The original Mother Goose nursery rhyme pretty much described the difficulty in reassembling a delicate and complicated 3D structure:
Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall;
All the king’s horses and all the king’s men
Couldn’t put Humpty together again.
Although today’s challenges faced by industry leaders and cutting-edge research are not reassembling broken eggs, the obstacles are just as daunting. Individual 2D images do not provide information about depth, volume, or features hidden above or below the plane of focus, which makes understanding a 3D structure difficult.
The ability to acquire 3D data has existed for quite a while through confocal, deconvolution, and serial sections, however, the software to reassemble the images and make critical measurements has been slow to develop. Furthermore, making the 3D measurements straightforward for average users has been even more challenging.
Based on over 30 years of input from Image-Pro software users, Image-Pro Premier 3D brings breakthrough technology to users, offering intuitive tools that make it easy to import, visualize, process, measure, and share your image sets and valuable data.
The new Image-Pro Premier 3D offers robust 64-bit support, a user-friendly interface, multi-dimensional visualization, 3D volume measurements, object counting, 3D manual measurements, custom movie making, reporting, and many tools for customizing your workflow.
In addition to the powerful 3D measurement tools, Image-Pro Premier 3D also includes all the processing and measuring capabilities of Image-Pro Premier, making for a well-rounded 2D analysis package in addition to the 3D abilities.
Measurement tools such as Smart Segmentation and the Intelligent Classifier are included in the analysis package. So whether your applications demand volume measurements or simple area measurements, Image Pro Premier 3D is ready to take on the challenge.
Included with Image Pro Premier 3D is a powerful scripting engine that will eliminate repetitive steps and batch process hundreds of images with just a few clicks. Whether you choose to build your own macro in the visual editor or write the code in visual basic, Image-Pro Premier is designed for automated 3D analysis.
Even if your 3D analysis project is seemingly impossible, the team at W. Nuhsbaum, Inc. is prepared to assist with your 3D analysis challenges. Many 3D analysis tasks can be accomplished with a series of image processing steps, which can be made simple and free from user error when automated. Save time and reduce error by working with W. Nuhsbaum, Inc. for your automated 3D analysis project.
The popular Image-Pro Premier 3D with a FREE analysis computer promotion provided by W. Nuhsbaum, Inc. has been extended to June, 30th, 2016.
Many modern computers simply are not optimized for the unique demands of the 3D rendering engine in Image-Pro Premier 3D. Companies can waste thousands of dollars on the incorrect computer and the current promotion can eliminate headaches and save money!
Microscope systems such as the Leica SPE confocal, DMi8, DM6, M205C, and Digital Microscope line are ready to acquire 3D data. When combined with the powerful analysis tools in Image-Pro Premier 3D the data generated from the Leica acquisition systems can answer questions quickly, accurately, and free of user analysis error.
Going beyond 2D imaging and analysis doesn’t have to be a mind-bending experience. With 35 years of experience in microscopy and imaging, the team at W. Nuhsbaum, Inc. is uniquely prepared to assist with your 3D acquisition and analysis needs. Contact your local W.
