Imaging software NIS-Elements Ar
Nikon's proprietary imaging software NIS-Elements Ar allows multi-dimensional image capture, image processing, and data management and analysis of up to 6D.
Haze and blur of an image that can occur when capturing a thick specimen or a fluorescence image can be eliminated from the captured image.
Dedicated image analysis software for BioStation series-CL-Quant
Cell detection in phase contrast images
CL-Quant automatically detects and measures the cellular area in unstained, label-free phase contrast images. Unique image processing algorithms provide accurate thresholding of phase contrast images, which enables non-invasive quantitative analysis of cells. Cell detection accuracy can be improved through a learning function process.
Scratch (wound) test quantification
CL-Quant automatically segmented the acellular area (blue) in the time-lapse cell migration images that were captured at the beginning (left) and on the second day (right) of a 2-day phase contrast observation. The graph indicates how the acellular area decreased.
Analysis option: cell counting, scratch (wound) test, growth curve, tracking, stem cell colony analysis
