The Laboratory of Image Analysis (Image Analysis) uses modern techniques of optical imaging and advanced technology equipment (tablets, video, frame grabber and digital still cameras). It includes an analysis and processing system for digital microscopic images, consisting of analog and digital cameras adapted to microscopes and stereoscopes, which are connected to respective workstations. The system is supported by detection applications, counting and morphology objects.
For further editing of photos and video, digital image analysis software is used (Adobe Photoshop, Correl Draw, GraphicConverter and NIH Image). Image Analysis is mostly used for age studies (otoliths , statoliths) and for fish and cephalopods reproduction analyses. Apart from the two -system software (Image Analysis Pro Plus and TNCP), macros have been constructed and used for age and reproduction studies.
