JENA/Germany – June 2008.
Version 4.7 of the AxioVision image analysis software from Carl Zeiss contains numerous new modules and supports microscopes, components and functions.
This provides users in the fields of the life sciences and materials microscopy with faster and better evaluation possibilities.
AxioVision is used for capturing, archiving, processing, analyzing, reconstructing and evaluating images in digital microscopy. The new “Fast MosaiX“ module can scan large surfaces up to ten times faster than the current solution.
The “Dual Camera“ tool allows simultaneous image capture by two cameras, therefore doubling the speed of capture. “HDR imaging” expands the available dynamic range of digital cameras. The “ASSAYbuilder” performs high content analysis in images captured with AxioVision 4.7.
The measurement, segmentation and further processing of 3D objects is enabled by the “3D measurement” module. “Comparative diagrams“ serves to assess materials, and the “Physiology“ module in combination with “Dual Camera“ can be used to perform emission ratio imaging and fast FRET imaging (Fluorescence Resonance Energy Transfer).
AxioVision 4.7 supports the Axio Examiner microscope and the “Definite Focus“ function for Axio Observer. In addition, it functions together with the new components for the SteREO micropscope series.
The AxioVision 4.7 basic package contains further innovations such as a new diagram view for data lists which enables simple preparation of bar and pie charts as well as scatter plots.
Reports can now also be exported into the Microsoft Word-compatible RTF format.
The exposure time of the camera in the live image can be automatically updated with changing brightness. Furthermore, the Autofocus module is now available for SteREO microscopes.
