Introduction MCID™ Core is a complete imaging software solution. MCID™ Core can be optimized and configured for single applications based on specific user requirements. MCID™ will accept image files in many formats and is an ideal host for phosphor imagers, laser scanners, scanning densitometers and similar devices. Camera support is via many of the compatible digital cameras such as the CoolSNAP or Qimaging range. With the addition of an MCID™ Analogue PCI imaging board MCID™ can also acquire images with most analog cameras
MCID™ Core is available as an off the shelf software solution or as part of a number of software/hardware "packages" optimized for specific applications. Optimized MCID™ Systems by application include:

General Densitometry The MCID™ Densitometry System has served thousands of scientists for over 15 years. The system includes calibrations and corrections which are easily applied to yield precise quantitative and semiquantitative data.The MCID™ Densitometry System can be used with a wide variety of cameras, scanners and phosphor images.
Fluorescence microscopy The MCID™ Fluorescence System captures, analyzes and manipulates fluorescence images with ease. Measure label intensity, combine discrete fluors, use for co-localization and clarify using digital deconvolution. The MCID™ Fluorescence System supports video and digital cameras, color or monochrome, standard, chilled or cooled. Cryogenic cameras are supported for the most demanding applications.
Gel/blot analysis MCID™ acquires, annotates, archives, prints and quantifies images of your gels and blots. Use MCID™ as a simple archival system or take advantage of the extensive list of analysis functions. Digitize your specimens with any input device, including scanners, and video or digital cameras.
Automated image stitching The MCID™ Image Stitching System automatically merges multiple fields of view into a single, large image. The image is seamless, sharply focused and has high resolution. Create spectacular, high quality images. Ideal for visualizing details within a larger biological framework and for high quality publication.
Stereology The MCID™ Stereology module applies commonly used stereological measures including volume, surface area, length and counts to your images. Integrate stereology within the broad function set of your MCID™ image analyzer. Add a motorised stage controller to enable the optical fractionator wizard. Microscope stages are available to retrofit to any make and model of microscope.
Grain, Cell & General Target Counting MCID™'s thresholding facility allows the user to threshold valid targets and apply morphological criteria, pass or reject objects for analysis based on many criteria such as size and shape. The threshold can than be applied to parts of the image or all of image as the user sees fit. Coupling thresholding and our AutoScan A & B tools users can remove the need to manually trace regions of interest.
MCID™ Offers a powerful multipurpose image suite that would be a welcomed edition to any facility. That's why MCID™ has over 3000+ users worldwide from many of the worlds leading Pharmaceutical Companies, Universities and Research Facilities.
