New Digital Slide Scanner Launched by Hamamatsu Photonics

Mar 02 2023

Hamamatsu Photonics, a global leader in imaging technology, announces the release of the new NanoZoomer® S20MD Slide scanner system (C16300-21MDEU).

This exciting new device was developed to provide clinical pathologists additional flexibility in their laboratory workflow. It completes the existing NanoZoomer line-up of MD models, by offering a medium scale digital pathology routine, ideal for priority scanning during peak production.

This ultra-fast whole slide scanner can scan approximately a slide/30 seconds in 20x or 40x mode, allowing pathologists a leaner and more efficient workflow. Additionally, it gives them the possibility to work alongside their existing Sakura stainer and film coverslipper thanks to a new optional adaptor.

The NanoZoomer S20MD also offers excellent image quality as it is designed with the same pixel pathway as high-end model, NanoZoomer S360MD Slide scanner system. Moreover, the image acquisition software (NZAcquireMD) including the image viewing software (NZViewMD) allows users to easily create, view and perform quality checks on whole slide images.

Key Features of the NanoZoomer S20MD Slide scanner system

  • High-Speed Scanning: Approx. 30 Sec (20x/ 40x mode)
  • Rapid Throughput: 20 slides in 15 min
  • Compact
  • Selectable Scanning Modes
  • Quality Check
  • Flexible Slide Racks
  • High Quality Images
  • Regulatory Compliant: IVDR(EU), UKCA(UK) and IvDO(CH)

Behind the hardware and software, clinical customers will find trained specialists supporting them through the adoption of new workflows. In fact, trainings and technical support are in place to ensure a smooth transition whether it is integrating a new scanner model into their workflow or transforming from analogue to digital workflow.

Committed to the digital pathology market for over fifteen years, Hamamatsu Photonics is driven to offer the good quality solutions while complying with the latest medical regulations. The Company, known for its market-leading photonics technology, built and integrated its knowhow into the NanoZoomer Slide scanner system providing a stamp of reliability.

Enhance your scalability by complementing your lab with this new whole slide scanner
