Nikon launches NIS Elements v2.3 for microscope image capture and
30 November 2006
Nikon’s new NIS Elements V2.3 software provides a
suite of powerfully fast multi-dimensional, image capture and analysis
solutions covering a broad spectrum of microscopy applications, to simplify
workflow, both in life and material sciences. The software will speed up
microscope image acquisition with enhanced, user-friendly, software for
bioresearch and industrial professionals.
The user-friendly software
stores all common operations in a centralised location and allows
spreadsheet analysis to be linked to the image view and easy exportation of
data to HTML, text and Excel file formats.

acquisition controls, the user is able to scroll through and observe
previously captured data without having to pause or stop an experiment.
Furthermore, the new camera-triggered device control option supports image
acquisition at the fastest rate possible. With powerful visualisation tools,
the speed of processing is greatly improved, and this allows for fluid
rotation and movement of the dataset in the volume view. The system also
features an enhanced navigation window for zooming in on larger images.
The NIS Elements V2.3 features new region of interest (ROI) tools which
can be drawn and specified directly onto the image. The user is able to
toggle the ROI function on and off, and when on, ROIs can be moved in
unison. With new support for AVI native file format, AVI files can be
opened, saved and compressed directly.
“The NIS - Elements V2.3 will help
to position Nikon software as the world’s leading platform for sophisticated
image capture, instrument control, data management and analysis” comments
Robert Forster, General Manager, Nikon Instruments UK.
