Carl Zeiss Expands ZEN Software to Drive all Zeiss Microscope Systems
Carl Zeiss has expanded ZEN imaging software to drive all ZEISS light microscope systems.
With ZEN 2011 users will experience one identical software interface for all their microscopy experiments. This offers synergies for research institutes using several microscopy technologies. The software meets the requirements of various user groups with different software packages: ZEN pro, ZEN lite and ZEN desk module packages.
The heart of ZEN is Smart Setup. Users select the fluorophores used in their samples. Smart Setup features intelligent functions that suggest a few different configurations appropriate for the fluorophores in the sample. Users can then decide which parameters to optimize for their experiments, such as image acquisition or maximum resolution. Smart Setup automatically configures the system based on this input.
◦ Optimized for recording several gigabytes of large image data sets
◦ Storage of high-speed dual camera time lapse series synchronously and reliably on the interlocked hard disk drives.
◦ Image stacks, time lapse series or tile images are saved in the .czi format
◦ Generation of 3D projections and exportation of them as rendering or a film sequence.
ZEN software was launched by Carl Zeiss for confocal laser scanning microscopes in 2007.
