Olympus has announced that the latest version of the software, cellSens version 1.4, will control all the automated functions and components for the company’s recently introduced BX3® series motorized microscopes.

Two motorized BX3 microscope stands, the BX53 Motorized Advanced Research Microscope and the BX43 Motorized Research and Clinical Microscope, both of which take full advantage of the new software, were introduced earlier this week.

The software controls both manual-encoded and motorized components for the two new Olympus microscope systems, including the instruments’ revolving nosepieces, fluorescence illuminators, universal condensers and the attenuation wheel that controls the intensity of the mercury light source for research fluorescence imaging. cellSens has been designed to be fully compatible with the Microsoft® Windows® 7 (32-bit) operating system.

An easy-to-use handset is available with many preset functions; the handset also can be customized so that specific hardware configurations can be turned into templates for repeated use in image capture or analysis.

With cellSens, even such advanced functions as deconvolution, cell counting, large area stitching, fluorescence unmixing and data sharing are fast. Because the interface is simple to customize, users can streamline their individual workflows to provide efficient imaging, processing, measurement, analysis and communication of their data. Measurement and analysis tools include freehand drawing and magic wand selection tools, and the system now supports basic journaling.

cellSens stores a record of all the image parameters together with each image captured, making it easy to return to the same vital settings with complete confidence in their accuracy. This envelope data storage capability also helps researchers collect, process and generate data quickly.

“Olympus requested user input to help us make the workflow even more seamless and intuitive to use. We have implemented many of these excellent suggestions in this latest cellSens release,” said Paul Jantzen, Application Specialist in the Scientific Equipment Group at Olympus. “Our customers know that we really listen.”
