Clemex Vision Lite

The perfect partner for single applications

Simplified image analysis

Building an imaging routine in Clemex Vision Lite is done without any programming. Simply save a sequence of instructions chosen from our user-friendly toolbox and re-use anytime on similar samples.

Choose from a library of existing applications

Optional Application Modules are specifically designed for less demanding analyses or single applications. These pre-built imaging routines can be fine-tuned to meet your standards.

Build customized reports

Creating a report in MS Excel is entirely automated with the optional Report Generator module. You can include images, raw data, statistics and graphs in professional looking reports based on your criteria.

Features Overview

Enhanced Image Capture

Automatic Shading Corrector

Our software's unique fully automated shading correction feature ensures even illumination for images captured using the system’s camera. The image on the left was captured without a shading corrector. A pseudo-color LUT was applied to show the differences in gray levels.

Extended Depth of Field

The Multi-Layer Grab feature allows you to work on a sharp composite image of an uneven surface, made up of several image slices captured at various depths. This function can adapt to either manual or motorized focus systems.

Stitching of Multiple Fields

With the Mosaic feature, Clemex software automatically stitches multiple fields to form a large image of unlimited resolution (memory dependent). This option can be used with a manual or motorized stage.

Calibration Settings

Calibrate your system manually or automatically. Associate different calibration settings for each objective lens or camera. Store an unlimited number of settings to be used later at the touch of a button.

Auto Exposure

Once you have set the initial target intensity, you can duplicate lighting conditions any time with a simple click of the Auto Exposure button. Adjusting camera shutter speed manually is not necessary.

Scanner

Scan photos directly into the software, calibrate and perform your analysis.

Accurate Object Detection

Clemex Vision Lite Toolbox

The abridged version of Clemex Vision contains enough instructions to perform simple, repetitive analyses. Advanced instructions become available for editing when using Application Modules.

Object Tracking in Data Browser

The Data Browser, a built-in spreadsheet, remembers the positions of all analyzed objects, even in multiple-field environments. You can sort results, validate detected objects, and delete artifacts.

Contrast Threshold

Transparency, low contrast and more or less perceptible outlines make some objects hard to distinguish. Contrast Thresholding is ideal for faint objects on a filter, thin-walled cells and variable thickness crystals.

Color Detection

Sometimes your images may need the extra flexibility of a Color Threshold to distinguish phases or objects with a particular hue. The pink phase in the particles in this image can only be detected using Color Threshold.

Characterize & Measure

Pre-built Imaging Routines

For frequently used analyses Clemex offers pre-built Routines that can be bought separately. They are pre-programmed and can be modified to suit your own guidelines.

Measure Stitched Images

Perform automated or direct measurements on stitched images made up of several or many fields of view. Particularly useful when measuring objects which extend beyond the field of view of your chosen magnification.

Characterize Objects

After detecting the objects of interest in your image you can use a limited number of standard measurements. Produce and export raw and statistical data for particles, fibers, spheres or irregular objects.

Percentiles for Particle Size

These statistics are compiled automatically and are available for all object measures. Particulartly useful when measuring the size and shape of particles – be it length, sphericity, aspect ratio, roundness, roughness, spherical volume or compactness.

Direct Measures

Especially useful in applications such as Welding or Thread analysis, manual measurements are immediately updated in the Data Browser (built-in spreadsheet). Typical measurements include Length, Angle, Radius and Perimeter.

Automation Features

Camera Control

Cameras can be controlled directly within an imaging script. Automating this step means calibration and intensity can be changed during analysis without any manual adjustments.

Professional-Looking Reports

Reports are generated automatically after each analysis and can be customized to suit your needs. You can add a company logo, images taken during analysis, graphs and charts, statistics and results.

Auto Focus

No need to focus manually, automated focusing offers precision and speed. Quality results depend on image clarity and with Clemex that is what you get. With the Auto Focus you will always end up with a perfectly detailed image to rely on for your measurements.

NIST-Traceable Auto Calibration

Using our NIST traceable micrometer, Clemex software automatically calibrates each lens, eliminating operator subjectivity. The system returns accurate, reproducible and traceable results.

Automated Image Stitching

Clemex software can automatically stitch multiple fields to form one large image. Furthermore, this function can be combined with the multi-layer grab to reconstruct a completely focused image. Perfect for uneven oversized samples.

User Experience Features

Non-Destructive Annotations

Annotations, be they logos, text, arrows, or any other shape, are not burned into the underlying image, so they can be turned on to be added in a standard report, or turned off to view the pristine image.

Virtual Joystick

The Motorized stage can be controlled through the software with a virtual joystick that allows you to move the stage in all directions, focus manually, or trigger auto-focus events.

Imaging Routines

Build routines using an intuitive toolbox, helping you through every step to produce the results you need.

Centering Tool

The Centering Tool allows you to keep desired features in the center of the image field when switching magnification.

Circular Stage Pattern

This feature helps you to easily create rounded stage patterns when analyzing membrane filters or wafers. You control variables such as size, shape, and the number of fields while the software does the rest.

Smart Scale Line

Scale lines instantly display the correct reference length based on the chosen magnification. Color, size, thickness, and intervals are also easy to change by double-clicking on the line.

Magnifying Glass Tool

The tip of the cursor can act as a magnifying glass to enhance portions of the image and help in identifying particles or anomalies.

Outline of Sample Holder

A virtual stage can be made to appear in the Stage Window, allowing you to position stage patterns with precision.
