Carl Zeiss Microscopy Highlights ZEN Browser Image Database

Carl Zeiss Microscopy, a leading provider of microscopy products for life sciences and materials research, highlights the benefits of its new server-based image databasing software, ZEN browser.

The ZEN browser technology aids users in storage, filing and organization, and backup of large digital data sets, making the use of these data sets reliable and easy. This technology, invaluable to users in fields such as pathology research, provides storage and organization, both in the lab and on the go, for large virtual slide databases.

The intuitive web interface allows users to organize virtual microscopy data online and across platforms. The software can be accessed through any internet browser, and is password protected for security purposes.  An additional user management function restricts access to authorized individuals only, while allowing others to view images without administrative rights. All images are filed together with relevant metadata and customizable supporting documents.

Access and permissions can be individually assigned, allowing users to customize how data is shared and keep information organized. ZEN browser makes data and virtual microscopy images accessible to a wider audience, with a project-based, web-centric database that allows integrated web viewing, making online project publishing easier. In addition to the web interface, a free ZEN browser app is also available for iPad. The ZEN browser app lets users access their server software and build up a virtual slides database from wherever work takes them. With the ZEN browser app, the organizing and sharing power of the software is available from any location.
