The scanning and digitization of microscopy samples with IKOSA ISTIX.

IKOSA ISTIX is a versatile whole slide viewing program that can be used in a wide range of research fields. This advanced whole slide imaging program finds use within multiple disciplines like:
  • digital histology 
  • digital pathology 
  • plant and crop science
  • microbiology and mycology.  

​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.

* If you require a camera equipment for your microscope, get in touch at ikosa@kmlvision.com we are happy to provide you with a recommended model.
