Olympus microscopy software moves into pole position
Olympus has released the Multi-position Solution module for its cellSens Dimension software. The module works in tandem with the cellSens Dimension Multiple Image Alignment (MIA) tool to facilitate the simple creation of high-resolution, panoramic images capable of covering the complete microscope stage. The Multi-position software puts the user in the best position possible to accurately and automatically investigate large or complicated samples without sacrificing magnification power or image quality.
The Multi-position Solution module is designed to make the study of large or complicated samples simple, flexible and precise. Typically, the acquisition of microscope images has been a trade off between a need to capture pictures at a high level of magnification and a desire to maintain the widest possible field of view. The Olympus Multi-position system provides researchers with the best of both worlds by allowing multiple, high-resolution images to be systematically captured and then seamlessly stitched together to create incredibly detailed panoramas limited only by the size of the microscope stage. The system is fully automated and customisable, providing the capacity to study as many areas of interest per sample as desired, or even the entire stage when necessary. In this way, sequential time-lapse imaging across different areas of a specimen can significantly boost the statistical relevance of the data collected.
As well as being fully compliant with Olympus hardware, the software integrates seamlessly with a wide range of third party stages, including those manufactured by Oasis, Prior, LUDL and Märzhäuser.
In combination with other Solution modules available for the cellSens Dimension system, the Multi-position Solution module removes the restrictions imposed by traditional image capture from a single field of view, making it possible to perform multiple fluorophore, 3D, time-lapse enabled imaging over an entire microscope stage.
The cellSens Dimension software package is designed to offer control and processing for microscope-based experimental systems, providing a broad range of advanced features, as well as specialised, optional Solution modules. Users can conduct a range of complex and highly sophisticated experiments, from extended focal imaging to multiple image alignment and multi-position imaging. Furthermore, live images can be transferred directly to the web using the Netcam Solution, enabling rapid discussion with colleagues, wherever they are in the world. With the ability to control a wide range of Olympus and non-Olympus hardware, cellSens Dimension allows advanced and precise time-lapse experiments to be conducted. The resulting time stacks can even be put through kinetic and threshold-based object analysis. Once data has been obtained, the unique report composer uses Microsoft Word templates to generate user-defined reports that retrieve images and data directly from the cellSens database.
