The most sophisticated of the three packages, NIS-Elements Ar is optimized for advanced research applications. It features fully automated acquisition and device control through full 6D image acquisition and analysis.
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.
Advanced Research (AR) Package
NIS-Elements AR is optimized for advanced research applications. It features fully automated acquisition and device control through full six-dimensional image acquisition and analysis.
The software is designed to deliver power and maximize workflow. It handles multi-dimensional imaging flawlessly, with support for capture, display, peripheral device control and data management and analysis of up to six dimensions (X,Y,Z,Lambda(wavelength),T, multi stage points). It also offers sophisticated image processing and visualization features, such as a 5D viewer, automated object counting, intensity measurements over time, image stitching, deconvolution, databasing and Extended Depth of Focus functions.
The system contributes to experiment efficiency with a database building feature developed to handle archiving and searching 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.
3D/2D Real Time Deconvolution
Haze and blur of the fluorescence image can be eliminated from the captured 3D image or from the 2D live preview image. (Separate Module for 3D and 2DRT).
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.
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.
