More Power and Flexibility for Live Cell Imaging SoftwareAndor12, Belfast, Ireland
Belfast, Northern Ireland, 5 November 2008 - Andor Technology plc (Andor), a world leader in scientific imaging and spectroscopy solutions, today announce the latest release of its flagship live cell imaging software; iQ 1.9. The upgrade will allow greater flexibility and power for all its users.
iQ 1.9 builds considerably on the previous version (1.8.1), released in March 2008, and is intended to be the last release before the much anticipated iQ 2.0.
Notable updates include enhanced FRAPPA software support; enabling multi-region bleaching both live and within a protocol. The FRAPPA Calibration Wizard has also been upgraded to store multiple calibration files for different hardware configurations. Multi-field acquisition functionality has been extended by enabling autofocus (Olympus ZDC and Nikon PFS) control at all fields. While support for the CoolLED PrecisExcite LED illuminator enables Andor iQ users to gain access to the many benefits of this technology.
On the processing and analysis front, a new filter plug-in provides a range of convolution filters and morphological operators.
Dr. Mark Browne, Market Development Manager within Andor, commented; We have invested much time and effort into our final release of iQ 1.x generation. This update offers substantial benefits over the previous versions and upholds iQs position as a leader in live cell imaging software.
