Fast Flasks Scanner

Whether it is a complete system for a complex biological experiment, automation devices for increasing throughput, or inspection systems to catch defects and increase production, we have the products, people, and partners to provide well-engineered solutions for you.

As an example, our Fast Flasks Scanner is a system with a microscope, a computer and a software which provides a fast scanning of different flasks. The RAMM (Rapid Automated Modular Microscope) and one of ASI's XY Stages allow to the user a wide choice of flasks to scan, from Petri dishes to Falcon's F175.

A plugin created under Micro-manager's software can scan one or several flasks and another plugin create a high quality picture of the entire flask.


Example of flasks :  

  • F75
  • F175
  • 96-well microtiter plate
  • SBS
  • 6 well plate
  • Petri dish
  • Microscope slides


Exemples of scanning speed :

F75 4 min 2.6504 µm
8 min 1.638 µm
20 min 0.6555 µm
45 min 0.3262 µm
