Life Science Imaging Gets That Little Bit Clearer

In order to remove unwanted blur in life science imaging caused through poor focusing, the Olympus cellSens employs an advanced iterative (CI) algorithm. The result of this high speed process are images with a sharpness which is second to none. Furthermore, the process has the ability to auto-correct spherical aberrations. By integrating seamlessly with the cellSens Dimensions software, users are not only guaranteed the highest possible levels of quality, but also unparalleled performance.

Thanks to the much improved algorithm which was developed specifically for Olympus, the deconvolution solution module makes high speed image restoration possible, and by taking advantage of modern computer capabilities, multi-core processors are used in order to provide the world's most powerful deconvolution facility capable of correcting even the most blurred images.

Above all, the technology means that the average user can correct images efficiently, and without having to go through all the steps as is often the case with other anti-blurring software packages.

Additionally, by using the powerful VoxelViewer, high quality image stacks can be viewed in 3D, and all of this is possible with just a click of a mouse.

This also makes in-depth analysis possible, and users can view stereo adaptions of their images as well as a function for online de-blurring, which allows to preview de-convoluted images even during live operation of the camera.

When using the Olympus deconvolution solution module, a wide range of image types can be deconvolved, and this includes fluorescence, confocal and brightfield. Also, because the software can perform blind deconvolution, it can effectively make use of a theoretical point spread function (PSF). The PSF calculations can be saved if necessary and then used when future deconvolutions are performed. Interestingly, images from other systems can also be imported with ease, making the Olympus system the most versatile product available on the market.

Dimentions of the cellSens

Having been designed specifically for controlling and processing of microscope-based experimental systems, the system comes with a wide range of advanced features. For example, the system can be used to perform numerous complex experiments ranging from extended focal imaging to multiple image alignment and multi-position imaging. Live images can also uploaded directly to the web by using the built-in netcam function.

Because the system supports Olympus and non-Olympus hardware, time-lapse experiments can also be carried out successfully. Once all relevant data has been accumulated, the 'report composer' uses Microsoft Word templates in order to generate reports specific to the user, which in turn are capable of retrieving images directly from the cellSens online database.
