3Scan’s robotic microscope slices the tissue samples very precisely. Something like a micro deli-slicer, Klimen explained, 3Scan’s system can derive 10,000 slices from each tissue sample. The robotic microscope then uses machine vision to generate a digital, 3-D spatial map which researchers can review and explore on a screen, something like a topographical map of the Earth.
