Image analysis

The demand for quantifiable images and the quantification of bio-imaging data greatly increased in the last decade, from both the researchers’ side and from the side of the editors of most scientific journals.
MCF is providing resources to achieve the best image analysis practices, with both hardware and software solutions.
