Apr 23, 2014

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."
