Color Calibration Slide for Brightfield Microscopy

chromacal-icons-comgray-300pxThe CHROMACAL Color Calibration Slide is an innovative, precision-engineered tool that is used to determine the unique color fingerprint of your imaging session. The use of the CHROMACAL calibration slide is practically effortless – simply acquire your specimen images and an image of the calibration slide. The proprietary CHROMACAL software uses the calibration slide image to automatically establish and apply a color profile to your specimen images. It’s that easy.

The CHROMACAL Color Calibration Slide is designed exclusively for use with the CHROMACAL Color Calibration System for Optical Microscopy. Under normal use, the CHROMACAL slide is warranted for one (1) year (see warranty detail terms and conditions).

Each CHROMACAL slide is uniquely identified, corresponding to a specific color measurement file of the proprietary CHROMACAL chip at the center of the slide. The measurement file and calibration slide image are utilized by the CHROMACAL Color Calibration System when calibrating brightfield images.

The CHROMACAL chip includes the following features (See Image Library Above):

  • One larger color matrix consisting of 20 color circles in a 4 x 5 configuration. This matrix is generally intended for magnifications up to 40X.
  • One smaller color matrix consisting of 20 color circles in a 4 x 5 configuration. This matrix is generally intended for magnifications above 40X up to 100X.
  • Numerous location lines pointing to a circle surrounding both color matrices. These are meant to assist in locating the color matrices.
  • In the upper left-hand corner of the chip there is a 4 x 4 micrometer grid consisting of 250um divisions. Within the lower right-hand division is a 10 x10 sub-grid with 25um divisions. This micrometer grid is unrelated to the color calibration system but is provided as an additional value-add.

The CHROMACAL slide is not suitable for use with oil immersion objectives. The CHROMACAL slide should be handled with care. For complete care instructions, click here.
