Nikon launches NIS Elements v2.3 for microscope image capture and analysis

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.

Featuring enhanced 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.
