ICY is some great free software that goes extends beyond image J and provides some more advanced tools and a nicer GUI.
There are also a heap of cool plugins available including a new one called Active cell, which makes it quick and easy to outline a cell in either 2D or 3D ! There is also a nice review of this plugin here.
I have been using FrogDance’s GelEval software for awhile now, and I have to say it is super easy to use and make the quantification of westerns and gels in general very easy.
It is trial software, you get 20 free goes at the program before you have to shell out the very reasonable $35 for it (I’m assuming that it is in $USD, despite it being a uk site)
I would normally give a quick run thru on how to actually use the software at this stage, but it really is quite simple and straight forward that I don’t think its really necessary…. unlike ImageJ which does require quite a lot of work to get its (free) gel quantification working.
I hope some of you find it as useful as I have !
