[[About software:


  • ImageJ (NIH, freeware, several versions) scientific image processing. Many plugins and macro’s.
  • Huygens deconvolution (SVI), for removing out of focus blurring, noise in confocal and Nipkow disk images (only on computer no1). Also colocalisation analysis.
  • Imaris 7.0 (Bitplane) 3D reconstruction. With this program you can easily load, visualize and analyze data from a few megabytes to multiple gigabytes in size from almost all microscope image formats. 3D reconstructions, particle tracking, filament tracer and more. (only on computer no2, the lite version on no1)
  • Photoshop (Adobe). Photo editor
  • ZEN Zeiss output evaluation
  • LCS lite (Leica)  For easy evaluation of Leica images.
  • HistoQuest (Tissuegnostics)  to identify and analyze individual cells in their native tissue environment. For histological data acquired with the TissueFaxs microscope or a Hammamatsu system.
  • TissueQuest (Tissuegnostics)  As HistoQuest, for fluorescent labelled samples.
