Whether using a digital camera, optical microscope, SEM, or TEM to acquire your images, Image-Pro provides innovative solutions to analyze and report the results of your image analysis.
Developing and improving the world through better materials is a difficult and demanding undertaking. Improving the functionality, durability, and quality of items we interact with every day allows for a better, cleaner, and more sustainable world. Media Cybernetics focuses on simplifying your processes so you can spend more time improving the materials around us.
Ceramics, Composites and Plastics
Whether using optical or electron microscopy imaging systems, Image-Pro provides intuitive workflows and protocol development to consistently measure ceramic particles or other similar materials.
Whether performing quality assurance on incoming ingredients, optimizing processes, or analyzing a final product, Image-Pro provides a range of solutions for the food manufacturing and producing industries.
Count, measure the size, and receive contextual information about your analyzed particles by adding the Particle Counting APP to your configuration.
The analysis of metals in either a quality assurance or research environments may be quickly analyzed using Image-Pro, an image analysis software for metallurgy.
For certain types of analysis, APPs have been developed to provide a complete step-by-step analysis routine.
Particles and Porous Materials
Porous materials and their properties may be studied to find the number of pores per area and pore size distribution and generate a statistical analysis of pore sizes.
With the addition of the Image-Pro 3D Module, pore volumes and parameters may also be calculated for 3D samples from FIB-SEM and Micro-CT instruments.
The development of new cosmetics provides several imaging challenges when analyzing the results of application of cosmetics to skin, eyelashes, or hair. Image-Pro works with researchers in the cosmetics industry to develop a variety of innovative image analysis solutions.
One of the image analysis challenges in the cosmetics industry is to have consistent imaging conditions for proper analysis. The Image-Pro CIE L*a*b color normalization/analysis tool provides this solution by using the LAB color model for analysis, providing consistent analysis of treatments over time.
Glass, Films and Coatings
Finding defects in glass or the analyzing biofilms are among a wide variety of images analysis applications supported by Image-Pro.
For example, Image-Pro allows for the quick determination of a coating layer's thickness, allowing the software to measure the mean, max, min and standard deviation of the coating layer thickness."
Materials image analysis represents an especially challenging problem for researchers analyzing the size, shape, and conformation of materials - especially when it is necessary to analyze the material beyond a single field of view or in it’s entirety.
Using the optional Capture Module for Image-Pro, multiple fields of view are automatically stitched together providing a larger than the field of view calibrated image - which may then be analyzed.
A sophisticated tiling and normalization tool is available to not only stitch images together from large scans, also to provide a 2 pass correction for uneven shading.
Textiles & Fibers
Carbon, natural, or synthetic fibers are used in a variety of manufactured goods and industries. The Fiber Separation and Fiber Thickness APPs for Image-Pro can be used to measure fiber length and thickness - even when analyzing overlapping fibers.
Using Advanced Fourier Analysis (FFT), the orientation of fibers may also be determined.
