Carl Zeiss, Inc.:Axio Vision Autofocus
June 4, 2001
Carl Zeiss, Inc. has introduced a new AxioVision Autofocus software module designed to make documentation of microscopic examinations reliable and accurate not only in the life sciences, but also in materials analysis and quality inspection. The new software automatically optimizes microscope and digital camera settings to take razor-sharp and clear images of specimens, and it offers users the benefit of automated and reproducible imaging. The optimum focus position is determined by digital image analysis. With manual focusing, high image definition could not always be guaranteed, especially in time-lapse imaging.
