The OBC has a FULL license to Imaris 3/4D Image Visualization and Analysis Software on a high end workstation, directly linked to the OBC server for convenient data access for analysis.

Imaris has a free version, Imaris Viewer, that is a free 3D/4D microscopy image viewer for viewing raw images as well as those analysed within Imaris.

  • Browse files as thumbnails and open 3D images
  • Visualize datasets previously analyzed in Imaris
  • Interact with 3D images using intuitive mouse controls
  • Inspect your images with clipping planes and 2D slicers
  • Easily generate high-resolution snapshots
  • Adjust and save brightness and contrast

Imaris Full comes with Visualization of complex 3/4D microscopy datasets with automated Spots and Surfaces detection and visualisation (100s of GBs), smart detection of complex objects, tracing of neurons, blood vessels (no lumen) or other filamentous structures, tracking including cell division detection, batch analysis and a wide range of customized analysis powered by MatLab or Python.
