IKOSA ISTIX is a versatile whole slide viewing program that can be used in a wide range of research fields. This advanced WSI application finds use in various clinical and lab settings.
The IKOSA ISTIX whole slide imaging solution is suited for the acquisition of high-quality microscopy images for the purposes of multiple research disciplines like:
Put the capabilities of digital whole slide imaging to work!
Whole slide imaging (WSI) involves the scanning of glass slides with tissue sections obtained from a microscope source or a scanning hardware device. WSI enables the conversion of conventional glass slides into high-quality digital images and facilitates easier image storage, file sharing and digital image analysis.
Specialized WSI software is used for the acquisition of images and the viewing of virtual slides. High -resolution images of tissue sections are eventually processed by the means of advanced microscopy image analysis software to extract reliable quantitative data. This enables the measurement and quantification of biomarkers, cellular and tissue components. WSI is widely employed in clinical and non clinical pathology for the purposes of diagnosis, consultation and remote interpretation, clinical trials, quantification of features and vocational training.

Reasons to use IKOSA ISTIX
IKOSA ISTIX is a standalone software based on Fraunhofer IIS’ technology iSTIX® that converts camera-equipped* microscopes into manual whole-slide scanners. Thanks to the smooth scanning process at work, IKOSA ISTIX stitches individual fields of a view in order to create a single high quality digital image. The acquired whole-slide images have a resolution far more superior to using low magnification objectives.
More about IKOSA ISTIX
Virtual slide datasets acquired with ISTIX can be used for the purposes of advanced microscopy image analysis and quantification with different online and offline tools. The user-friendly connection to your IKOSA account enables you to share your virtual slides, annotate and label objects of interests, and utilize multiple microscopy image analysis applications based on artificial intelligence to your digital images.
IKOSA ISTIX makes visual inspection tasks faster, easier and more accurate also for the ones who cannot afford very expensive equipment.

More about IKOSA ISTIX
Thanks to its excellent compatibility with different optical microscope devices, this unique whole-slide imaging solution offers superb performance when acquiring brightfield and darkfield microscopy images.
IKOSA ISTIX is a versatile WSI software solution which allows the scanning of whole slide datasets in different virtual formats. The integrated slide stitching, zooming and recording options enable you to create multi-resolution whole-slide images in an instant. IKOSA ISTIX supports multiple image file formats including “flat” formats like PNG, JPEG, BMP and TIFF as well as more advanced “pyramid” formats like AperioSVS, ZIF, VMscope whole slide (*.VSF) and DeepZoom (*.DZI).
On top of that, multiple advanced features like live view, batch export, ruler measurements in live-feed, annotations with basic geometric shapes and regions of interest export can be used on the ISTIX interface.
