Visiopharm Image Analysis

We now have a single seat license for the Visiopharm Oncotopix image analysis suite.  We will continue to support the Aperio image analysis tools for cell counting and area quantification.  The Visiopharm suite will give us added functionality including CISH/FISH analysis (spot counting per cell), pancrease islet quantification, lipid vacuole quantification, neurite lengh measurments, etc.  The tissue align tool can be used to overlay serial sections for virtual double labeling.  The app authoring tool allows us to further customize algorithms based on researchers needs and answer more specific research questions.  Contact us for more information.
