Multispectral imaging compatible with MetaMorph
Molecular Devices (UK)contact supplier
Nuance / MetaMorph
Cambridge Research and Instrumentation (CRi) and MDS Analytical Technologies announced support for the highly regarded Nuance multispectral imaging system from within the MetaMorph software package
Full support for both monochrome and multispectral imaging using the Nuance system is provided, as well as binning, ROI, live streaming video, movie capture, and autofocus for z-capable hardware.
Nuance protocols, spectral libraries, and image cubes may be loaded into the MetaMorph program.
In addition, raw or processed images may be loaded into MetaMorph for further analysis or exported as industry-standard Tiffs.
"All supported commands can be incorporated into MetaMorph software journals, so complex tasks can be automated," noted James Mansfield, director of multispectral imaging systems at CRi.
"For example, after an existing Nuance protocol is loaded, an image cube can be acquired using this protocol.
"The individual components can be unmixed and the data saved as Tiff files, and then read into MetaMorph software for object-counting and reporting.
"The microscope stage can then be moved to a new location, auto focused, and the previous steps repeated".
"MDS Analytical Technologies is pleased to work with CRi and have MetaMorph used in the multi-spectral analysis application area," said Andy Boorn, president of MDS Analytical Technologies.
"The combination of Nuance and MetaMorph creates a simple solution for our customers to automate varied acquisition tasks and analyse complex image data".
MetaMorph compatibility was introduced in version 2.8 of CRi's Nuance software program on 1 July 2008.
Customers currently using version 2.4 or later are eligible for a free update (contact CRi Customer Support for details).
