Expertomica Cell Marker

The software can read the series of images visualize them and allow the user to define the borders of cells


This work was supported and co-financed by the South Bohemian Research Center of Aquaculture and Biodiversity of Hydrocenoses (CZ.1.05/2.1.00/01.0024).

Description

The software was originally developed for manual labeling of cells in series of microscopy images for cell behavior analysis. The software can read the series of images visualize them and allow the user to define the borders of cells. The information about labeled cells is exported into txt file and it can be used for next processing. The software allow the user to do the standard labeling operations (object ID, object replication into next frame, scale definition, etc.). Several advanced functions were implemented in the software, for example: automatic adaptation of the shape of labeled cells in next frames, possibility to show different versions of the same image (processed images), export images with labeled cells, contrast enhancement for precise labeling. The software can be used for semi-automatic labeling of any kind of objects (including sub-objects) in the image series.

Input Data

The software operates with series of images in defined input directory.

Output

Information about labeled objects: borders, size, color. Images with labeled objects.
