Ethics - Very Important for all researchers!
A very nice collection of information at The
Southwest Environmental Health Science Center
runs on ALL platforms that support JAVA. Has many, many advanced
features, and it's capabilities are easily extended with the large
number of available plugins.
Read the Calibrations_HOWTO
document (included in the Calibrations.zip). The Calibrations.zip
file has more information and modified versions of the
"Microscope_Scale" plugin to demonstrate how to work with the
Microscope_Scale plugin and have multiple calibration files easily
accessible. This includes calibration plugins specific to our Umass
Central Microscopy Facility equipment:
Note: Microscope calibrations change from time to time. The
Calibrations.zip file will have dated information that is for the
current microscope configuration. We maintain copies of the
calibration images, data, and ImageJ calibration plugins from earlier
calibrations. Please ask if you need these for working with older
