I received a flier today from BIOSOFT advertizing Quantiscan.
I quote " Turn your IBM PC/PS@ or compatible and desktop scanner into:
AN AFFORDABLE DENSITOMETER.
Quantiscan accepts 4-bit (16 grayscale) and 8-bit (256 grayscale)
Intel format TIFF files from desktop scanners such as HP ScanJet
or video camera which are linked to your PC.
Two dimensional integration can be performed.....Smoothing, editing
and background subtraction can be performed on densitometry plots
....etc etc. Macintosh version available
Price US$ 499 FREE DEMO DISK.
P.O. Box 10938
Ferguson, MO. 63135
Phone (314) 524-8029
Fax: (314) 524-8129
Looks like it might make a nice combo with a hand scanner.
Disclaimer: I'm only on their flier mailing list not their payroll.
ps. I purchased a copy of their SKYWATCH program last year
If Quantiscan is half as good it'll be worth the price.
