Description

Isis combines ease of use and functionality which meets the requirements of even the most demanding research and routine applications. With the help of automatic exposure time adjustment, and with the support of most common motorized microscopes, it reliably acquires fluorescence images with up to 12 color channels. For image processing, Isis provides a variety of tools to enhance, edit, annotate, archive, measure, and print the images. The optimized user interface guarantees rapid results in research and routine environments. Isis can be either installed as a stand-alone system, or it can be seamlessly integrated with Ikaros karyotyping stations, the Metafer1 slide scanning workstation, or any networked multi-user workplace. Options for color karyotyping, comparative genomic hybridization (CGH), multicolor FISH (mFISH), multicolor banding (mBAND), and automatic telomere measurement are available (see below).

Professional imaging of fluorescently labeled samples requires images of the highest quality. The combination of state-of-the-art image acquisition hardware, and software tools for automated control of imaging parameters, guarantees perfect raw images. Many image enhancement tools can be used automatically, thus matching the requirements of routine laboratory needs and providing a streamlined workflow. The integrated focus stack function (most conveniently in combination with a motorized microscope) is a simple and effective tool to analyze 3D objects. Captured images from different focus planes can be combined generating an extended focus image. All signals are clearly detectable, while unspecific background is removed.

Multiple customizable color display modes (RGB, individual colors, modified colors, merged colors, gray scale, inverted gray scale, combinatorial false colors) allow detailed analysis of images. All false color lookup tables can be easily modified and saved separately for further usage.
