Openlab a modular concept

Openlab has been designed as a modular product to provide you with the freedom to make the right choices to fit with your budget, imaging requirements and existing hardware. Select the modules that you need today, then increase the functionality of your Openlab system using additional modules in the future as your needs change and develop. A great way to ensure that you spend only what you really need to!

User friendly software a refreshing change!

Openlab is easy to use because it has been designed to be intuitive. The user interface to hardware and software functionality is through palettes that are simple to understand and share many features in common. This means that Openlab is quick to learn and results can be achieved in the minimum of time, increasing your imaging productivity. You can even configure the appearance of the software to your personal preferences, and by using a secure log-in, you can prevent other system users from interfering with your settings.

The Openlab Family groups of modules built around a common core

At the heart of Openlab is the core product, designed for image acquisition, measurement, presentation and publication. For some applications, such as simple single channel imaging, this may be all you require. To perform more complex experiments, you need to add selected modules to the core to configure the required combination of hardware and software. To create experimental protocols for automatic image acquisition, processing and analysis you can use the Automator, a unique visual programming language.

To complete you imaging system requirements, Openlab supports all the major scientific grade microscopes, a wide range of monochrome and color cameras, Z focus drives, XY stages, filter wheels, shutters and monochromators.

Openlab Module Groups
Openlab modules are collected together into groups depending on their functionality.

File Filter modules allow the import and export of images in standard file formats including PICT, PICS, TIFF and QuickTime. Images can therefore be easily transferred between software programs and platforms and shared with colleagues.

Camera modules provide control of features including exposure, gain, offset, auto exposure and binning.

Hardware modules to control any external equipment (except the camera) are included in the Hardware Module Bundle.

Application modules provide specific software functionality to the Openlab system and allow you to carry out complex image processing and analysis tasks. The range of functions is extensive and includes deconvolution, 3D imaging, morphological measurements, ratio and FRET imaging, colocalization and image registration.

Automation modules provide the means to create imaging experiments. The Openlab core comes complete with the Automator Lite, but greater power and flexibility is conferred by the optional Automator Pro Bundle .

Need a network version to provide a multi-user facility?
