Efficient navigation for all microscope systems from Carl Zeiss
Jena, 08 November 2011 – ZEN software was launched by Carl Zeiss for confocal laser scanning microscopes in 2007. The extremely logical structure of the ZEN user interface has received much praise and recognition from customers all over the world. Highly complex experiments can be designed and executed by users with minimal training and support.
Carl Zeiss is now expanding ZEN to drive all ZEISS light microscope systems. Users will experience one identical software interface for all their microscopy experiments. This offers synergies for research institutes using several microscopy technologies.
User interface of ZEN 2011
The software meets the requirements of various user groups with different software packages: ZEN pro, ZEN lite and ZEN desk module packages.
The heart of ZEN is Smart Setup. Users select the fluorophores used in their samples. Smart Setup features intelligent functions that suggest a few different configurations appropriate for the fluorophores in the sample. Users can then decide which parameters to optimize for their experiments, such as image acquisition or maximum resolution. Smart Setup automatically configures the system based on this input. Dr. Horst Wolff, Product Manager for imaging software at Carl Zeiss, remembers: “As a cell biologist, I always wanted a software solution that would control my microscope intelligently, do all settings automatically and therefore give me more time for my research.”
ZEN 2011 is optimized for recording several gigabytes of large image data sets. The software can store even high-speed dual camera time lapse series synchronously and reliably on the interlocked hard disk drives. Image stacks, time lapse series or tile images are saved together with the recording date of the system in the .czi format. Image processing modules generate 3D projections and export them as rendering or a film sequence.
The Carl Zeiss Group is a leading group of companies operating worldwide in the optical and opto-electronic industries. Carl Zeiss offers innovative solutions for the future-oriented markets of Medical and Research Solutions, Industrial Solutions, Eye Care and Lifestyle Products. During fiscal year 2009/10 the group of companies generated revenues of around EUR 2.98 billion. From fiscal year 2010/11 onward, eyeglass lens manufacturer Carl Zeiss Vision will be integrated as an autonomous business group (revenues of EUR 880 million in fiscal year 2009/10). The Carl Zeiss Group now has approximately 24,000 employees, including more than 10,000 in Germany. The Carl Zeiss business groups hold leading positions in their markets. Carl Zeiss AG, Oberkochen, is fully owned by the Carl Zeiss Stiftung (Carl Zeiss Foundation).
