Imaris is designed for investigation of biological samples and there cellular structures.

Features include the following :

3/4D visulisation package reads in native file formats of most of the confocal microscope. Can also take in ome-tiff and tiff files e.g. processed images from ImageJ
Various display options are available such as clipping planes, ortho-slicers (to get right-angled views centered on a single point), surfaces which create an actual object with quantifiable properties based upon the fluorescence signal e.g quantifying nuclei volume based on DAPI/ Hoescht staining
Time course data sets can be analysed either in x-y or x-y-z with the ability to track features and surfaces over time

Visualize volume images and objects in real time using a wide selection of rendering modes.

Automatically or manually identify objects based on morphology, intensity, size and many more parameters.

Validate segmentation by superimposing objects on the original volume image.

Interact dynamically with individual objects.

Create the most impressive pictures and animations for your publication with just a few mouse clicks.
