Microscope navigation becomes a matter of Zen

New microscope layout permits user control and ease of navigation. Applying ergonomic design to complex systems ...

"Carl Zeiss MicroImaging says it is setting new standards in application-friendly software for laser scanning microscopy. The Zen user interface is clearly structured and flexible, allowing it to be individually tailored to each experiment and user. At the same time, the Professional-Basic concept of Zen reduces the complexity of the interface without, however, decreasing the range of functions - the users themselves decide at what point they require full functionality.

This allows them to focus their full attention on what really counts - their research work.

... The user interface of Zen is organised into three zones, following the typical workflow of the experiments performed: the tools for image acquisition and microscope control on the left, the worktable for image viewing in the center and file management on the right.

The layout of the left toolbar can be adapted to the personal requirements of the user.

Its clear structure allows reliable, easy operation of the microscope system.

If required, all tools can be decoupled and freely positioned on the screen.

The central area of Zen is optimised for the display and interaction with the acquired image data."    (Continued via Carl Zeiss MicroImaging)    [Ergonomics Resources]
