Nikon High Resolution Imaging Software for Confocal Microscope "NIS-Elements C-ER"
OREANDA-NEWS. October 16, 2015. Nikon Corporation (Kazuo Ushida, President, Tokyo) is pleased to announce the release of the high resolution Confocal Imaging Software “NIS-Elements C-ER”* which provides resolution enhancement capability for confocal images.
Without changing the conventional confocal image acquisition procedure, users can easily achieve enhanced resolution by utilizing a unique image processing technology.
This product will be presented at “Neuroscience 2015 – Society of Neuroscience” (October 17 – 21 at Chicago, Il, United States.)
- *ER: Enhanced Resolution
|Name||Confocal Imaging Software “NIS-Elements C-ER”|
|Launch date||the end of October 2015|
The application range of conventional confocal microscopes is very wide, and increasing the resolution is in high demand. To meet these demands, Nikon developed a Confocal Imaging Software “NIS-Elements C-ER” which can easily provide high resolution confocal images.
- Realization of high resolution confocal image
Image resolution is defined as the smallest distance between 2 points that can be resolved. The theoretical limit of a conventional optical microscope is approx. 200nm. Confocal microscopes potentially possess the capability of acquiring higher resolution images, but it has not been effectively achieved. Nikon has developed a new image processing technology to enable users to easily acquire higher resolution images using a confocal microscope.
- Easy workflow
Generating high resolution confocal images can be realized with a single click of a button. The software assesses the captured image and automatically determines processing parameters to achieve enhanced resolution.
