Carnoy 1.0: scientific imaging for Mac OS X and Windows
LEUVEN, Belgium – September 10, 2001 – The Laboratory of Plant Systematics
(K.U.Leuven) today announced the availability of Carnoy. Carnoy is an
easy-to-use image analysis program. It is designed to carry out
measurements on digital images and especially on micrographs obtained from
light or electron microscopes.
Carnoy features a unique one-click calibration option: click on the scale
bar, enter its length and you are ready to carry out real-world
measurements on your micrographs.

database or spreadsheet, for further analysis.
The program’s clean and easy-to-use interface enables you to be productive
Carnoy can be used in the following fields: taxonomy, morphology, ecology,
physiology, molecular cell biology, agricultural sciences, paleontology,
archaeology, among others.
