Histolopathology Slide Scanner

The CatSkanner is designed to allow scanning of whole mounted histological samples attached to standard 1"x3" cover slipped glass slides.
It solves low power, large field of view and high resolution imaging problems.
It captures specimens as large as 36 mm in diameter.
By scanning the entire sample slide in one pass, there is no uneven illumination or out of focus sample edges, as can be the case with traditional low power image capture techniques.
The CatSkanner holds two 1"x3" glass slides.
