MBF Bioscience Launches Stereo Investigator Whole Slide Edition for Quantitative Analysis of Whole Slide Image Data

Williston, VT – June 29, 2018 – MBF Bioscience is pleased to announce the launch of the Whole Slide Edition of Stereo Investigator. This is a new version of our renown Stereo Investigator software, designed especially for conducting stereology on images from slide scanners.

Featuring a streamlined, user-friendly interface, this new product includes a variety of probes for quantifying number, length, volume, and surface area of cells, structures, and regions of biological tissue. The software works with all 2D microscope images, and is an especially attractive solution for researchers who work mostly, or exclusively, with slide scanners.

The main benefits of Stereo Investigator – Whole Slide Edition include:
· Accurate, unbiased quantitative analysis of images from slide scanners
· Designed workflows and user-interface specifically for analyzing whole slide images
· Compatible with all popular slide scanning file formats
· Enhanced user interface that is easy to use for 2D stereology probes
· Integrates with our Biolucida image management system
· Affordable
· Includes MBF technical and scientific support
· Free trial versions are available

“We’re very excited about the opportunity this gives to many of our customers who want to use stereology to perform quantitative analysis of their whole slide image data. Stereo Investigator – Whole Slide Edition provides a powerful, lower-cost version of Stereo Investigator with a user interface designed specifically for 2D image data,” says MBF Bioscience Director of Sales & Marketing Mark Barton.

For over a decade, Stereo Investigator has been considered the gold standard for carrying out stereological studies on biological tissue, and is cited in peer reviewed publications ten times more than any other stereology system. With the release of Stereo Investigator – Whole Slide Edition, MBF Bioscience continues its dedication to further assisting the research of our valued customers.
