Whether using a digital camera, optical microscope, SEM or TEM to acquire your images, Image-Pro includes innovative solutions to analyze and report the analysis results.
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 has focused on simplifying your work so focus less on software and more on improving 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 the analysis of a final product, Image-Pro provides a range of solutions for the food manufacturing and producing industry.
In additional to counting and sizing of particles, the analyzed particles can be viewed in additional ways to provide contextual information.
The analysis of metals in either a quality assurance or research environment may be quickly analyzed using Image-Pro.
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 characterized using such information as the number of pores per area, pore size distribution and statistical analysis of pore size.
For 3D samples from FIB-SEM and Micro-CT instruments, pore volumes and parameters may also be calculated using the optional Image-Pro 3D Module.
The development of new cosmetics provides several imaging challenges when analyzing the results of application of cosmetics to skin, eyelashes or hair. Image-Pro working with researchers in the cosmetics industry have developed many innovative image analysis solutions.
One of the image analysis challenges is to have consistent imaging conditions for proper analysis. The CIE L*a*b color normalization/analysis tool provides this solution by using the LAB color model for analysis the feature provides for the consistent analysis of treatments over time.
Glass, Films and Coatings
Finding such features as defects in glass or the analysis of biofilms are among a wide variety of images analysis applications supported through the use of Image-Pro.
One such example is measuring the layer thickness of a coating. Image-Pro allows for the quick determination of the coating edges, which allow for the software to measure the mean, max, min and standard deviation of the coating layer thickness.
Materials analysis represents an especially challenging problem for researchers analyzing the size, shape and conformation of materials when it is necessary to analyze the material beyond a single field of view or in it’s entirety.
Using the optional Capture Module,, 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, but will also provide a 2 pass correction for uneven shading.
Textile & Fibers
Carbon, natural or synthetic fibers are used in a variety of manufactured goods and industries. The available Fiber Separation Application is used to measure fiber length and thickness.
Using the advance Fourier analysis (FFT), the orientation of fibers may also be determined.
