cellAnalyst 2.0 released

Filed under: releases, image processing/image analysis software — Peter @ 6:26 pm

We are happy to announce the release of cellAnalyst version 2.0!

Just to remind you, cellAnalyst by AssaySoft Inc. is an advanced image-mining tool in a user-friendly package. It is designed to automate the analysis of digital images, especially ones coming from cell biology. It works as follows:

  1. The images are initially presented in a photo album format.
  2. With just a few clicks, cells have been detected, captured, and measured.
  3. The cells are listed in a table along with their characteristics.
  4. Each such table is saved as an entry in a searchable database.

Items 2 and 3 came originally from Pixcavator.

Now, the main new feature in version 2.0 is Partial Analysis. Analysis of images may be a time consuming task especially when the analysis setting have to be determined by trial and error. To reduce the processing time, one may start with analysis of just a portion of the image. The user draws a rectangle around a cell, and the analysis instantly determines its size and contrast. These two numbers are then used as the settings for the analysis of the entire image. More will appear in the wiki under Analysis strategy.

Other improvements are these:

  • The roundness of every object found in the image is computed and displayed in the output table.
  • Image enhancement functions are added: you can adjust brightness, contrast, color balance, gamma correction, and saturation.
  • The estimated processing time is computed and displayed so that the user can plan ahead.
  • Annotation can be added to images; it can later be used for search.
