chromacal-icons-300pxConsistent, presentation-quality color images without subjective adjustments…FAST!

The Datacolor CHROMACAL Color Calibration System for Optical Microscopy calibrates images to a consistent color standard, and helps preserve the rigor of your research data. The result is images that are more reliably compared and analyzed. The system uses a proprietary calibration slide and works with your existing microscope and imaging system.

The CHROMACAL Color Calibration System is easy to use and fits into your existing imaging workflow. First, acquire your specimen images and an image of the CHROMACAL Color Calibration Slide. Then, using the software, calibrate your specimen images. Your original files are preserved and a complete audit trail is saved in the metadata of the calibrated images. You get reliable, reproducible, comparable images in seconds without image editing software.
