About software:

ImageJ (NIH, freeware, several versions) scientific image processing. Many plugins and macro's.

Huygens deconvolution (SVI), for removing out of focus blurring, noise in confocal and Nipkow disk images (only on computer no1). Also colocalisation analysis.

◘ Imaris 7.0 (Bitplane) 3D reconstruction. With this program you can easily load, visualize and analyze data from a few megabytes to multiple gigabytes in size from almost all microscope image formats. 3D reconstructions, particle tracking, filament tracer and more. (only on computer no2, the lite version on no1)

◘ Photoshop (Adobe). Photo editor

◘ ZEN Zeiss output evaluation

◘ LCS lite (Leica)  For easy evaluation of Leica images.

◘ HistoQuest (Tissuegnostics)  to identify and analyze individual cells in their native tissue environment. For histological data acquired with the TissueFaxs microscope or a Hammamatsu system.

◘ TissueQuest (Tissuegnostics)  As HistoQuest, for fluorescent labelled samples.
