Image, track and quantify C. elegans
WormLab is a system for imaging, tracking, and analyzing C. elegans and other worms. It has a user-friendly software interface with a powerful model-specific tracking algorithm that collects data about a single worm or multiple worms, even through omega bends, reversals, and entanglements. The algorithm analyzes virtually any video file type, including .avi, .wmv, and .mp4.
Simply follow these 4 intuitive steps to analyze your worms:
System Requirements for Microsoft Windows
For Microsoft Windows PCs, we recommend Windows 7, 8 or 10 64-bit with 4GB RAM and a dual core or better Intel processors (i3,i5,i7).
WormLab can also run on Windows XP 32 bit or Windows 7, 8 or 10 32-bit. The 64-bit version of Windows 7 offers a significant performance improvement over the 32 bit version. WormLab software takes under 100MB of disk space, but adequate hard disk space for video files is needed (250GB recommended) and an internet connection for activation.
System Requirements for Apple OSX
Mac OSX 10.9 or later is required , running on a Mac with Intel processors. For camera support, your Mac will require a Firewire (IEEE1394) port. Requirements include 4GB RAM, adequate hard disk space for video files (250GB recommended) and an internet connection for activation.
WormLab was developed with support from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS)
