Significant MountainsSPIP® benefits

Existing SPIP users will benefit from the following new features not found in SPIP:

  • Scientific software with a document layout: Organize the different steps of your image processing on one or several pages and publish them directly in different formats (PDF, Word etc.).
  • Total traceability: See all the analysis steps already applied to your data and instantly revert back to any step in the process. If you edit any step, all dependent steps are automatically updated.
  • Save your work and pick up where you left off last time.
  • Automate repetitive work and speed up your analysis process with powerful tools.
  • Correlative Analysis: Go beyond the limitations of one single instrument technology and combine data from 3D optical profilers, AFM, SEM, fluorescence, Raman, IR or other microscopes.
  • Multi-channel file management & processing: switch easily from one channel to another during each and every stage of image analysis

All users can take advantage of the unique functions already valued by our SPIP customers:

  • Force spectroscopy: visualize, process and study force curves and force volume images.
  • Particle analysis: easily detect and quantify features of any shape and size on virtually any surface.
  • Lateral Calibration: Get the most accurate measurement of repeated structures and assess your instrument for linearity distortions
  • Correlation Averaging: The best tool for suppressing random noise and enhance repeated structures
  • Compatibility with all scanning probe microscopes: SPM, AFM, STM, SNOM, etc. and also with ANY other microscope or surface measuring instrument like scanning electron microscope, confocal microscope, 3D optical profiler, ...
  • etc.
