News

12/04/2014 Since the start of HistoViewer, users have created more than 100,000 entries. Keep going!
14/03/2014 The homepage now provides some insight into what your colleagues are doing. Also, several software updates have been installed. All at one time, we fixed some minor bugs in HistoViewer.
05/12/2013 New function: positions shared via email can now directly be copied into "My Specimens" - have fun!
27/09/2013 We added some really nice odontology specimens. The images can be found in the specimen box "Aarhus University - Odontology ".
21/04/2013 HistoViewer has been updated. Due to a bug in Safari and Google Chrome on Mac OS X, some users experienced a weired behavior of some windows when changing zoom level via multi-touch gestures. The new version should catch these events. However, it is strongly recommended to adjust the magnification in the menu rather than using browser zoom, as the latter will result in rather blurred images.
12/03/2013 A short user manual in Danish can be found here.
10/03/2013 New lung specimen as 60x oil scan is now available as specimen no. 93 in Histology II.

What is it?

HistoViewer is a 'computer microscope'. We develop it as an accompanying tool for our microscopy courses.

Where can I find documentation?

A user manual can be downloaded here.

Features

- Quickly 'fly' over the specimen
- High-resolution images using oil immersion
- Open multiple interactive windows at a time
- Create your personal annotations
- Exchange and discuss annotations with other users

Do I have to register?

The short answer is no. However, registering will give you access to your personal database where you can store your annotations and labels and have access to the features you discovered at a later time point - from any computer.

Which browser do I need?

Up-to-date versions of all major browsers (e.g. Firefox, Google Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer >=9) will work fine. In the recent months, some of these browsers achieved great speed improvements, so it can pay off to test different ones. Older versions of Internet Explorer (from 8 downwards) are not supported.
