MBF Bioscience’s New Software Vesselucida 360 Reconstructs Microvascular Networks in 3D

Williston, VT – September 5, 2018 – Researchers studying microvascular networks and vessels have a groundbreaking new software application to facilitate their work. Developed by MBF Bioscience, Vesselucida® 360 automatically reconstructs and analyzes microvascular networks in 3D.

Specifically designed to recognize the intricacies of the vascular system, Vesselucida features sophisticated algorithms that quickly and accurately create 3D reconstructions of images and tissue specimens. Built-in analyses provide data on segments and node counts, frequency of anastomoses, as well as metrics on vessel surface and volume.

Vesselucida 360 also features a full suite of tools, which lets researchers manually trace and edit 3D reconstructions to fine-tune particularly complex image data. Companion analysis software, Vesselucida Explorer performs sophisticated data analysis for scientists seeking answers to their most challenging research questions.

“For the first time, researchers studying microvasculature and how it is affected by illnesses, injuries and treatments for those afflictions, have a tool specifically designed for these studies,” says Jack Glaser, President of MBF Bioscience. “We believe Vesselucida will have a significant impact in advancing scientific research in this field.”

For a comprehensive evaluation on how Vesselucida 360 can meet your research needs, we invite you to consult with one of our MBF Bioscience staff scientists.
