[Ultrasonic Microscope]


Rapid tissue elasticity evaluation technology
Ultrasonic microscope, AMS-50SI uses high frequency ultrasonic wave to observe microscopic construction of biological tissues. It observes not only construction of the tissue, but also elasticity. The difference of elasticity is shown in color and it gives very good identification.
The newly developed "Acoustic Impedance Mode" realized non-sliced tissue observation. 
"Sound Speed Mode" observation with sliced tissue is also supported.

  1. Observe elasticity of tissue without staining process in quantitative way.
  2. Tissue elasticity evaluation can be made by acoustic speed measurement.
  3. Easy and rapid operation.
