ASI has partnered with leading imaging system providers to offer you the best choices. Instead of selling our hardware bundled with just one or two software packages, we work closely with a number of imaging partners who support our hardware. This allows us to offer our customers a wide range of solutions for their particular imaging application.
Since we have been in the imaging and photometry business for over a decade, we are happy to talk with you about your particular application and recommend a complete hardware / software package to meet your needs. We also encourage you to visit each of our imaging partners’ web sites, as they are some of the finest imaging companies in the world.
The BIOQUANT Automated Imaging Toolkit plugin to BIOQUANT NOVA employs the ASI MS-2000-XYZ motorized stage and auto-focus module to simplify diverse imaging tasks. The plugin provides time-lapse imaging of multi-welled plates and culture dishes, high speed slide documentation, and efficient user controlled motion across a slide. The ASI MS-2000-XYZ stage is also used with the BIOQUANT Stereology Toolkit plugin to BIOQUANT NOVA to provide superior closed-loop tracking of Z-axis position and dissector location. The ASI MS-2000-XY stage is tightly integrated with other BIOQUANT NOVA measurement features such as bone histomorphometry, cell counting, brain mapping, and 3D reconstruction

Objective Imaging’s Surveyor automated scanning and imaging software with Turboscan for real-time mosaic imaging enables scanning and near perfect-image mosaic creation at camera frame rates. Based on the OASIS-4i controller with either the OASIS-DC1 digital camera interface or OASIS-AF analog video processor option, Surveyor with Turboscan provides everything a microscopist needs for surveying, relocating, printing and saving at a new standard in high-performance automation.
Stereology is a stochastic geometry and probability theory-based method for estimating quantities such as total neuron number in a mouse hippocampus, or the length of fibers. Other parameters that can be estimated include volume, area fraction, and surface area of cells and regions of interest. Stereology differs from image analysis in that the technician must perform some work identifying cells of interest instead of programming a computer to do the analysis. Therefore, a large and growing demand continues to exist within the biomedical research community for computerized systems that support accurate, efficient, and user-friendly stereological analyses of biological tissue. STEREOLOGER integrates the MS-2000-XYZ motorized stage and focus drive for efficient, seamless data collection. The MS-2000-XYZ provides the Z accuracy and closed-loop control necessary for proper stereological use.
