Pixcavator is not only "as simple as a calculator", it's also as universally applicable as a calculator. It is not designed for any particular field of science or a particular type of images. It's based on math and math only. That's what makes Pixcavator as broadly used as it is. Just look at the journal titles below (in bold)!

These publications, that I am aware of, used Pixcavator and cellAnalyst as a tool and specifically give credit to our software:

It is understandable that there aren't more academic references. Pixcavator is like a calculator and you don't give credit to Texas Instruments every time you push a few buttons...

Some details of some of these papers:

More examples here (and here).

Note: Dear authors, I would greatly appreciate if you both acknowledge the use of the software: "Pixcavator by Intelligent Perception", and cite one of my papers, most likely this one:

Links to this site will also be greatly appreciated. You can also get a free license...
