  How to use the ZOOMA viewer

I. Display ZOOMA images (virtual slides)

ZOOMA images can be displayed by clicking any thumbnail images or protein names/slice numbers above the thumbnails on the database windows.

  1. When you click on a thumbnail, the ZOOMA image appears in a new window.
  2. When you click on a protein name or a slice number above the thumbnail, the ZOOMA image appears in the same window.

II. Change the display

You can choose either a split-screen display showing both immunostained and hematoxylin/eosin-stained images or full-screen display showing only the immunostained images. This function allows you to observe the localization of the protein of interest in a full-screen window.

Click the “viewChange" button to switch between split-screen and full-screen images.

III. How to zoom

There are two ways to zoom a digital slide.

  1. Scroll up and down the slide bar on the right side to zoom in and out.
