Biological laboratories usually acquire images by measuring photon flux in parallel (using a camera) or sequentially (using a point detector and equipment that scans the area of interest). Although capturing an image from a camera into the computer is straightforward, in most cases image acquisition needs to be tightly synchronized with other computer-controllable equipment such as shutters, filter wheels, XY stages, Z-axis focus drives, and autofocus mechanisms (implemented in software or hardware).
Provides all the tools you need to visualize, analyze and validate 3D fluorescence images from a wide range of confocal microscopy, widefield and high content screening systems and is fully integrated for a seamless user experience. Get a full picture of the biological process with rapid, interactive, high-resolution volume rendering of time resolved, multichannel 3D data sets using Volocity software.
It is the ideal "glue" for easily integrating dissimilar fluorescent microscope hardware and peripherals into a single custom workstation, while providing all the tools needed to perform meaningful analysis of acquired images. The software offers many user-friendly application modules for biology-specific analysis such as cell signaling, cell counting, and protein expression.
A software package for control of automated microscopes. Together with the image processing application ImageJ, μManager provides a comprehensive, freely available, imaging solution. μManager has a simple and clean user interface, through which it lets you execute common microscope image acquisition strategies such as time-lapses, multi-channel imaging, z-stacks, and combinations thereof. μManager works with microscopes from all four major manufacturers (Leica, Nikon, Olympus and Zeiss), most scientific-grade cameras and many peripherals (stages, filter wheels, shutters, etc.) used in microscope imaging.
A simple, software-based approach to operating a laser scanning microscope without the need for custom data acquisition hardware. Data acquisition and control of laser scanning are achieved through standard data acquisition boards. The entire burden of signal integration and image processing is placed on the CPU of the computer.
Allows to acquire high resolution images in a very short period of time. CellSens helps users to combine a series of individual monochrome images into only one. It permits to assemble separate images that belong to different color channels. The software can also record a movie.
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.
Achieves hard real-time data acquisition and closed-loop control in biological experiments. RTXI is based on a Real-Time Operating System (RTOS) that modifies the operating system's native kernel architecture. It allows users to move developed and tested modules, algorithms, and entire closed-loop protocols from one computer to another without significant overhead. The tool is compatible with a wide range of experimentation hardware.
