NEW! Quick Tip Video Tutorial: A new set of quick tip video tutorials are available for the INFINITY ANALYZE Windows software. These short videos focus on specific tasks within the INFINITY ANALYZE software.

Auto Exposure Upper Limit: Set the upper boundary for the Continuous Auto Exposure function to improve the camera response to changes in light level, particularly when rotating the turret of objectives.

Menu Short Cut Keys: Reduce mouse click repetition by using hot keys to gain access to application functions.

COMING SOON! INFINITY ANALYZE 6.5.0: A new fluorescence image acquisition wizard is being introduced in INFINITY ANALYZE with the upcoming release 6.5.0 – due to be available for download before the end of 2014.  This wizard allows color tints to be applied to specific stains, and provides exposure and gain controls for each channel.  Itprovides a step by step image capture sequence and produces the color composite when all images are collected.  Each image can be manipulated with an interactive histogram tool, or can have auto black-level and stretch options applied.

INFINITY CAPTURE FOR MAC UPDATE: The INFINITY CAPTURE for Mac application has been modified so that captured images can now be saved directly to file, without the need to use a plug-in for ImageJ.  The new update to the INFINITY CAPTURE for Mac should be posted to the web site before the end of November.
