[Histonet] Fw: Reading Leica LIF files - general question on databasing
I'm another Catalyser user and have been for many years.
It's flexible, friendly and easy to use.

Search the CONFOCAL archive at
You might consider looking at "Catalyzer" from
Axiope (www.axiope.com). It is a very versatile
cataloging system, and can be downloaded for
free for use on a single computer, if you want to
try it, but the full version runs with a server.
I'm currently implementing Catalyzer in my own
work, and I find it very easy to use and
extremely flexible. It comes with Leica-import
filters, although I haven't tried those yet.
(I have no commercial interest)
