Software for fast image capture with Zeiss microscopy systems

AxioVision version 4.7.2 from Carl Zeiss MicroImaging GmbH (Thornwood, NY) aims to provide fast image capture using Zeiss's CellObserver SD and Laser TIRF 3 microscope systems. It allows the combination of high-speed image capture under physiological conditions (incubation) and fast confocal microscopy--and it permits the analysis of near-membrane processes at a high temporal resolution. A "Dual Camera" software module allows the allocation of cameras to individual recording channels.

A "Dual Camera" software module allows the allocation of different cameras to individual recording channels, avoiding the need to change the filter during signal sequence progression; the cameras can also be synchronized through software triggering. For FRET evaluation, scientists can now use all standard correction techniques as well as formulas they have defined themselves.

NEW AxioVision ROUNDS OF 3D IMAGING FROM CARL ZEISS OFFERS FAST IMAGE CAPURE COMBINED WITH FAST CONFOCAL MICROOSCOPY

Version 4.7.2 of the AxioVision software from Carl Zeiss now enables fast image capturing using the CellObserver SD and Laser TIRF 3 microscope systems.

Thornwood, N.Y. – Carl Zeiss MicroImaging GmbH, a leading provider of microscopy solutions for a variety of research, clinical and industrial applications, introduces its version 4.7.2 AxioVision software, enabling fast image capture using the CellObserver SD and Laser TIRF 3 microscope systems. Scientists working in the life sciences field benefit from the extended functionality of the CellObserver. AxioVision now also enables the combination of high-speed image capture under physiological conditions (incubation) and fast confocal microscopy, thus enhancing the portfolio from Carl Zeiss for 3D life cell imaging. Furthermore, this software version permits the analysis of near-membrane processes at a high temporal resolution.

Also particularly noteworthy are the configuration functions of the "Dual Camera" software module which allow the clear allocation of individual cameras to the recording channels. Therefore, it is no longer necessary to change the filter after the signal sequence changes. From now on, the cameras can also be synchronized through software triggering. For FRET evaluation, scientists can now use all standard correction techniques as well as formulas they have defined themselves. The sturdy signal distribution box for the CellObserver HS ensures that the components for fast image capture are clearly connected to the trigger board of the image analysis computer. Therefore, the components no longer need to be connected to the computer via a special cable harness.

HDR (High Dynamic Range) image capture can now be tested free of charge with AxioVision and AxioVision LE. Here, a watermark is embedded into the images. Effective immediately, the AxioVision HDR image capture module is also available for the free AxioVision LE software.
