NIS-Elements Br is suited for standard research applications, such as analysis and photodocumentation of fluorescent imaging. It features acquisition and device control through 4D acquisition.
Nikon's NIS-Elements revolutionizes imaging software for the microscopy market by combining automated intelligence to microscopes, cameras, components and peripherals with powerful archiving, analysis, visualization and achiving tools. Its intuitive interface simplifies workflow and makes fast acquisition possible while providing powerful features such as large image stitching, automated object counting, 3D volume rendering, high dynamic range, extended depth of focus, and ratio and FRET analysis.
Basic Research (BR) Package
NIS-Elements BR is suited for standard research applications such as analysis and photodocumentation of fluorescent imaging. It features up to four dimensional acquisition capabilities and advanced device control capabilities.
While not as full featured as the Advanced Research module, BR offers access to advanced image capture, archiving and analysis solutions that are are easy-to-use and provide maximum workflow.
NIS-Elements has a powerful image database module that supports image and meta data. Various databases & tables can easily be created and images can be saved to the database via one simple mouse-click. Filtering, sorting and multiple grouping are also available according to the database field given for each image.
BR handles multi-dimensional imaging with ease, with support for capture, display, peripheral device control, and data management and analysis of up to four dimensions (for example: X,Y,Z, Lambda (wavelength)). It also provides advanced image processing features, such as automated image count, intensity over time, database capabilities and report generation, and Extended Depth of Focus functions.
The system contributes to experiment efficiency with a database building feature developed to handle archiving, searching, and analysis of large numbers of multi-dimensional image files. Unified control of the entire imaging system offers significant benefits to users for cutting-edge research, such as live cell imaging.
NIS-Elements can combine X, Y, Z, Lambda (wavelength), Time, and Multi Stage Points within one integrated platform for multi-dimensional imaging (depends on the capability of the software). All combinations of multidimensional images can be linked together in one ND2 file sequence using an efficient workflow and intuitive GUI.
Extended Depth of Focus
With the Extended Depth of Focus (EDF) module, images that have been captured in a different Z-axis can be used to create an all-in focus image. Also, it is possible to create stereovision images & 3D surface images to achieve virtual 3D imaging.
