Imaging Software


Imaris allows visualization of original and derived data objects in a real time interactive manner so you can quickly make visual assessments of your experiments in 3D and 4D to discover relationships that are otherwise hidden.

Note: When first running Imaris, it will ask for how much memory is available on the graphics card. To find this value for the workstation, right click on the desktop and select Nvidia Control Panel. When it opens, go to Help>System Information and there it will display the graphics card memory.



Autoquant offers the most powerful deconvolution tools available for life science research. Retrieve better data from your images using the most complete suite of 2D and 3D algorithms available. It offers an advanced Blind Deconvolution algorithm which is both iterative and constrained.

Note: On workstation cbiws10 Autoquant is an older version that has a bug that requires admin permission to run. To use Autoquant on that workstation, please see CBI staff.



BioImageXD is a free open source software package for analyzing, processing and visualizing multi-dimensional microscopy images. The software can be used for simple visualization of multi-channel temporal image stacks to complex 3D rendering of multiple channels at once. Image processing tools include deconvolution, registration and tens of tools for mathematical and logical processing and noise reduction.



ImageJ is a public domain, Java-based image processing program developed at the National Institutes of Health. ImageJ can display, edit, analyze, process, save, and print 8-bit color and grayscale, 16-bit integer and 32-bit floating point images. It can read many image formats including TIFF, PNG, GIF, JPEG, BMP, DICOM, FITS, as well as raw formats. ImageJ supports image stacks, a series of images that share a single window, and it is multithreaded, so time-consuming operations can be performed in parallel on multi-CPU hardware.
