Microscope Imaging Software

All SPOT cameras come with SPOT Basic software, the user friendly imaging application that makes it simple to capture high quality images.

You can expand your capabilities by adding the modular SPOT Advanced software, which provides tools for fluorescence imaging and database archival, and supports modules for intensity display scaling, extended depth of focus processing, and peripheral device control.

Image analysis tasks like automated counting, deconvolution, thresholding and multi-dimensional imaging can also be accomplished with your SPOT camera using MetaMorph software and the SPOT camera driver.

Imaging Software Applications

SPOT Insight Gigabit Ethernet microscope camera

SPOT Basic Image Capture Software

The SPOT Basic software is a comprehensive but straightforward interface with features designed for microscopy imaging. Its interface includes pre-configured settings for different microscope illumination types so that the camera is optimized for your specific use. Image previewing is enhanced with the magnifier and focus gauge in the SPOT Basic live window interface. It provides user-friendly reports, reticles, measurements, calibration marks, time lapse, annotations, and automatic white balance features that make it simple to acquire impressive images.
