BIOQUANT LIFE SCIENCE Software
The BIOQUANT LIFE SCIENCE software enables cutting edge bioscience research in animal models and human biopsy.
It supports high-throughput immunofluorescence and immunohistochemistry, stereology, densitometry, and 3D modeling.
Primary applications include developmental neuroscience, traumatic brain/spinal cord injury, glaucoma, eye-movement disorders, cardiovascular disease and muscle disorders.

Explore Sample Protocols
BIOQUANT LIFE SCIENCE comes with templates for many bioscience research protocols. It is also easily customized for unique protocols. If your laboratory has a Technical Services Plan, we will even customize the template for you. Click on the image below to browse through sample protocols.
About Imaging Your Slides
BIOQUANT LIFE SCIENCE collects data on images of tissue slides, welled plates, or anything else that can to captured with the camera or scanned into an image.
There are several methods used to generate the image of your slides. Explore the options below.
With this traditional technique, you can place a sample on the microscope and immediately begin collecting data. The microscope, tracking stage, digital camera, BIOQUANT software are all integrated into a single workstation.
If you're starting a new lab and will be able to hand-pick your instruments, this is an ideal solution. BIOQUANT can provide the entire integrated system from microscope to stage to camera to PC and software. We can also integrate with your lab's existing microscope.
With Live Imaging and a GPS-like tracking stage, tight integration of the microscope with the software lets the scientists change the objective lens or sample position freely to select the best magnification and position to collect any required data. BIOQUANT LIFE SCIENCE automatically adjusts the calibration and maps the recorded data.
This technique allows samples to be analyzed in offices and labs away from the microscope facility and by many people simultaneously. To do this, samples (usually tissue sections or well plates) are scanned at sub-micron resolutions and stored as calibrated digital image scans on the network.
This means that the microscope is only occupied for as long as it takes to collect the scans of the samples. In contrast, when using live imaging for analysis, the microscope and BIOQUANT are occupied for as long as it takes to collect the data.
There are many ways to image scans at different price levels and levels of functionality.
To collect data, a scientist uses a computer with the BIOQUANT LIFE SCIENCE software to retrieve and analyze the scans. This workstation is often located in an office or lab away from the microscopy facility. With a scan, BIOQUANT lets you measure at any magnification: even creating "virtual objectives" like 0.25x so you can see even the largest sections in one field of view.
BIOQUANT LIFE SCIENCE Add-ons
The following are optional add-ons to the BIOQUANT LIFE SCIENCE software.
The BIOQUANT Imaging Extensions Add-on to BIOQUANT LIFE SCIENCE enables the Imaging Toolkit, the ability to open images up to 4 GB, microCT analysis, 2-D Xray analysis, stereolog estimates analysis, and densitometry analysis.
The Topographer Add-on to BIOQUANT LIFE SCIENCE provides solutions for 2-D mapping and 3-D modeling. 2-D maps are exported as SVG. 3-D models are exported as PLY or can be recorded into AVI movies. Includes topography editing tools and display tools.
BIOQUANT LIFE SCIENCE Learning & Support
BIOQUANT LIFE SCIENCE has comprehensive, interactive PDF, Help, and eBook documentation. In addition, Technical Service Plans can be purchased for priority technical support including web trainings, priority technical support, template design, and free upgrades.
BIOQUANT LIFE SCIENCE is documented in the interactive PDF, eBook, and multi-media video formats. Custom guides within the software also walk the end user through their protocols.
