ZEN Intellesis

Automated Image Segmentation

ZEN Intellesis applies the power of machine learning to the task of segmenting multi-dimensional images, including 3D datasets. Images that had to be processed manually can now be analyzed automatically, by training ZEN Intellesis to segment them for you.

ZEN Connect

Images and Data in Context

With ZEN Connect, you can visualize different microscopy images and data from the same sample - in context and in one place. Discover the correlations between images at different scales. Benefit from integrated reporting across the connected datasets.

ZEN Data Storage

Central Data Management

ZEN Data Storage enables centralized management of microscope presets, workflows, data and reports - from different systems and locations. Separate microscopy imaging from post-acquisition processing to allow everyone in the lab to work more efficiently.

GxP Module

Secure Microscopy Processes

Recent scandals in automotive or the oil and steel industries have highlighted the consequences of wrong or even falsified data. The GxP module makes all your analyses traceable and therefore compliant with regulation and certification requirements.

NEO pixel

Bridging Microscopy and Metrology

Workpieces are getting smaller, manufacturing tools are able to produce impressively small features with very ambitious tolerances. NEO pixel brings metrology functionalities to microscopy – giving you higher quality and better productivity.
