Amira Software at EMBL and DKFZ

Amira Software at EMBL and DKFZ

Amira Software helped Matthia A. Karreman, MSc, PhD, at EMBL and DKFZ, Heidelberg, Germany, in her research project on multimodal correlative microscopy to efficiently target single tumor cells in vivo. The approach combines intravital microscopy, microscopic X-ray computed tomography, and three-dimensional electron microscopy.

Tristan Lowe, Senior Experimental Officer at Manchester X-Ray Imaging Facility, tells us why they are using Avizo Software. "A job which would take maybe a month to analyze a dataset can be done a lot quicker just using Avizo Software. [It] has all these automated methods and is reproducible so it doesn’t matter how many people take the same dataset, as long as they have the same parameters, they will always get the same results. And in research, that consistency is a very important factor."
