Uscope GX-model polarising slide scanner

The uSCOPE GX is a geologically polarising full slide imager (WSI) of high resolution, perfect for glass slides of 1 x 2in or 1 x 3in. It generates high-quality brightfield and polarised light images (at any polarisation angle between 0° and 90°). Thin pieces of rock have never looked so good! In a form factor suitable for desktop PC users, this polarising digital whole slide imager provides unparalleled functionality.Due to its smaller size, the USCOPE GX is easily portable. The industry-standard USB interface makes it much easier to plug and start capturing images at work or on the road. Readily interfaces with high-performance or standard desktop and laptop PCs.Collect, display and export full specimens or areas of interest in a wide range of formats.. Operating with either a high definition 10x or 20x strain-free Plan Achromatic objective the uSCOPE GX provides unparalleled clarity at a reasonable cost.

Collect, display and export full specimens or areas of interest in a wide range of formats.. Operating with either a high definition 10x or 20x strain-free Plan Achromatic objective the uSCOPE GX provides unparalleled clarity at a reasonable cost. This is the only low-cost, high-resolution geological scanner in the industry.

The USCOPE Navigator program makes it much easier to identify an area of interest from your geological slides. Images may be produced without polarisation (brightfield) or polarisation between 0° and 90°. You can easily secure individual images or select an area of interest for scanning. Areas are scanned using the parameters that you select. You can even produce and extend your own multi-step image analysis profiles to change the intensity of the image, improve contrast, or perform gamma correction. The uSCOPE GX polarising WSI is so simple to use, all your friends will ask to borrow it – but don't let them. They may never return it!

Available in Two Models

The uSCOPE GX-10 comes with a 10x/0.25NA objective.

The uSCOPE GX-20 comes with a 20x/0.40NA objective.

Features and Benefits

  • Overview and Objective Cameras – The uSCOPE GX has an objective 5 megapixel camera for scanning and an overview camera for navigating.
  • Automatic Focus – Images are automatically focused using configurable focus algorithms.
  • Portability – At a weight of 6 lbs., the uSCOPE GX is highly portable.
  • Full Control of Imaging Parameters – The following user filters in the uSCOPE Navigator software give you complete control over image processing and picture correction.
    • Blur, Gaussian Blur, Bilateral Smoothing
    • Conservative Smoothing, RGB Colour Correction
    • Brightness, Contrast, Gamma
    • Flat Field Correction, Flatted Background
    • Median, Sharpen, Gaussian Sharpen
    • Lookup Table, Colour Lookup Table
  • Personal Digital Polarizing Microscope Scanner – Most digital microscopes are shared between many researchers. That's not the case with the uSCOPE GX. The uSCOPE GX is designed and priced for the individual user.
  • Self-Contained Hardware – The uSCOPE GX is a self-contained digital polarizing whole slide imager (WSI) microscope. All the electronics, cameras, stage, and optics are contained in a device about the size of an external disk drive. The only thing you need is a laptop or desktop computer.
  • Relaxed Environmental Requirements – The uSCOPE GX is very tolerant of typical office and lab environments. Special, weighted tables are not required to capture clear, vibration-free images.
  • Easy-to-Use – Users can easily setup and install the uSCOPE GX without a team of IT specialists. Most users can take the uSCOPE GX from the box to viewing slides in under 10 minutes. Special file servers, network interfaces, and ultra high-performance desktop computers are not required.
  • Cloud Computing Compatible – The uSCOPE GX provides industry-standard image formats that can be used with cloud-based computing services.
  • Flexible API for Developers – The .Net compatible API allows developers direct hardware control of the uSCOPE GX. In addition, the API provides support for a variety of image enhancement filters. Developers can use the API to integrate support for the uSCOPE GX into existing analysis or imaging tools.
