Datacolor®, a global leader in color management solutions, today announced the launch in the U.S. of Datacolor CHROMACAL™, a first-of-its-kind system that enables scientists to establish and preserve the color integrity of their digital transmitted brightfield microscopy images. The system is available for sale through EMS (Electron Microscopy Sciences, Hatfield, PA), the exclusive distributor of Datacolor CHROMACAL in the United States.

CHROMACAL will be presented at the upcoming United States & Canadian Academy of Pathology (USCAP) annual meeting, March 2-5, in San Diego, CA (USA).

"With the assortment of microscope equipment and image capture/processing software available today, scientists are faced with an ever-expanding challenge of achieving color consistency of digital images," said Albert Busch, President and CEO for Datacolor. "To date, there has been no standardized solution to address this need. With CHROMACAL, we developed a reliable, easy-to-use, and integrated system for achieving digital color integrity in brightfield microscopy."

About CHROMACAL
Color in microscope images is critical for evaluation, communication, quantification, documentation, publication and decision making. Numerous factors impact color in brightfield microscope images, and this environment is further complicated by the variety of equipment, technology, manufacturers and their proprietary software.

CHROMACAL is the microscopy industry’s first color calibration solution to standardize color from image capture through communication. The CHROMACAL system utilizes a proprietary, precision-engineered color calibration microscope slide, together with advanced image and monitor calibration software. By providing a system solution for brightfield microscopy, Datacolor CHROMACAL delivers a foundation for visualizing and communicating specimen images with improved color consistency, reliability and comparability.

Datacolor has partnered with Electron Microscopy Sciences (EMS) for the exclusive distribution of CHROMACAL in the United States. EMS specializes in the manufacture, preparation, and distribution of the highest quality chemicals, supplies and equipment for all fields of microscopy.
