Slide scanning sample submission form

As of January 2, 2023, the TissueFAXS SL 120 slide scanning system is offline for repairs. It is anticipated that these repairs will take several weeks. Please check back for updates before submitting samples for scanning. During this time, we have no color scanning capability and limited fluorescence scanning capabilities.

Please email or schedule a meeting with us to discuss these options if this shutdown impacts your project. Thanks for your patience as we get this system repaired!
