OMERO.figures (Tuesday, April 11, 2017)

Maybe some of you already noticed, we got a little addition to our OMERO server. It is an additional web application (thus not available from the desktop client), that allows to produce figures from your images.  Bellow are some screenshots that give an idea how it looks like:



OMERO.figure is tailored for microscopy images and has the functionality to quickly produce a pdf-figure and does not clutter the interface with anything unnecessary.

Happy publishing!

STEDYCON demo (Tuesday, March 21, 2017)

We will host a demo of Abberior’s new STED system, a compact add-on that brings sub-diffraction imaging capability to regular epifluorescence microscopes.

You can register fro training sessions on March 29 and book unattended testing  slots until April 7th. All this for free!

Further details available from the Demo page.

Imaris: equilibrating the license pool (Monday, February 6, 2017)

This year we managed to get additional licenses for Imaris in order to have a more equilibrated license pool. We got now  a total of 4 of the following licenses:

  • Base
  • MeasurementPro
  • XT

The goal is to have the Base, MeasurementPro, XT and Vantage  as core modules, that everyone should checkout when using Imaris to have the essential functionalities. Vantage has a current total of 3 licenses, that should reach 4 in the near future.

For special functionality we have 1 license of the following modules:

  • Track/Lineage
  • Batch
  • Filament (neuron quantification)
  • Cell
  • Coloc

These modules should only be checked out if necessary. We want to emphasise that we got an upgrade for the Track module, that now has additional functionality and was renamed Lineage.


For further information please consult our Imaris documentation page.

New GFP filters on VisiScope (Tuesday, October 25, 2016)

New GFP filters with a narrow bandwidth  (ET510/20nm) were installed on the Visitron Spinning Disk Confocal Microscope.  The filters allow to image GFP in combination with a spectrally close red fluophore such as Nile Red.mega-chroma-individual-filters

Batch-Processing with Imaris (Thursday, October 20, 2016)

We just acquired the batch module for Imaris. For those who have many different conditions of the same specimen, this will facilitate the image-processing. Segmentation parameter defined on a representative image can be saved and applied on other datasets.

You can find more practical information on how to use Imaris here.
