  • Patent number: 9599804
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method and a system for central computer controlled execution of at least one test run in a scanning microscope, particularly a confocal microscope, wherein at least one first software module of an application software is tested. The invention achieves the aim by a network made of individual scanning microscope clients and a central server. The clients can be contacted via a network interface and are administered in a central directory in the server. The application software for the individual components of a scanning microscope is made of individual software modules, each associated with a potential test. In order to be able to perform the various tests, the scanning microscope clients have been equipped on the hardware side with additional sensors and components that allow various operating parameters to be determined.

  • Publication number: 20160300284
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for providing a merchant product includes receiving a first transmission from a first device by a server. The first transmission includes information relating to authentication data for authenticating a second device for which to provide the merchant product. The authentication data is stored in a database of the server. The server receives a second transmission from the second device that includes data for authenticating the second device. The information in the second transmission is compared to the authentication data stored in the database of the server to determine whether or not the second device is authenticated, and if the second device is authenticated, the server customizes the merchant product based upon the authentication data stored in the database of the server. The server transmits the customized merchant product to the second device.
