Image Analysis for Academia

More and more companies are commissioning universities for research in order to close their knowledge gap between practice and theory. Universities, in turn, need to strike a balance between performing independent basic research and providing these paid services. This is particularly important for young scientists and engineers who acquire extensive material knowledge during their training.

Clemex Image Analysis Software is ideal for intricate and atypical applications in research or commercial laboratories. This versatile tool can be used to analyze a wide variety of materials and is ideal for labs where a certain analysis is unlikely to be seen again. For schools a lite version helps to generate routine analyses such as grain size measurement, particle measurement, phase area percentage, porosity and nodularity.


Our image analysis software is exceptionally flexible, allowing for any number of distinct routines to be run on the same system. These routines come packaged as a library of existing applications or can be developed by our applications specialists. Especially for the academic sector a wide variety of potable applications can be measured:
