Syncroscopy, a Frederick, Md.-based developer of digital imaging products for microscopy applications, announced that the Academy of Natural Sciences has used its Auto-Montage 3-D imaging software to produce a CD containing images of more than 700 species plates of rotifers, multicelled animals that live in water and transform organic matter into protein. The CD, known as the Frank J. Myers Rotifera Collection, contains 744 images of rotifer species on slides; Syncroscopy said it is the largest virtual collection of images of this animal group.
