Virtual Reality Based

Scientific Visualization Tools

for Biomedical Research

 

Immersive Science has created a virtual reality (VR) image manipulation tools to accelerate the understanding of complex 3D image-stacks. We make it fast and simple to engage with your images, to see, interact, and collaborate, all while immersed in a synchronized virtual 3D work environment. We bring the full power of the human visual perception system to your research questions.

DOWNLOAD ExMicroVR V2.5

View multi-channel confocal microscope image-stacks in fully immersive virtual reality. Compatible workstation based VR systems, like Oculus Rift-S, Oculus Quest in Link Mode, HTC Vive, and Microsoft Mixed Reality (WMR) systems like Samsung Odyssey.  Developed for researchers to allow you to see details of cell structure in your images that you have never seen or appreciated before.

  • Use ImageJ to prepare image files in NIfTI format
  • Load up to 30 channels of 3D image stacks
  • Grab image and manipulate for fast identification of regions of interest
  • Quickly connect with other researchers online to discuss and manipulate images
  • Adjust image settings (brightness, threshold, etc.) for each channel individually
  • Grab image and manipulate for fast identification of regions of interest
  • Compatible with NVIDIA 1070 class VR workstations (not cell phone based VR)

Use ImageJ (free from NIH) to pre-process your images and to convert them to NIfTI (.nii) file format for viewing in ConfocalVR.

About

Background: Immersive Science was started to build and distribute custom VR applications for the biomedical research community. ImmSci (“im sigh”) builds on the immersive VR experiences that were developed with immune system researchers at Benaroya  Research Institute . Working with those scientists a VR application was created for confocal microscopy. The ability to both see and interact with data (grabbing, scaling, adjusting,  sharing, collaborating) significantly accelerates understanding. 

ImmSci tools have been published in The Journal of Molecular Biology, and described in Nature Toolbox and GeekWire. (See News & Publications)
