Abstract. This paper introduces the project SQOPE: Software in Quantitative OPtical and Electron microscopy, which aims to establish a collaborative group of researchers in the development of a computer framework to process and analyze microscopic images. The main requirements are the ability to deal with images from different microscopes, customization facilities and two execution modes: sequential and parallel. The parallel version will be available through the Internet, by means of a service portal. This tool will permit computer-aided identification of pathologies in medical images, even so we intend to extend it to other sectors of technical-scientific research. The commercial potential of this software attracted the company Associated Scientists to intervene in the project.
