AxioVision Version 4.8 software from Carl
Zeiss offers new possibilities and more convenience for all areas of the
life sciences and for industrial applications in which digital microscopy is
used for routine tasks. The functionalities have been expanded and the operation
of the software optimized: the Fluorescence Lite software module for AxioVision
LE and the AxioCam ICm1 camera optimized for biomedical applications provide
an economical combination of software and hardware which has been precisely
tailored to the needs of routine applications and supports the use of manual
microscopes. The software packages for materials applications comprise compact
and cost-efficient total solutions for routine tasks in industry.
For materials microscopy, AxioVision Version 4.8 has been expanded by the three
software packages “Materials Core”, “Image Analysis Upgrade”
and “Motorization Upgrade”. The “Materials Core” package
combines important AxioVision functionalities for acquisition, image analysis
and documentation which had to be purchased as separate modules until now. The
“Motorization Upgrade” not only contains a function for the acquisition
of Z-stack images which is specially adapted to the needs of materials microscopy,
but also offers the possibility of acquiring MosaiX images of large surfaces.
The proven application modules for metallography (particle analysis, non-metallic
inclusions in steel, grain size analysis, multiphase analysis, cast iron analysis,
comparative diagrams) have been further improved.
The Dual Camera module of the AxioVision Version 4.8 software now also supports
Photometrics PVCAM cameras, including the Evolve model. Furthermore, the new
software version allows the Definite Focus instrument module to be used even
more easily and flexibly for screenings in biomedical research.
