  • Publication number: 20170329118
    Abstract: A microscope system comprises a microscope body, a stage configured to place a slide as an observation target and move in an X direction and a Y direction. The microscope system changes an arrangement of the placed slide with respect to the stage so as to cause a direction indicated by a mark provided on the slide placed on the stage to align with one of the X direction and the Y direction of the stage.

  • Publication number: 20170329123
    Abstract: A microscope system comprises a microscope body, an imaging unit connected to the microscope body and including an image sensor for capturing a microscopic image, and an XY stage configured to place a slide and move in an X direction and a Y direction. The microscope system changes an arrangement of the image sensor with respect to the microscope body so as to cause a direction defined by a pixel arrangement of the image sensor to align with one of the X direction and the Y direction of the XY stage.

  • Publication number: 20170261737
    Abstract: A slide on which an observation object by a microscope is placed, is provided. A first mark indicating a reference line along a first direction and a second mark indicating a specific position on an extension of the reference line along the first direction are separately arranged in a vacant area between a label area used to arrange a label and a cover glass area used to arrange the observation object and a cover glass. A position reference is provided by the specific position on the extension of the reference line along the first direction.
