Imaging

BIOQUANT OSTEO collects data on images of tissue slides, welled plates, or anything else that can be captured with the camera or scanned into an image.

OSTEO Imaging Options

The decision of how to collect images in your laboratory is important. There are several imaging techniques for the analysis of bone tissues and cell cultures. The best technique for you lab to use will depend on many factors including available laboratory equipment, the number of people that need to collect data, and the available budget.

OPEN IMAGE FILES

  • Open existing TIF, BMP, PNG, JPG, or DICOM files

  • Open very large digital scans (up to 4 GB) saved from a slide scanner or stitched together with 3rd party software

  • Open single files saved from your digital camera, a series of images (up to 1,000)

  • Open IMG receptor binding assays

  • Open DICOM X-ray or MicroCT files

LIVE IMAGE FROM MICROSCOPE

  • Fast live imaging at 30 frames/second directly in Measurement window

  • Dynamic adjustment of Auto Exposure, Gain, and Background Correction within the Measurement window.

  • Enhanced Live Overlay: Measure on a live image and redraw measurement tracings on a live image

USE BIOQUANT SCAN TO DIGITIZE SLIDE

  • The BIOQUANT SCAN Add-on supports bright field, polarized light, and fluorescence slide scanning. 

  • Scan up to 8 tissue sections on 4 slides. The typical scan time is about 8 minutes per section with a 20X objective.

  • Scan up to 96 wells per plate, at a typical scan time of about 3 minutes per well with a 10X objective.

  • Scans loads into our Large Image Navigator. The Large Image Navigator is like a virtual microscope

BIOQUANT Hardware Options

BIOQUANT OSTEO can be configured with several hardware options to enable live imaging and/or scanning from within BIOQUANT. Microscope Upgrade Kits range from adding a digital camera to generate a live image in our Measurement window, to adding full slide scanning support.
