Image Acquisition and Analysis Software Improves Lab EfficiencyBuehler’s new OmniMet 9.5 image acquisition and quantitative analysis software improves lab efficiency and increases operator appeal compared to previous generations of the product. Specific improvements include browsing the database using a typical PC-style folder interface, the ability to store multimedia files (such as instruction files, written procedures and measurement reports), a preview pane to view thumbnail images of files within a folder, the ability to flip and rotate images, overlay grids, improved bitplane manipulation functions, database administration tools to assign user rights and access levels and an audit trail function to track file access and modification information.

The OmniMet system offers seamless point-and-click integration of microscopes, cameras and image analysis software to capture, analyze and store images and measurement results. Measurements from simple manual point-and-click options to sophisticated automated analysis algorithms are all possible. OmniMet also includes optional modules for industrial microstructural analysis—all fully compliant with the relevant ASTM and ISO methods—to enable automated grain size measurement, phase area percentage, weld characteristics and other analytical functions considered vital in metallography, petrography and electronics testing (view the complete module list in the OmniMet product literature). All optional modules have been updated making use of the new analytical capabilities offered in OmniMet 9.5.
