BETHESDA, Md. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — September 8, 2011 — Media Cybernetics is pleased to announce the release of AutoQuant version X3 image deconvolution and 5D visualization software. AutoQuant X3 delivers the most complete suite of 2D and 3D deconvolution algorithms available for all microscopic modalities. Save time and money using the industry’s best blind algorithms that calculate adaptive Point Spread Functions (PSF) without spending countless hours capturing images of beads, or opt to supply measured PSF images for AutoQuant to process related volumes quickly and easily.
New features in AutoQuant X3 enable users to generate the best possible quantitative results. These additions include an ROI deconvolution preview to help verify settings quickly and effortlessly, a new auto-detection algorithm for identifying sample dimensions such as sample refractive index (RI) and sample distance from cover slip. Also added is an innovative Point Spread Function modeling algorithm to customize a PSF unique to your optical system, accounting for shape and spherical aberration at once simultaneously.
AutoQuant X3 brings additional change with an all-new technology, known as AutoQuant CONNECT. This sophisticated workflow accelerator, available for single-user workstations, connects many of your imaging software applications without additional effort. From your partnering software application, a single click can trigger an automatic connection with AutoQuant X3 (installed on the same PC), send the active CONNECT Image Set, deconvolve the set using any of AutoQuant’s industry-leading algorithms, and complete the connection by returning the image set to the partnering software application.
“I believe AutoQuant CONNECT to be the most aggressive move by a software company to streamline each user’s integrated imaging workflow,” emphasizes Nick Beavers, AutoQuant Product Manager. “Today, everyone is using more than one software application and this technology will, without a doubt, save users of AutoQuant X3 valuable time and effort. We have much to look forward to as we continue to add more CONNECT partners. This type of technology will only increase in value over time.”
Additionally, several existing AutoQuant features have been extensively improved. Enhancements include an all-new high-resolution interface, the addition of synchronized line profiles for validation and comparative examination, the addition of deconvolution and optical settings files able to be used across multiple systems, and improvements to deconvolution speeds, batch processing load times, and 5D viewer capabilities.
AutoQuant X3 is now available to new and existing customers who want to experience imaging at its finest. Contact your local AutoQuant reseller for pricing and availability. Request a free trial version of AutoQuant X3 at www.autoquant.com
