Image Analysis

Image Analysis 


There is a range of equipment for image analysis, deconvolution, tracking and colocalisation:

  • Volocity is imaging software used with 2D and 3D images. It has many features including: colocalisation, deconvolution (‘fast’ to improve an image for presentation and ‘iterative’ to sharpen an image for analysis) and movie sequence capabilities. There are also many other options including: collating and viewing data graphically, creating 3D representations of data and tracking specific objects through a time sequence.
  • Huygens Professional is tailored for deconvolution/restoration of microscopic images. Our version also has modules for advanced object finding/tracking, 3D rendering, chromatic aberration correction and colocalisation.
  •  Fiji is an image processing package. It can be described as a "batteries-included" distribution of ImageJ (and ImageJ2), bundling Java, Java3D and a lot of plugins organized into a coherent menu structure. It is freely available.


  • Deconvolution of data stacks.
  • Measurement of colocalisation.
  • Quantification of areas, volumes and regions of interest.
  • Cell/molecule tracking in 3D and 4D.
  • Image analysis and quantification of areas, volumes, ROIs, lengths, thresholding, object size and distribution, and 3D image rendering and animation.
