Wide-field Imaging Systems
Feb 2009
Leica Microsystems GmbHRequest Info
WETZLAR, Germany, Feb. 24, 2009 – Leica Microsystems GmbH has launched its MM AF imaging systems powered by MDS Analytical Technologies’ MetaMorph software. The product line provides a range of solutions for wide-field imaging in life sciences research.

The instruments have an integrated journaling capability that allows customization of the platform for virtually any imaging application. They are suitable for applications in morphometry, distance measurement, investigation of cellular function, live-cell and time-lapse imaging, multidimensional acquisition and 3-D reconstruction. They also measure colocalization and brightness, and they perform 2-D deconvolution, cell counting, Förster resonance energy transfer, and area and intensity measurements with graphing.LeicaImagingSystems.jpg
Features include shading correction and background subtraction, nearest neighbors and no neighbors, data logging and exporting, and digital autofocus.

The systems provide control for devices such as filter wheels, shutters, cooled CCD cameras, motorized stages, and digital and serial input/output.

The morphometry tools enable a choice of more than 100 parameters for measurement or classification of cells in monochrome or color images. The user can measure all the objects in the image or can define filters that restrict the measurements to objects meeting specific criteria. Four interactive modes allow the user to point and click back and forth between the objects in the image window and data displayed in a table, histogram or scatterplot. Data can be exported to a spreadsheet or a text file for further analysis.
