Microfile+ Makes It Easy to Convert, Compress, And Curate Image Data from Many Imaging Sources
MicroFile+ is a free tool that solves a problem faced across laboratories and imaging facilities. Modern microscopic imaging devices can generate 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-dimensional data from most imaging sources into compact, easy to manage, and documented files that can be instantly loaded by MBF Bioscience products for analyses. The files can also be used by numerous other software applications. MicroFile+ also preserves instrumental and experimental metadata and includes extensive functionality for adding and curating metadata to fully describe and document image data.
|Highly effective for use with images produced by whole slide scanners. Compresses files for efficient storage and web streaming.||Optimized to work with multi-terabyte 3D images from lightsheet microscopes.|
MicroFile+ uses state-of-the-art compression methods to efficiently and accurately convert 2D and 3D images from most sources and formats into manageable, standardized experimental results. Formats from slide scanners, confocal microscopes, light sheet microscopes, and standard sources are all supported. Convert nearly any type of image to the widely used jpeg2000 or OME-TIFF standards. These formats efficiently store big image and metadata for fast retrieval, viewing, and analyses across applications. MicroFile+ can convert images without limits on the number of fluorescent and brightfield channels in the experiment.
MicroFile+ is a free tool for Windows workstations that uses multi-threading to optimally utilize resources on computers ranging from standard to advanced multi-core configurations.
I am excited about the tool and its impact on increasing the quality of the metadata associated with the image data. Can't wait to have the channels, scaling, and all other microscope settings incorporated in the image files. No more lost associated files, no more lost metadata.Thank you."
Convert nearly any type of image to the jpeg2000 or OME-TIFF standards. These formats efficiently store big image and metadata for fast retrieval, viewing, and analyses across applications. MicroFile+ supports: MBF JPEG2000, JPEG, generic TIFF, Vesalius/CaliberID TIFF, Flowview Olympus TIFF, OME TIFF, Keyence TIFF, Imaris TIFF, Zeiss LSM, Huron SVS, Leica SVS, CaliberID, HDF5, Imaris IMS, NDPI, DICOM, ND2, and LIF.
Combine 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.
Process batches of images. MicroFile+ ensures workflow efficiency by cueing many datasets for conversion.
MBF Bioscience demonstrates how to use MicroFile+, our new and freely available desktop application, to convert microscopy image data from various proprietary file formats into the standardized OME-TIFF and JPEG2000 formats.
