Features

Illustration

Automated microscopy data analysis

Voxelytics consists of powerful machine learning models built to reconstruct features from biological microscopy data. 
Train and run the models needed for your analysis and execute tasks such as neuron segmentation, synapse detection, segmentation of organelles, and more.

Illustration

Align and stitch EM datasets

Voxelytics supports volumetric imaging workflows from the beginning. Integrated routines for 3D alignment and in-plane stitching make it easy to turn a stack of individual image slices into a cohesive dataset for further analysis.
Dynamic mesh transformations and smart outlier detection enable smooth navigation through datasets.

Illustration

Straightforward evaluation of results

Run your predictions on an evaluation box and compare the results with your ground truth. 
Visualize and overlay your data in webKnossos to explore your reconstruction results.

Use cases

Illustration

Connectome reconstruction for EM data

Run the Voxelytics ML pipeline to automatically reconstruct your neural connectivity matrix from EM images. Voxelytics ships with pre-trained AI models that work well for many EM datasets.
The pipeline consists of a sequence of tasks including

    Alignment & Stitching of raw microscopy images
    Neuron reconstruction, including type prediction(dendrites, axons, spine heads...)
    Agglomeration heuristics to reduce split and merge errors
    Synapse detection and identification 
    Interactive connectome exploration with webKnossos
Illustration

Dense neuron segmentation of mouse layer 4 somatosensory cortex 

Full dense neuron instance segmentation using modified U-Nets and hierarchical agglomeration. Read blog article.

Illustration

Synapse, vesicle, and mitochondria detection in cortex

CNN based segmentation of all synapses, vesicles, and mitochondria in preparation for synaptic connectivity mapping.

Illustration

Axon and dendrite classification

Integrate semantic segmentation of neuron sub-types (axon, dendrite, glia, etc) into the agglomeration to prevent merger error based on prior biological knowledge.

Illustration

Nuclei detection

Execute the Voxelytics model for nuclei detection on EM data. 
You will have your nuclei automatically segmented. Use the results such as the number of nuclei or their position to make meaningful scientific discoveries.

Illustration

Custom models and analysis

Create your own custom workflows to analyze your microscopy images. Voxelytics supports many image 2D and 3D imaging modalities (light and electron microscopy, Micro/Nano-CT, CT, MRI) and can be adapted to a wide range of image analysis tasks.It is optimized to work with large-scale volumetric EM inputs.
Train your custom models and quickly iterate to reconstruct, count, and measure the size of objects.
