Important Oosight® Update Information

This message contains important information on your Oosight Basic or Oosight Meta imaging systems purchased prior to June 2015.

As of April 2015, Hamilton Thorne acquired the Oosight technology from Perkin Elmer and has assumed all responsibility for sales, service and customer support related to the Oosight systems. Oosight Comp Chart Corrected

According to our records your company purchased an Oosight system in the past. Oosight systems sold and supported by Perkin Elmer were installed with either the Basic or Meta software (Version 3). The chart on the right outlines the differences between Oosight Basic and Oosight Meta features.

Upon the acquisition of the Oosight technology, Hamilton Thorne updated the Basic and Meta software to Version 4. The Version 4 software is now fully compatible with 64 bit versions of Windows 7 and also includes a fundamental change in the licensing activation method from an online activation process to a HASP security key mediated system. This means that if you try to install the Version 3 Oosight software on a new computer, the online license activation process will not function. In order to transfer the Oosight software to a new computer, an upgrade to Hamilton Thorne Oosight software Version 4 must be purchased.

To prevent future compatibility issues, Hamilton Thorne is offering a limited time opportunity for customers with an existing Oosight Version 3 system to upgrade their system software to Version 4 at very special prices. In addition, we are also offering a great deal on upgrading from the Basic Version 3 software to the Meta Version 4 software. These offers are valid until March 31, 2016. After that time, prices will increase substantially.

710277 Upgrade: Oosight Basic to Meta v4 (+) Software HASP key $980.00
