What are the Plug-ins for

The plug-ins serve for the evaluation of immunogold labelling on series of raw images obtained from the electron microscope (EM). The plug-ins were written for commercially available "Ellipse" program. They allow one to detect gold particles in an EM image and then either to delineate structures labelled with them, or to evaluate mutual localization of different types of gold particles, which label, for example, different antigens.

The plug-ins together with “Ellipse” program form a complete set of tools for processing and evaluation of immunogold labeling results.
