What are the limitations of the trial version?

The one week trial of Comet Assay IV is download-only and as such cannot be supplied with a camera. If you have a video camera from a manufacturer such as QImaging, Basler, AVT or Leica, please contact us as it may be possible to connect your camera to allow live video imaging with the demonstration software.

Even without a compatible camera, the trial offers plenty of possibilities. You can download a video that has been captured from the microscope of an existing Comet Assay IV user. This video can be loaded into Comet Assay IV to demonstrate the benefits of real-time scoring delivered by the full version of the program. You can also use your own image files with the program.

Quotes

We started using Comet Assay IV and it works well...

Researcher, Nuclear Agency, France

We're now using the software and it works great. It has cut our time for comets by at least half.

Post Doctoral Fellow, National Institute of Health, USA

Comet Assay IV software is in use. Currently our comet analysis is based on tail moment measurement and I must say that everything works properly.

Researcher, Cancer Research Institute, Slovakia

I love the software. Keep up the good work over there.

Study Director, Contract Research Organisation, USA

...we are "happy users" of the software

Senior Researcher, Risk Assessment Institute, Germany

It's an amazing program! Really useful!

Research Scientist, University, Brazil

Total change in our lab since you came (with Comet Assay IV of course...)! thanks... :-)

Postgraduate Researcher, University, France

Perfect and very clear installation and training.
