Bio-ultrasound microscope

Bio-ultrasound microscope
Optical microscope not included in product


The AMS-50SI can quickly determine tissue firmness by measuring the tissue sound velocity of pathology sections.
The newly developed acoustic impedance mode does not require the slicing tissues, allowing faster observation.
Of course, the conventional sound velocity mode, which uses slice sections, is also supported.

*Optical microscope unit is not included in the set.
(It is not necessary for acquiring ultrasonic images.)

  • Quantitative observation of biological tissues without staining

  • Measuring tissue firmness by sound velocity / acoustic impedance measurements

  • Easy, quick processing

This device was developed as a part of the regional consortium project in 2002.
