RE: [Histonet] digital image analysis systems

From:caron fournier

Dear Richard and Chen:As David said there are many out there and no one does everything so the best way is the figure out specifically what you want it to be able to do and then get some demo's as you mentioned. If the company is any good they should be able to show you what their software can do with your specific data. If they can not do this then RUN because you will not get the support you want or need with these kind of complicated software packages. One of the one's that you may want to look at is Image Pro by Media Cybernetics ( This has biological as well as industrial applications but can be specially designed to your needs by the use of macros. It is (depending on the application) sometimes not user friendly but none of the high end applications are unless you know about image analysis and computers. This company though does have some very knowledgeable people and does run training courses regularly. But, the most important thing is to see if it works with your
 application and data and to see if the local rep knows what they are doing or you will be frustrated. They also have a users group forum like this one that you can pick other's brains on.

The commercial packagescan be very expensive and usually don't live up to expectation.One of the best is free from NIH!! you let me know your specific need I can be a bit more specific.David Finkelstein (PhD),The Mental Health Research Institute of Victoria, Fri, 8 Dec 2006 11:56:26 -0500From: "Chen, Shu-Cheng" Subject: RE: [Histonet] digital image analysis systems...To: Cc: "Breckenridge, Richard A" Message-ID:    <>Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"I am interested in this information too.

Am in the process of acquiering a IHC stainer on a reagent rental basis and its come down to either the Biocare Nemesis or the Lab Vision stainer. (Both are exactly the same. ) I am currently using the Biocare Mach 4 detection system and biocare and Dako antibodies, both of which I'm very happy with. I have had no experience with Lab Vision products and would hate to have to change my protocols to fit their products if they're inferior to Biocares. I'm at a VA hospital and am forced to go with GSA contract vendors. If I get a stainer now it would have to be Lab Vision as they have a GSA contract. I could also wait until Biocare gets a GSA which is what I'm thinking right now. Any comments on this????------------------------------_______________________________________________Histonet mailing listHistonet@lists.utsouthwestern.edu of Histonet Digest, Vol 37, Issue 11****************************************__________________________________________________Do You Yahoo!?Tired of spam?
