Reasons to use IKOSA ISTIX
Try out IKOSA ISTIX’s advanced whole-slide viewing features and accelerate your research. IKOSA ISTIX is a standalone software based on Fraunhofer IIS’ technology iSTIX® that converts camera-equipped* microscopes into manual whole-slide scanners. Thanks to the smooth scanning process at work, IKOSA ISTIX stitches individual fields of a view in order to create a single high quality digital image. The acquired whole-slide images have a resolution far more superior to using low magnification objectives.
The user-friendly connection to your IKOSA account enables you to share your virtual slides, annotate and label objects of interests, and utilize multiple microscopy image analysis applications based on artificial intelligence to your digital images.
Make the visual inspection tasks faster, easier and more accurate also for the ones who cannot afford very expensive equipment.
