What is Autoscope?
AutoScope is a program that performs image analysis and automatic blob detection. It stores object measurements such as area, perimeter, circularity and eccentricity, as well as image thumbnails in an MSAccess 2.0 database format. This enables users to simply sort, select and modify the classification of objects found extremely quickly, and produces summaries of results with much greater accuracy and confidence.
AutoScope has been designed to run with the Autoscan range of microscope stages and a range of digital cameras. The combination of software and hardware results in a powerful tool that can be used to automate laborious, time consuming, subjective and often error prone microscopy tasks.
The full power of AutoScope has to be seen to be believed!
In real life, AutoScope uses the Autoscan stage to position a microscopic sample over a defined area of interest (AOI) with micron resolution. Each image of a field of view in the AOI is then captured using a CCD camera and frame grabber. Objects in the captured image are automatically located and segmented from the background and then passed to the feature measurement module. Objects with features that satisfy predefined criteria are then stored in a database. This process continues for the entire AOI.
Please contact us at Autoscan Systems for a free AutoScope demo CD. Our demonstration version of AutoScope allows you to try out our software without the need to purchase an Autoscan stage, camera or microscope! All you need is an IBM-compatible PC running MSWindows 98 SE or NT Version 4 or higher, and having a screen resolution of at least 1024 x 768 x 24-bit colour.
