Digital pathology provides new ways to visualize tissue slides and enables new workflows for analyzing these slides. Analogous to radiology, adjacent tissue sections prepared with different stains or biomarkers (e.g. H&E, IHC, special stains, or ISH; chromogenic or fluorescent) may be seen as different modalities, each representing different structural(More)
The lateral alignment of [012] habit-modified calcite crystals with respect to a carboxylic acid terminated self-assembled monolayer (SAM) of thiols has been determined. The crystals were grown from a Kitano solution (pH 5.6-6.0), and the samples were investigated with scanning electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, and polarization microscopy. For the(More)
We propose a workflow for color reproduction in whole slide imaging (WSI) scanners, such that the colors in the scanned images match to the actual slide color and the inter-scanner variation is minimum. We describe a new method of preparation and verification of the color phantom slide, consisting of a standard IT8-target transmissive film, which is used in(More)
Many chemical reactions are catalysed by metal complexes, and insight into their mechanisms is essential for the design of future catalysts. A variety of conventional spectroscopic techniques are available for the study of reaction mechanisms at the ensemble level, and, only recently, fluorescence microscopy techniques have been applied to monitor single(More)
Whole Slide Imaging (WSI) systems are high-throughput automated microscopes for digital pathology applications. We present a method for testing and monitoring the optical quality of WSI-systems using a measurement of the through-focus Optical Transfer Function (OTF) obtained from the edge response of a custom made resolution target, composed of sagittal and(More)
The precise structure of monolayers of catalytic manganese porphyrins at the interface of an Au(111)-surface and an n-tetradecane liquid has been determined in a liquid-cell scanning tunneling microscope (STM). Before the addition of the manganese porphyrins, an ordered monolayer of lamellae of n-tetradecane molecules on the Au(111) surface could be imaged.(More)
CONTEXT The quality of images produced by whole slide imaging (WSI) scanners has a direct influence on the readers' performance and reliability of the clinical diagnosis. Therefore, WSI scanners should produce not only high quality but also consistent quality images. AIM We aim to evaluate reproducibility of WSI scanners based on the quality of images(More)
