  • NeoScan

NeoScan features the most advanced properties for fast and precise z-scanning. Instead of using traditional motorized means such as stepper motors or piezo devices, NeoScan uses a proprietary PhaseView optical assembly for 3D scanning, integrating the latest advances of digital lens technology for accurate and highly repeatable z-steps.

NeoScan is supplied with GUI software QTImage. An optional API/ SDK is provided for microscopy automated systems with comprehensive 3D acquisition tools.

Z Range & Z-Step performance

Z range and Z step are objective dependant, see typical performance for standard objective magnification with 1X coupler.
For any other magnificatio, the following formulas can be applied:
Z Range = 23mm / (G_Obj)2
Z Step = Z Range / 2000
Z step accuracy = 1%
Z step repeatability = 0.3%
Scanning speed up to 24 images / second

Mag : NA
Z Range (μm) Z Resolution (μm)
5X / 0.10 920 0.46
10X / 0.25 230 0.12
