TWAIN was a proprietary format, but is now "essentailly" open source from its popularity.  ISIS, as far as I know, is a proprietary format for which there is no open source code, at least that I can find.  

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISIS

However, that said, you can easily reverse engineer an ISIS driver for a scanner that professes to be network capable, and once you understand the protocols and its network access methods, you could then write your own.  The other way is to contact EMC directly -- www.emc.com

Have you looked at SANE?  It seems to be one of the best open-source concepts -- at least it has started out as open source instead of proprietary, so that is a big plus for it --

I normally don't give WIKI links, but in the case of these scanner drivers, it seems to be the best discussion of their features.

You asked for an OPEN source product -- SANE is an API that you write to, using the calls of the API.

M$ .NET technology has nothing to do with it, you write to the SANE API, not to a .NET API.  The SANE is the backend driver interface, other APIs like .NET are the front end generators of the GUI interface.

To some degree, .NET is proprietary to M$ products and OSs, so it is the opposite of open source.  The best way is to go to the SANE website, http://www.sane-project.org/ and look at their API and see what front end programs it can link to.  .NET might indeed be one of them.

Also see -- http://www.xsane.org/ -- there is a front end GUI ready made for the SANE interface.

Anyway to answer your main question, I could find nothing open source that linked to ISIS, everything seems to be proprietary.
