Slide Scanning

We are pleased to offer a high speed and high-resolution digital slide scanning service to professionals and organizations. Using one of the largest throughput scanners available on the market, the 3DHistech PANNORAMIC® 1000 RX scanner, we can guarantee the best digital images for your project.

What are the benefits of our slide scanning service?

  • All the convenience of digital pathology without the high equipment costs
  • High quality images but without the large file sizes often associated with scanned images
  • A broad range of scanning options, including 20x, 40x, 80x, Z stack and extended focus
  • One of the few laboratories in the UK that can offer 100x water immersion scanning

How does the slide scanning service work?

There are two ways to access our slide scanning service:

  1. Simply send your glass slides to NationWide Laboratories and you will receive them back along with the high-resolution digital images
  2. Alternatively, submit your specimens or cytology preparations and let us process your samples for you through our histology laboratory. We will then produce the high-resolution digital images and return these to you, along with the glass slides as required

Get in touch with the team today to arrange slide scanning for your next project.

Projects & Research

At NationWide Laboratories, our interest does not stop at the point of diagnosis; we are also keenly involved in projects and research within veterinary medicine. We regularly contribute to the latest research publications based upon both the samples that our clients send us and also in collaboration with other partners.

Our interest in specialist methodologies has also given us the capabilities to expand our validated services to include special serology and drug monitoring, and virtually any type of esoteric assay, some of which may require complicated and sophisticated sample preparation or assay procedures. We are proud to be able to contribute to such a wide scope of projects.

Additionally, all of our staff are trained to current Good Laboratory Practices (GLP) standards and are fully compliant in the preparation of Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) and protocols. Our systems allow full traceability of materials and equipment used, enabling us to fully support regulatory submissions.

Our extensive resources and expertise enable us to successfully carry out research work for multiple clients, offering quick turnaround times and a flexible approach throughout a range of customised projects.

If you are interested in efficient and reliable laboratory support for your research, please reach out to us and our expert team will assist you.
