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
