Since 2007 the IPCU is equipped with a MIRAX MIDI slide scanner for the digitalization of whole histological slides. The provided viewer software was able to display the scanned image data but lacked decent image data export. For this reason an image export tool was implemented. The exporter software featured selection of relevant image areas, selection of brightfield and fluorescent microscopy data, resolution of exported image data (full, medium, small), color format (24-bit RGB, 8-bit color/grayscale) and image format (TIFF, PNG, JPG). The number of selected image tiles, the total pixel size and the approximate memory consumption of the exported image was displayed for the user. As an addition the tool allowed batch processing of a number of MIRAX data sets.
