The IMARIS software is one of the world-wide leading software that provides functionality for the visualization, segmentation and interpretation of 3D and 4D microscopy datasets. IMARIS allows visualization of original and derived data objects in a real time interactive manner to quickly make visual assessments of experiments in 3D and 4D. With a large variety of segmentation options, IMARIS provides the user with tools to segment large datasets to identify, separate, and visualize individual objects. The software is commonly used to visualize cells, microbes and neurons as well as 3D biofilms to determine biofilm volumes and to analyze surface structures.
