Efficient operation and image analysis

You can achieve your goals quickly with the LAS X software thanks to a cleverly laid out user interface where relevant tools are only one click away. Get to your results even faster by using measurement templates that reduce manual steps.

And there are more capabilities that ensure efficiency for everyday use including:

  • Enhanced imaging with stitching in X, Y, and Z even for large sample areas
  • Batch import for large data sets
  • Recalibration for imported images for flexibility across systems

Fast reliable results with LAS X Navigator

You can create fast overviews of your samples, identify regions of interest (ROIs) instantly, and set up automatic high-resolution image acquisition with LAS X Navigator.

Navigator allows you to define multiple ROIs for multi-sample scanning and merging, no matter the sample geometry. You can also use the Assay Editor to set up user-defined sample holders. Additionally, there is the possibility to combine multi-sample acquisition with an automatic image analysis process.*

Your benefits when using Navigator

  • Reproducible workflows for image acquisition and analysis
  • Efficient image analysis
  • Reduced chance of  human errors influencing results

* N.B.: License for the Image Analysis module is required (not part of the Navigator).

Extend LAS X capabilities for image acquisition and documentation of single images

Name Description
LAS X User Management Create user groups with different access levels. Allow or restrict individual functionalities for respective access levels.
LAS X Extended Annotation Annotate your images with text in various fonts and colors, graphics, or measurements. 
LAS X Measurements Measure parameters, such as the length, area, diameter, angle, or perimeter of objects you mark with adjustable tracing lines, drawing directly in the live images. Add labels for easy analysis. Apply measurements to several images to determine statistical trend and compare data in measurement templates. Apply long-distance measurements that span more than a single field of view.
LAS X Reticule Display digital reticules, such as grain size, lines, circles, cross hairs and counting grids, on real-time images as electronic overlays for inspection, measurement, point counting, and comparison. Unlike eyepiece reticules, digital reticules adjust to the magnification or zoom of the microscope.
LAS X Live Stream Movie Capture images at set time intervals automatically to create movies to stream. Download as individual images or AVI files.

Extend LAS X capabilities for image acquisition, measurement and analysis in 2D and 3D

Name Description
LAS X Live Image Builder Create images that are bigger than a single field of view. Obtain a single in-focus image, if shallow depth of field provides only a partly focused image.
LAS X Z-Control & SW Autofocus Create a single sharp image by capturing a stack of images at different focus positions and combining them automatically into an Extended Depth of Focus (EDOF) image.
LAS X Extended Depth of Field Create sharp 2D images from several partially in-focus images. In connection with the 3D Surface Viewer, creation of 3D images is also possible.
LAS X Stitching Create 2D images from multiple tiled images captured automatically. Obtain a spiral scan to capture only the region which interests you most. Single images can be retrieved and analyzed with LAS X 2D Analysis.
LAS X 3D Surface Viewer View 3D surfaces created from LAS X Extended Depth of Field.
LAS X 3D Surface Measurements Measure 3D surfaces created from LAS X Extended Depth of Field in the LAS X 3D Surface Viewer.
