Microfile+ makes it easy to view, analyze, and share big image data from many sources

Microfile+ solves a problem faced across laboratories and imaging facilities. Modern imaging devices are capable of generating vast quantities and types of data. Organizing, storing, and analyzing this big data is a daunting problem that Microfile+ solves. Microfile+ turns large, unwieldy multi dimension data from most imaging sources into compact, easy to manage files that can be instantly loaded by MBF Bioscience technologies for analyses.


Microfile+ uses state-of-the-art compression methods to efficiently and accurately convert 2D and 3D images from almost any source and format into manageable, standardized experimental results. Formats from slide scanners, confocal microscopes, light sheet microscopes, and standard sources are all supported. Microfile+ can convert fluorescent images with no limits on the number of fluorescent and brightfield channels in the experiment.


Very effective for use with images produced by whole slide scanners. Compresses files for efficient storage and web streaming.


 Special optimization to work with multi terabyte 3D images from lightsheet microscopes.

Microfile+ is an affordable tool for Windows workstations that uses multithreading to optimally utilize resources on computers ranging from standard to advanced multi-core configurations.


Convert nearly any type of image to the jpeg2000 standard. This format effieciently stores big image data for fast retrieval, viewing, and analyses.


Compile individual images, such as serial sections or cleared tissue images, into 3D volumes.


Microfile+ can handle complex data formats generated by lightsheet and fast scanning imaging platforms. Nearly any image format can be consolidated into accessible and understandable organization.


Produce popular data visualizations from series of images including deep focus, and maximum and minimum intensity projections on big data sets. 


Command metadata throughout your imaging workflow. Microfile+ ensures that imaging parameters are maintained as datasets are organized, analyzed, and shared.






Process batches of images. Microfile+ ensures workflow efficiency by cueing many datasets for conversion.
