Imaris – 3D and 4D Real-Time Interactive Image Visualization

Imaris is a core software module that delivers all the necessary functionality for visualization, segmentation and interpretation of 3D and 4D microscopy datasets.

Imaris is a core software module that delivers all the necessary functionality for visualization, segmentation and interpretation of 3D and 4D microscopy datasets. Combining speed, precision and ease-of-use, Imaris provides a complete set of features for working with three- and four-dimensional multi-channel images of any size, from a few megabytes to multiple gigabytes in size. Conveniently load, process and visualize images acquired from almost any confocal and wide field microscope to gain new and groundbreaking insight from your image data.

  1. Visualize volume images and objects in real time using a rich selection of rendering modes.
  2. Automatically or manually identify objects based on morphology, intensity, size and many more parameters.
  3. Validate segmentation by superimposing objects on the original volume image.
  4. Interact dynamically with individual objects.
  5. Create the most impressive pictures and animations for your publication with just a few mouse clicks.
  6. ImarisTrack – A tracking program for monitoring temporal changes in biological systems (2D and 3D images over time). This feature is capable of analyzing extremely large and complex data sets (e.g. track a group of defined cells within a developing embryo).
  7. FilamentTracer - Software product for the automatic detection of neurons (dendritic trees, axons and spines), microtubules, and other filament-like structures in 2D, 3D and 4D. When combined with ImarisTrack, detection of temporal changes in length and volume of developing spines and dendrites will help researchers understand alterations caused by developmental and environmental changes.
