Gain the Quality Edge

Ron Goldman, Clemex Technologies Inc.

With the increasing importance of quality control as a competitive tool, manufacturers are in constant search of technology solutions that will assist them in improving their production processes. In the lab, automated image analysis is rapidly gaining popularity. A digital alternative for quantitative microscopy, image analysis technology allows users to rapidly extract accurate and consistent data.
Automated image analysis offers significant advantages over manual procedures. Where traditional methods call for subjective approximations, an automated image analysis system empowers users to extract operator independent statistics. Microscopists no longer have to manually compare individual images with standard industry charts. Also, because it is computer-based, users can better manipulate images and data for customized reports.
Used in conjunction with light microscopes, image analysis technology is changing the face of quality control. A turnkey image analysis system integrating digital cameras, microscopes, computers and built-in image capture and stage control software allows users to perform image processing functions that were impossible or extremely time-consuming only a short while ago.
