  • Publication number: 20190113456
    Abstract: A multi-surface image acquisition system includes a multi-surface observation prism which includes one or more prisms and has a light path formed to collect surfaces in respective directions to be observed of a subject having a three-dimensional structure into one direction, in which a light path length is corrected by utilizing a difference in refractive index between glass and air to equalize a working distance of each surface. A light field camera expands a focal-depth adjustment range for two or more images focused on same plane through the prism. A three-dimensional subject can be observed in multiple directions at the same time, including an observation of cells.

  • Patent number: 7426345
    Abstract: A slide photograph data creation system includes a digital camera for making high-magnification photographs of samples, a sample transporter for holding and transporting samples, a controller for controlling the camera and the sample transporter so as to provide overlapping photographs, a pasting information generator for recognizing the margin by which the photographs overlap and for generating pasting-together information, and a photograph file generator for storing in a single file a plurality of high-magnification photographs and the pasting-together information. The system facilitates the examination and photography of large numbers of samples, and enables discrimination of the three-dimensional structure of a sample. Since the photographic data is managed with a database, virtual slide photographs and their attributes information can be browsed over a network or the Internet.
