Multi Focus Imaging Software

Microscope World's most popular software is the Advanced Panasis Software. One of the features of this microscope software includes the ability to capture multiple microscopy images and combine them. The manual multi-focus imaging (extended depth of focus tool) allows the combination of many unfocused images into one sharp image. This process is useful when the subject height is greater than the available depth of focus, resulting in an image that is partially out of focus. Multiple images captured in sequence from top to bottom are combined into a composite in-focus image.

The images below were captured using a MT7100 metallurgical microscope at 100x magnification. The edge of a flooring sealant material was captured six times, at different focal depths and the microscope software was used to combine them into the final crisp, clear image.
