Keck Microscopy Facility
There are several computers available for image analysis. Which one you choose will depend on what you are trying to accomplish and what software you are comfortable using. Every Keck Center user has access to these computers at no charge for analyzing images collected with the Keck Center's microscopes.
A wicked fast and powerful 64-bit windows PC running the DeltaVision SoftWorx program from Applied Precision. It is used to deconvolve image stacks. It also has 3D visualization and analysis tools from Imaris that can be used on the resulting deconvolved image sets. This is a PC that runs several advanced analysis programs: MetaMorph, Zeiss LSM 510 confocal software, Zeiss Image Examiner, ImageJ, Leica's TCS Lite, PFRET for analysis of FRET images, and VisBio for 3D analysis. This computer also has PhotoShop and Canvas for producing publication-quality figures and is connected to the Keck Center's color inkjet printer. A powerful Windows computer (despite the name -- it is NOT a Linux system) running the SoftWorx Suite program from Applied Precision. It is used to deconvolve image stacks, and has 3D visualization and analysis tools that can be used on the resulting deconvolved image sets.
