Image Visualization and Analysis Software

Imaris for Neuroscientists
MultiPark has acquired a license for Imaris for Neuroscientists version 9.3 and a dedicated workstation for it. This software is especially suited for 3D/4D visualization of images that have been acquired from a confocal microscope, for example. The Neuroscience package of Imaris, in particular, allows for neuron tracing but can work with other cells types or structures that branch or are filamentous in nature. In addition, users may use this software package to detect and measure spots and surfaces and perform colocalization anaylsis. This version of Imaris has been improved over previous versions to better handle large datasets.

To learn more about the Imaris for Neuroscientists package, please visit the official Bitplane page: Imaris for neuroscientists webpage
