ChromaCal, a commercially available color calibration technology for brightfield microscopy, addresses the critical need for quality assurance standards in digital microscopy imaging. With the technology, images captured over various time periods and using a variety of automated imaging systems can be standardized to deliver consistency in quality and color, and therefore optimize evaluation and automated analysis. The integration ensures standardization of color parameters, leading to consistency and accuracy of an image’s color base and highly reproducible results across images.

The collaboration allows Flagship Biosciences to include whole-slide imaging systems and scanners in its offering, according to Mark S. McNulty, general manager for Datacolor ChromaCal. For more information, please contact McNulty at mmcnulty@datacolor.com.
