The scanning and digitization of microscopy samples with IKOSA ISTIX.
Benefits of IKOSA ISTIX
IKOSA ISTIX is a standalone software based on Fraunhofer IIS’ technology iSTIX® that converts any camera-equipped* microscope into a manual whole-slide scanner. IKOSA ISTIX stitches individual fields of view into a single image with a resolution that is far superior to using low magnification objectives.
The user-friendly connection to your IKOSA account enables you to share your scans, annotate and label objects of interests, and apply image analysis applications based on artificial intelligence to your images.
Make the visual inspection tasks faster, easier and more accurate also for the ones who cannot afford very expensive equipment.
