RootSnap!, free image analysis software from CID, allows users to measure root growth and turnover dynamics, disease, and behavior over time by analyzing scanned images collected with the CI-600. Roots are easily mapped and quantified using a multi-touch feature and our proprietary "Snap to Root" function. RootSnap! is intuitive and efficient, using universal commands for images and file manipulation. Files are stored in common open file formats (XML) and the software supports exporting data to apps like Excel for further statistical analysis.
CI-690 Root Image Analysis System Features
For years, analysing root images has been a tedious job. Scientists have been searching for a faster more reliable method for analysing root images. In response, CID Bio-Science is proud to announce the release of RootSnap!, a user assisted root image analysis package. The CI-690 RootSnap! system removes hours of tedious tracing by offering a revolutionary user interface that employs a multi-touch feature which allows users to more quickly and easily trace roots using their fingers. The software has tracing enhancements like the “Snap-to-Root” function which snaps root tracing points to the centre of the root automatically. Additionally, the RootSnap! software has integrated image enhancement features, which allow users to optimise scanned images for more accurate processing. This eliminates the need to switch to alternate image enhancement programs. Monitor root growth, disease, dynamics and behaviour over time with RootSnap! Simplify mapping roots using the multi-touch feature and our proprietary “Snap to Root” function. The superior RootSnap! Interface is intuitive and efficient. It uses familiar commands to manipulate images and files.
