Singhealth Advanced Bioimaging Core: Voloom workshop from 9am to 12pm on 8th of July

Voloom-Singhealth

 

Singhealth Advanced Bioimaging Core is collaborating with Bitplane Andor to conduct a 3D Image reconstruction workshop using Voloom and Imaris.

Voloom is the fastest software in its class to reconstruct serial sections and facilitate 3D histology. Voloom 2.4 can export fully aligned sections in resolution four times higher than the screen resolution. They can be stored as image series or 3D volumes and exported into Imaris softawe for object segmentation and analysis.

In this workshop, we will show you how quickly you can reconstruct serial images into 3D sections, both automatically and manually, using Voloom. Furthermore, we will use Imaris to make object segmentation so that modelling and statistic analysis can be done on brightfield, fluorescence and electron microscopy images.

For more information on Voloom, please visit the Voloom product page micro-dimensions.com/voloom.

The trainer is Steve Chai, Sales and Technical Applications Specialist from Bitplane.

Participation is free. Registration is not required, we have a big room for 60 people.
