A complete suite for analysis of sleep and locomotor activity in Drosophila melanogaster. pySolo has been developed with the specific aim of being accessible, portable, fast and easily expandable through an intuitive plug-in structure. It provides a user-friendly graphic interface and includes a powerful video recording solution and a versatile software for analysis of video as well as of traditional (infrared based) data. Support for development of additional plug-ins is provided through a community website.
Provides an automated image and video acquisition tool that features a motorized stage. WormScanner can perform through an image scanning mode multiple tiled images of a Petri dish or individual wells of a multi-well plate. This software can also make videos with specified length and scan a plate to produce time-lapse images for the lifespan essay. This module is part of the QuantWorm software.
Analyzes C. elegans lifespan, locomotion, body size, and egg laying assay phenotypes. QuantWorm contains several components for image acquisition and image analysis that provides multiple measurements on C. elegans. This software can be easily modified by developers to adapt methods from several popular systems. It can be used with a microscope equipped with a digital camera and motorized stage.
Assists users to analyze large-scale image data. This program offers several functionalities such as: acquisition of plant images, transformation of amounts of real-time image data to numerical data, and presentation of these data as graphs. This system can be used by plant biologists and data are automatically acquired and processed. Moreover, this software enables tracking of plant growth.
An open-source toolkit for acquiring, displaying, saving, and analyzing digital video in real-time. At the highest level, Motmot is written in the Python computer language. The large amounts of data produced by digital cameras are handled by low-level, optimized functions, usually written in C. This high-level/low-level partitioning and use of select external libraries allow Motmot, with only modest complexity, to perform well as a core technology for many high-performance imaging tasks.
Captures standardized photographs of diabetic feet within a follow-up study. FootSnap employs an automated foot detection computer vision algorithm to recognize the foot region from the photograph. It allows standardization of plantar foot pictures in relation to the distance from the foot and the orientation of the camera relative to the foot. This tool uses the Jaccard similarity index (JSI) to quantify intraoperator and interoperator reliability.
Measures annual tree-ring widths and other parameters like minimum, maximum and average density, early wood width and more. WinDENDRO is designed for dendrometrists and dendrochronologists and is available as a software alone or with hardware components. This software can process tree-rings from wood disks, cores, X-ray films and images produced by film less digital X-ray systems.
Analyzes images from minirhizotron underground video camera systems to manually measure root. WinRhizo Tron suits for cases where the image does not offer a good between roots and the background. Users need to manually trace roots with the mouse over the image or with a touch interface to measure the roots. This software is also available through an upgraded version that can analyze multiples frames simultaneously.
Achieves morphological measurements on broad leaves. WinFOLIA can measure leaf area meter, analyze morphology and assess disease and insect damage. It consists of hardware for image acquisition (scanner or digital camera), a portable imaging and calibration kit (PICK) and a computer software. It is available in three versions: basic, regular and pro.
Evaluates wood cell morphology on thin wood slices cut. WinCELL measures cut with microtome or directly on wood surface. The morphological measurements can be processed automatically on every cells present in the analyzed region or on selected cells with interactive measurements. It can deal with incomplete cells that are truncated by image boundary to have no consequences on the average cell measurements.
Analyzes automatically seedles (seeds and needles) on images acquired with a scanner or a digital camera. WinSEEDLE supports batch scanning and can analyze whole images or their sub-regions and offers the possibility to exclude some regions of the image from the process. This method is available as a software program only and as a version with the necessary image acquisition hardware.
Allows to visualize and present your images in several dimensions. The functionality of this imaging toolbox expands constantly with a wide range of different modules that are tailored to specific applications or microscope accessories. AxioVision offers countless functions for applications in the field of biological and medical routine research.
It is scaled to manage basic research applications. While not as full featured as the Advanced Research module, BR offers most of the total imaging solutions as its more powerful counterpart. With BR, you still have access to advanced image capture, archiving, and analysis solutions that are easy-to-use and provide maximum workflow.
Provides an image analysis tool for root measurement in different forms. WinRhizo supports morphology (length, area, volume etc.), topology, architecture and color analyses of washed roots. It draws the root distribution graphic above the image and users can customize the number and the width of classes. This software is available in four versions: basic, regular, pro and Arabidopsis.
Allows users to collect and analyze data for circadian biology. ClockLab provides tools for (i) analyzing circadian rhythms, (ii) collecting data as well as for (iii) controlling and recording from light-tight circadian cabinets made by Phenome Technologies.
Serves as an image analysis tool for different types of measurements such as quantification of color clusters of interest, measurement of objects morphology and spectral vegetation indices and process profilometry analyses. WinCAM NDVI can be applied concretely for measuring the diseased area on fruits, vegetables, leaves, flowers or any other material that is altered and shows a minimum of color contrasts. This program is available as a regular and a pro version that allows more analysis options.
