The Olympus cellSens deconvolution solution module employs a constrained iterative (CI) algorithm to remove out-of-focus blur in advanced life science imaging. This high-speed operation provides extremely sharp images, as well as near confocal quality, with the ability to correct for any spherical aberrations.

Using a specialized algorithm developed exclusively for Olympus, the deconvolution solution module can provide advanced, high-speed image restoration. Maximizing modern PC computing capabilities, it leverages multi-core processor architectures to provide a powerful deconvolution facility, enabling the sharpening of even the most blurred images. Consequently, users can obtain a deconvolution, removing the complex parameter adjustment steps required with other advanced de-blurring algorithms.

The resulting high-quality image stacks can be visualized in three dimensions, using the VoxelViewer to display structures and ISO projections via a simple click of the mouse. This enables more in-depth analysis, with the capability to display stereo adaptations of the image. Furthermore, the online de-blur functionality enables users to visualize the deconvoluted images during the live operation of the camera.

A broad range of image types can be deconvolved using the Olympus deconvolution solution module, including fluorescence, confocal and brightfield. With the additional capability to perform blind deconvolution, the software is able to use a theoretical point spread function (PSF), adapting it to the specific data. Furthermore, the PSF calculation can be saved and applied when performing subsequent deconvolutions. In addition, images obtained from non-Olympus systems are also easily imported.
