Software based Image Analysis and Enhancement

Our focus are the domains of

  • Microscopy, in particular Digital Pathology and Fluorescence Microscopy
  • and Endoscopy, especially panorama creation and detection of objects and pathologies (e.g. polyps)

We have know-how in image processing and analysis

  • using “classical” algorithms that are often fast and only require limited sample data
  • and using Deep Learning which frequently yields superior results, but demands a lot of training data

We develop Systems and Software

  • for Windows, Linux, Mac or iPhone
  • as standalone applications or integrable libraries
