Engineering your way through image analysis
By integrating the complementary strengths of best 3D/4D visualization, image analysis and interpretation, Imaris promises to help your research at the front line of your field.
Imaris systematically encompass both complex structural and dynamic data analysis, measures changes in structure over time and provides qualitative and quantitative image information supporting and enabling:
Evaluation of changes in asphalt microstructure, analysis of metallic structures, characterization of nanoemulsions, investigation of liquid marbles, analysis of dendrimers architecture or development of a new granular media
“ The ‘‘spot object’’ feature of Imaris, which was proven to be the most effective method for particle tracking in asphalt concrete blocks , was used to determine the particle movement. ”

Imaris was used to analyse the structure of the phase-separation membrane. 2D images of the membrane made of a blend of PAMAM dendrimer immobilized in a PEG dimethacrylate network were processed to create 3D reconstructions of the interface of PEG and the PAMAM dendrimers. Imaris was also used to quantify the volume fractions, interface area, and other characteristics of the phase-separated structure

“ I would like to say that I have been really impressed with using IMARIS and wish I could use the software for all of my research work. It is so fascinating to see how the software can enhance images and high-light certain parts of the image (with different dyes) so that science can be presented at its best. ”
