Researchers at our department are looking for an image analysis system       
suitable for counting of bacteria from light microscope. Are there any       
dedicated systems for this task which would not cost a fortune? So far       
we have tested a general purpose analysis program named "Global Lab          
Image" and a videocard from a company named Data Translations, but the       
software seems not to be very suitable for bacterial counting (it            
should be e.g. able to handle clumped bacteria etc. more or less             
automatically, and hopefully without need of C-language programming!).       
Any help and experiences conserning different systems would be most wellcome!
