Capturing high-resolution images

Observation of liver tissues

Function used

The liver is well known for having many important roles, including metabolism, excretion, and digestion, and a lot of research has been conducted on related symptoms such as fatty liver, liver cirrhosis, and liver cancer.
Conventionally, several different areas throughout a liver section have to be observed because the section itself is too large to fit within a single field-lf-view of a microscope.

Image Stitching

Objective lens: CFI Plan Apo λ20x
Image stitching: 19 x 19 images

Saved at full resolution

Segment and quantify individual areas using high-resolution images.

Once you have the BZ-X:

For large sections that do not fit in the field-of-view, a single high-resolution image can be obtained by stitching several images captured while the stage is moving.

From multiple images captured at different planes in the Z direction, just the focused sections can be combined to create a fully-focused image of the entire specimen, even if the specimen is tilted or has height differences.

Hybrid Cell Count enables the user to extract only target cells from the entire section and automatically calculate their ratio.

Based on the conditions extracted using Hybrid Cell Count,
Macro Cell Count can be used for batch processing of several images.
