitive graphical definition of scan areas  can be done directly in pre-scan images or in default  slide graphic of the GUI

• Multiple scan areas for multi-pack-array slides can be  defined for breaking down individual assays into small  individual images for storage and analysis
