Extracting data
from microscopy images

What We Do.

NanoImage, part of the Jaqpot Platform, offers tools for analysis of electron microscopy images, allowing the user to derive descriptors for the materials directly from the images, offering distinct advantage over manual procedures, in terms of speed and ability to represent the whole sample. It is not up to the microscope operator to capture measurements that express the frequency of occurrence of materials with certain dimensions/shapes or the presence of materials with outlier dimensions/shapes.

The foundation of the application is the popular open source ImageJ software, used extensively within the research community, which the UPCI team made available as a web application.

Spherical materials

Apart from the descriptors derived from ImageJ, we offer additional descriptors (porosity, sphericity, surface diameter, equivalent volume to surface, equivalent volume diameter).

Carbon Nanotubes

We currently offer width calculations, while other descriptor services are being developed. We welcome comments on the efficacy other elongated structures, such as wires, nanowires or nanorods.
