Stanford Medical School

Ahmed Salehi, M.D., Ph.D.

“Neurolucida is one of the very few systems that combines complex morphometrical quantification with beautiful display of the results.”

Rush Presbyterian Medical Center

Jeffrey Kordower, Ph.D.

“Neurolucida 360 is clearly the best in the field – reliable, accurate, and very importantly, easy and intuitive to use. I would not try any other system.”

University of Turin

Ferdinando Rossi, M.D., Ph.D.

“Our system worked almost every day for the last eight years with no major failure (we published more than 15 papers using Neurolucida). A terrific machine!”

University of Alabama at Birmingham

Jeremy Herskowitz, Ph.D..

“Neurolucida 360 is a remarkable system that has provided us with tools to study dendritic architecture in cultured neurons, rodent models, and humans, with outstanding precision and detail.”

New York University

Tara Chowdhury, Ph.D.

“Using Neurolucida, we were able to collect, store, and analyze large amounts of data with more precision and accuracy than would have been possible without the digital interface. The software allowed us to trace dendrites, get precise thickness measurements, and categorize spine types easily during tracing. The built-in Sholl analysis and spine analysis tools resulted in quick quantification of all the measurements that would have taken hours to achieve without Neurolucida. “

Colorado College

Bob Jacobs, Ph.D.

“Neurolucida 360 is the future of quantitative neuromorphology. I am particularly excited about Neurolucida 360’s interactive function because it will allow for much more efficient tracing of Golgi stained neurons, which are notoriously difficult to quantify. Cajal would be proud!”

University of Minnesota

Gwen Wendelschafer-Crabb, Ph.D.

“I am amazed at the speed and accuracy of Neurolucida 360. The automatic tracing program is intuitive and easy to use.”

Allen Institute for Brain Science

Yun Wang, Ph.D.

“Neurolucida 360 is very useful for doing quantitative analysis of neuronal morphology.”

UCSD School of Medicine

Harvey J. Karten, M.D.

“MBF Bioscience was highly responsive and innovative in helping me achieve my research goals. I wanted to analyze extremely large virtual histology images in Neurolucida that were originally created using the Aperio and Hamamatsu Nanozoomer image file formats. MBF initiated the dialog with each company and was able to add the support. They further modified Neurolucida to meet the needs of the unique problems and benefits associated with virtual images. Great company to work with.”

Boston University

Jennifer Luebke, Ph.D.

“We have used Neurolucida in many of our research projects. Most recently, we used this software to reconstruct and analyze the structure of pyramidal neurons in the primary visual cortex versus the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex of rhesus monkeys, as described in Amatrudo, Weaver et al. 2012. Our ongoing studies continue to benefit enormously from the AutoNeuron, AutoSpine and AutoSynapse modules of Neurolucida, developed by MBF.”

University of Cincinnati

Michael Hester, Graduate Student

“I’m a huge fan Neurolucida’s cell tracing and auto-detection features, which greatly assisted me in characterizing the morphology of abnormal neurons. Neurolucida is easily learned, intuitive, and was clearly designed by scientists.”

Indiana University

Dale Sengelaub, Ph.D.

“We have been tracing dendrites for almost 30 years, using a variety of home-grown and commercial systems. We have used Neurolucida for almost 15 of those years now, and it is by far the most powerful, reliable, flexible, and easy to learn and use system of all that we’ve worked with. Neurolucida is clearly the product of people who thoroughly understand and appreciate quantitative neuroanatomy. This system has been absolutely indispensable to our research, resulting in over 25 publications. I can’t imagine our science without Neurolucida! Furthermore, the support provided by MBF has been simply outstanding, including program modifications, hardware support and development, troubleshooting, you name it – and always provided quickly, cheerfully, and knowledgeably. Nobody does it better!”

Columbus Children’s Research Institute

Sunder Sims-Lucas, Ph.D.

“I have been using the Neurolucida and Stereo Investigator software from MicroBrightField for the last 5 years, and this software has become an essential part of my research program. Whether it is 3 dimensional reconstruction, counting particular particles or mapping the developing and adult vascular, these programs are a scientific must. I personally have been able to push my research in ways that would otherwise not have been possible. Furthermore, the ability to quantitate and detect subtle differences is and will continue to be critical to my scientific program. I would highly recommend these companion programs to any research scientist.”

Queen's University

Meaghan Wilkin, Ph.D. Candidate

“MicroBrightField has THE BEST customer service in the industry. The staff at MBF go above and beyond basic customer service, time and time again. They are always available to provide efficient, knowledgeable, and unmatched support to both seasoned and novice users of Neurolucida and Stereology.”

Colorado College

Bob Jacobs, Ph.D.

“I have been using Neurolucida for over 20 years now. It sets the standard for what a tracing program should be able to do, and the ease of use has continually increased over the years. I have undergraduates using the program within a week. Moreover, the support MBF Bioscience provides is unmatched–they are the best.”

University of Virginia

Ruth Stornetta, Ph.D.

“I have also been using Neurolucida for over 20 years with over 50 publications that have relied at least in part on the software. The product is marvelous and the support is the best of any software product I own. The work we do would be next to impossible without Neurolucida. The software is so intuitive that even high school students can do basic tracing almost immediately.”

University of Minnesota

Mona Selim, Research Associate

“Our research group has been using Neurolucida to trace epidermal nerve fibers in skin biopsies for at least 15 years. The software is not only great at tracing nerve fibers for counts, length and branch points but as it keeps track of nerve coordinates you can learn about distribution; extremely valuable data especially very early in disease states where nerve fiber counts may appear normal but the distribution of fibers is usually not normal.”

National Center for Toxicological Research

Susan Lantz, Biologist

“I was able to create excellent 3D maps using the Solid Modeling module of Neurolucida. Without your expert advice, I’m not sure our poster would have been ready for presentation.”

University of Exeter Medical School

Andrew Randall, Ph.D.

“We are enjoying using your fantastic software [Neurolucida] and it is making a difference to our work.”
