A software accessory for imaging samples that are difficult to illuminate has been designed by Syncroscopy for its AcQuis and Auto-Montage image-capture system. Quantage captures a series of images at different exposure times from a remotely controlled camera. The content of each image is assessed, and areas that are neither under- nor overexposed are combined into one, resulting in a color image with what the company says is a huge dynamic range. It can then can be viewed, stored, analyzed or rescaled. Imaging applications for Quantage include electronic components, fluorescence samples, crystals, geology, archaeology and metallurgy.
