For more than two decades, the SRC has provided the user-friendly, powerful and cost-effective Stereologer system to the global community of bioscience researchers.
The state-of-the-art Stereologer integrates brightfield and fluorescence microscopy with computer-controlled stage movement, high-resolution digital imaging, and 2-D/3-D image capture for image analysis/processing.
Turnkey Stereologer Systems provide complete solutions at the most affordable cost in the industry.
Supported by NIH grants for more than two decades, Stereologer is consistently rated by the user community as top choice for:
- User friendly software
- Innovative system design
- Automatic and transparent workflow
- High-throughput data collection (typically one case in one hour or less)
- Most affordable to purchase, maintain and support
- Compatibility with microscopes, motorized XYZ stages and digital cameras
- Support from recognized experts in the field
- Highly reliable, low-cost year over year performance
