Imaris (Bitplane Scientific Software) consists of an expandable suite of programs to display and quantify morphometric data from microscopic images. The Imaging Center Suite currently consists of the following 3 modules:

MeasurementPro enables researchers to extract critical statistical parameters from microscopic images for quantification.

Imaris MeasurementPro adds shape, size, and intensity based measurement capabilities to the standard volume rendering, surface rendering and object detection features of Imaris. Researchers can interactively classify, group, and filter segmented objects based on any of the calculated statistics.

FilamentTracer allows automatic detection of neurons (dendritic trees, axons and spines), microtubules, and other filament-like structures in 2D, 3D and 4D to help researchers understand alterations caused by developmental and environmental changes. FilamentTracer utilizes multiple automatic, semi-automatic, and manual segmentation methods that can be used in any combination, to successfully segment, then visualize and quantify the detected structures.

AutoDeblur is the life science industry's leading image deconvolution software. It offers the most complete suite of 2D and 3D algorithms available, including the industry's only "Blind Deconvolution" algorithm. AutoDeblur removes out of focus light, even from confocal images, and delivers superior precision and accuracy while preserving data integrity. It is effective with all current optical microscopes including wide-field fluorescence, confocal, transmitted light brightfield, multiple-photon and DIC. AutoDeblur helps provide the best possible images for use with MeasurementPro and FilamentTracer.
