Check some helpful resources for image collection and analysis

Fiji is an open-source software for microscope image analysis. With Fiji, you can visualize your results, utilize custom plugins, and create your own analysis macros for automated image processing and quantification. Explore the tutorials to get started with image analysis and enhance your skills.

CellProfiler is a free software dedicated to cell image analysis. It allows you to design pipelines for automatic processing and measure the phenotypes of interest in your images. Follow online tutorials and look at examples to learn how to build your own analysis pipelines. BIC users can also request access to materials from the CellProfiler workshop held by BIC.

Imaris, a powerful 3D and 4D image analysis software, enables scientists to explore complex biological data, visualize cellular structures, track dynamic processes, and quantify features within multidimensional microscopy images. Check out the collections of tutorial videos (123) to get the most of Imaris’ capabilities.

The Microscopy Series on iBiology is a collection of free online tutorials that cover the basics of optics, transmitted light microscopy, various methods of imaging fluorescent samples, camera operation, image processing, and the latest advances in light microscopy.

MicroscopyU, created by Nikon, is an educational resource that offers comprehensive information, interactive tutorials, and timely updates on all aspects of optical microscopy, photomicrography, and digital imaging.

The Fluorescence SpectraViewer by Thermo Fisher Scientific is a tool that allows users to compare the excitation and emission parameters for many fluorophores, helping them find compatible reagents and optimal filters for their experiments.

Euro-BioImaging is a European research infrastructure that provides open access to state-of-the-art imaging technologies, training, and data services in biological and biomedical imaging for life science researchers.
