Olympus has released a database solution module for its cellSens Dimension software suite that aims to help users with workflow management and make it easier to capture, process, and store images.
The module lets users store images in a structured system hierarchy and organize them based on classifications such as experiment, project, or job. The tool also lets users search and retrieve data using customizable metadata and includes extensive search functions and pre-defined search templates.
Furthermore, the solution integrates with existing network infrastructure to provide a centralized data server based on Microsoft SQL Server Express and enables users to access and share images, data, and observations.
Olympus' cellSens Dimension software package provides several features for microscope-based investigations, with additional functionality provided by the optional solution modules, namely 5D Multichannel, Multi-position, Count and Measure, CI Deconvolution, Database, and Netcam. The system lets users perform experiments such as extended focal imaging, multiple image alignment, and multi-position imaging.
