MELVILLE, N.Y., March 12th, 2019 – Nikon Instruments Inc., an industry leader in advanced optical instruments will be debuting the OS-15-N, a digital slide scanning system featuring Nikon optics, at the USCAP 108th annual meeting.  Nikon Instruments recently partnered with OptraSCAN®, the leading on-demand digital pathology solution provider to provide an end-to-end digital pathology solution that takes advantage of Nikon’s industry-leading optics and OptraSCAN’s well-established desktop slide scanning system, the OS-15. The OS-15-N features Nikon’s highest level, research-grade Plan Apo Lambda objectives. These objectives combine Nikon’s propriety Nano Crystal Coat technology and incredibly high N.A., resulting in images with stunning clarity and detail. Furthermore, with Plan Apo correction, the industry’s highest level of aberration correction, true image reproduction with minimal distortion is guaranteed, enabling edge-to-edge quantitation and maximum data throughput and reproducibility.
