Great at analysis, not ideal for image acquisition.
Application Area:Image acquisition and analysis process
"It is a very powerful piece of software with comprehensive analysis functions. However, the image acquisition process on a microscope is slow. Sometimes it has communication problems between the software and the hardware."

"I've used several imaging software programs and instruments and Nikon has an excellent optics reputation. The software is easy to use and the customer service is phenomenal, the reps are always there for support and tutorials. The resolution is improved over other brightfield and fluorescence microscopy."

"The real-time measurement from the Elements doesn't work for me and the output is sometimes corrupted."
The Nikon NIS-Elements platform is an investment that addresses ever-changing protocols, new technology and system components. With NIS-Elements’ upgradability and ease in training and navigation, you create a resource that can be passed on through generations of your laboratory and research transitions.
Nikon also believes that having a single software platform for all imaging modalities is vital. NIS-Elements provides the same interface, control, workflow, and terminology whether it’s used for widefield, confocal, or super resolution imaging. With one platform to learn, users can easily switch between microscope systems when their applications require different imaging modalities. Imaging results from different Nikon systems can also be easily combined and analyzed to expand your research direction.
The NIS.ai module expands the NIS-Elements platform by building in tailor-made solutions for acquisition, visualization and analysis. Artificial Intelligence (AI) and deep learning methods are making seemingly impossible tasks now possible. Results only managed by challenging acquisition parameters or by painfully long or manual segmentation methods can now be automated thanks to AI.
