Welcome to Solutions

Here you’ll find solutions to imaging and quantitation issues in the world of microscopes, micro-array devices, macro-scopes, lasers, illumination sources, fluorescent and brightfield imaging. We provide the following:

  • Computer identification of objects and materials in images (machine vision)
  • Cost-effective microscope/image array systems and components (optics engineer)
  • Images from novel sample mounts that do not conform to standard scopes (PDMS)
  • Color calibration standards (quality control, quality assurance)
  • Methods for quantization in post processing (image analyst. software design)
  • Instruction in digital imaging and microscopy (Microscopy Instruction)
  • Measurement of clinical samples (Clinical Investigation)
  • Instruction in Image Ethics (Image Integrity)

Particle counting, areas, lengths, widths, etc. for emboli and other biological and non-biological particles: Work with cardiology companies led to FDA approvals.

Covers and book by Jerry Sedgewick

Jerry Sedgewick provides instruction in digital imaging, image ethics and microscope usage: taught at Woods Hole and gave talks at national meetings for biologists in research (two publications shown: co-author Science article and cover art).
