New products and new versions
New versions of Aphelion™ Dev, Aphelion SDK, and Aphelion Lab
Learn more about the latest version of Aphelion Imaging Software Suite.
A new range of camera interfaces
The interface to the Lumenera Infinity camera series is now available in the Aphelion Imaging Software Suite products (Dev, Lab and SDK). Lumenera Infinity cameras are research-grade and cooled cameras for microscopy providing high-quality images.
The interface to the Diagnostic Instruments Spot camera series is now available in the Aphelion Imaging Software Suite products (Dev, Lab and SDK). Diagnostic Instruments Spot cameras are scientific digital cameras for microscopy from easy to use color CMOS cameras for brightfield microscopy to ultra-sensitive CCD imagers for low light fluorescence applications.
The interface to the IDS uEye camera series (GigE uEye and USB uEye) is also available in the Aphelion Imaging Software Suite products (Dev, Lab and SDK). IDS GmbH is providing a large range of cameras, including VGA and 18 megapixel sensors, for both USB and Ethernet (GigE) interfaces. It is worth mentioning the performance/price ratio of IDS cameras is really competitive.
A universal camera interface is also available in Aphelion to control most of the USB cameras: DirectShow driver.
Stage control with Aphelion
Stage Controller Extension is now available as an optional extension of the Aphelion Imaging Software Suite. The stage of
an optical microscope can be fully automated and controlled with the help of this extension. It currently supports the following
stepper motor controllers:
New classification tools for Aphelion
New classification tools are now available in the
Aphelion Imaging Software Suite:
Virtual Image Stitcher, the software to stitch small images into a large one
The process of stitching a large series of overlapping subimages that cannot be captured in a single image requires a powerful software that frees the user from any manual interaction. Virtual Image Stitcher is one of the very few products available commercially that creates an image of an entire sample placed on the stage of a scanning or optical microscope. VIS has been successfully used to generate images up to 40 Gigabytes from a series of overlapping sub-images captured at high magnification in a rectangular grid pattern.
Software for Stereological analysis
Stereology Analyzer is a simple to use software tool for quickly and reliably estimating the local surface of a region in a large image and to estimate the 3D volume. A plugin version for ImageScope is also available.
The 3D Image display has been upgraded
The 3D Image Display Extension is now available as an optional extension of the Aphelion Imaging Software Suite. It includes new features and new rendering capabilities. It also takes benefit of new 64 bit PC systems to handle and process very large 3D images.
Many new features are available in version 4 of Aphelion
Since 1996, Aphelion Dev has been providing powerful tools to prototype and quickly deploy imaging applications to users worldwide. A major upgrade of this software product is now available, providing a lot of new features: support of 64-bit environments, plug-and-play interface to FireWire cameras1, and an intuitive graphical user interface dedicated to both expert and non-expert users in the fields of image processing and image analysis. Aphelion Dev also includes four scripting languages to help the user developing powerful applications: BasicScript (now available for both the 32 and 64 bit environments), Python, widely used by researchers to quickly develop and prototype applications, Visual C# and Visual Basic.
A new macro language available in Aphelion
Aphelion, Image Analysis for everyone
Aphelion Lab: This new software product lets users quickly create effective analysis projects for digital images acquired from a microscope, a copy stands, and other acquisition devices. A set of easy-to-use interfaces let Lab users compute measurements on objects of interest in images, and quickly generate analysis reports. The use of Aphelion Lab does not require to have a background in Image Processing or Image Analysis. The product has been designed to be used by non experts nim Computer Vision who wish to quickly capture an image, segment objects of interest, edit those objects and generate a report that includes statistics on measurements computed on the objects.
The powerful library of image processing and image analysis is now available using .Net
Aphelion SDK: The release of the Aphelion imaging components based on the Microsoft® .NET Framework is now available. The components are based on the native components of Aphelion 4.0 that fully support 64-bit architectures and Windows® XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1, and 10 operating systems.
