Streampix software Norpix
Deconvolution  
AutoDeBlur (Win 2000, XP)             $2,500 - 9,400
offers the most powerful Deconvolution tools available, including AutoQuant's proprietary Blind Deconvolution, which is both iterative and constrained, yet unlike other deconvolution products, it does not require the manual calibration and measurement of the point spread function (PSF). Instead, it constructs the PSF directly from the collected data set. AutoDeblur works with Widefield Epi-Fluorescence, DIC, Transmitted-Light Brightfield and most Confocal microscopes including Two-Photon and Spinning Disk.  AutoDeblur is a multi-dimensional platform, capable of handling 3D time-series datasets; instead of loading each time point one at a time, and processing them through a batch process, they can be loaded and processed as a single dataset.  Another advantage of AutoDeblur is the ability to load a nearly limitless number of channels, freeing you from the constraints of RGB.  Advanced researchers are increasingly using multiple lasers and dyes, and AutoQuant steps up to let their image processing be limited by their hardware rather than their software. In addition, users also have full control over the display of each channel.

Multi-Dimensional Visualization  
AutoVisualize-3D (Win 2000, XP)            $4,400
The goal of creating, enhancing, and saving images is to see, analyze and measure them, from all angles. AutoVisualize will let you do just that. With AutoQuant's 5D Viewer, time-series datasets can be rotated through time to any angle, an orthogonal slice can be moved through the dataset, you can create movies showing the full rotation of the dataset, and multiple projections are available for dynamic display of your dataset.  Side by side before and after comparison has never been easier than now with AutoQuant X’s multiPreviewer capability. Multiple concurrent 5D Viewers can be opened and synchronized for striking comparisons of data. Use the Movie Maker feature to create an .avi   file of a movie as your data rotates through time, and use it in a PowerPoint presentation, or post it to the web.  With AutoVisualize® , you can measure distances between objects, measure the surface area and volume of objects, and calculate statistics on the dataset.  Once deconvolving and viewing the dataset is complete, analysis is the next step. With AutoVisualize, you can measure distances between objects, measure the surface area and volume of objects, and calculate statistics on the dataset.
