Enhance your digital microscopy platform with Motic's professional image analysis tools

Posted by Motic America on

Motic Images Plus 3.1 Advanced Software is the most sophisticated imaging analysis software from Motic. It consists of two main programs: the capture interface which controls a Moticam camera and the captured image application program, and consists advanced features include image stitching and fluorescence image processing, which unlocking the potential of your microscope and enhancing your digital microscopy platform into the next level.

Motic Images Plus 3.1 Advanced Software

Motic Images Plus 3.1 Advanced Software includes all features and tools of the Motic Images Plus 3.0, with additional three different modules: Manual Segmentation, Motic Images Multi-focus and Motic Images Assembly.

Manual Segmentation The software allows segmentation of images manually with thresholds for red, green, blue and gray. It is also possible to perform single-point segmentation with up to eight different colour levels. Several filters such as Hi-Pass and Low-Pass as well as customization options are available.
Motic Images Multi-focus This feature allows the user to capture images at different focal depths. The software will scan each layer and assemble a new image with all maximum value pixels thereby creating a single image where all layers are in focus. The program even automatically adjusts and compensates for any image shift when using Stereo Microscopy.
Motic Images Assembly When looking at objects with high magnification, the field of view decreases. This feature will allow users to capture images at a high field of view as well as high magnification. Up to 100 images taken in one focal plane in a 10x10 format can be scanned by this software and assembled. All overlaps are recognized and individual images are automatically shifted into the right place.

Other functions included are:


  • Instantly capture still images
  • Obtain still images at programmed intervals that you set (time lapse)
  • Set live Image size to 1024 x 768, 800 x 600, 640 x 480, or 320 x 240 pixels
  • Image captures size of 1024 x 768, 800 x 600, 640 x 480, or 320 x 240 pixels
  • Show full screen real-time live images on your computer
  • Record images in an AVI movie format detailing development and /or movement of a specimen being watched


  • Compute entire area or portions of an image
  • Choose from line (linear) or area: Ellipse, circle, rectangle, irregular shape and polygon measuring tools
  • Several measurement parameters available including mm, um and inches
  • Uses an easy & automatic calibration process with enclosed calibration slide
  • Resave the image with the measurement superimposed on it


  • Send and receive images on-line using built-in menus
  • Choose from the following formats:  JPG, BMP, MIG and TIFF
  • Images easily saved, emailed or printed


  • Capture a batch of images at different focal depths then combine them into a single one-layer clear image
  • Combine using different methods such as by proportion, subtraction, or addition etc


  • Process the image with a variety of filters
  • Adjust brightness, contrast, hue, saturation, red, green, blue
  • Process effects of Invert, Relief, Sharp, Smooth, Mosaic, Grey, Scale


  • Draw beelines, circles, rectangles and irregular figures in the current image
  • Add icons to images
  • Annotate the images with text


  • Record audio narration to accompany MIG still-image files
  • Microscope World technical note:  MIG files are not common so it is likely this program will be the only one that can play them back
  • Add or modify measurements and sound on an image even after it is saved
  • Great for group projects where more than one narrator can be used
  • Exclusive SFC file format enables this feature
  • Software plays MP3 files so you can listen while you work


  • Automatic object or cell counting
  • Select an area in a captured image and dimension and size information for the cells is counted with just one click
  • Data can be exported to spreadsheet or database programs for further analysis


  • Drag-and-drop functionality
  • Generate reports quickly and easily
  • Use captured or manipulated images
  • No need for additional software
  • Print reports for further discussion


  • Advanced measuring functions, including perimeter, width, radius, circumference and angle calculation
  • Measures immediately simply by selecting a portion of an image
  • Magnifier (zoom) function increases the precision of the measurement start and end points
  • Data can be exported to spreadsheet or database programs for further analysis
