BioImage Analysis - an integral part of your experiment
Acquiring good data is a prerequisite, but certainly not sufficient, for deriving meaningful information. At the KNIC facility we provide you not only with a high-end workstation and software, but also support with fitted image analysis, direct you to suitable methodologies, or point to specific optimization steps.
Your data is influenced by:
- Sample preparation (label choice)
- Imaging modality (point scanning/ light sheet/ widefield)
- Imaging parameters (bit depth/ dwell time/ pixel size/ source intensity
- Analysis parameters (threshold)
- Define your analysis - what are you aiming for?
- Sometimes you will need separate experiments
- Acquire a minimal dataset
- Manually verify your analysis makes sense before progressing!

There are many good algorithms and open source pipelines that can fit your needs- don’t rush into developing solutions that already exist!
