Objective, reproducible, and precise quantification of neurite outgrowth images is ensured by our WimNeuron online automated solution.

It is specially engineered to accurately monitor the neurite outgrowth process and provide objective data from neuron culture images. Thanks to Wimasis’ high-end algorithms, WimNeuron is able to process an extensive amount of images and deliver reliable results in record time.

You take the images, we do the rest.

About Neurite Outgrowth

The nervous system is an intricate network of neurons, whose correct functioning depends highly in the proper development of its neuron-to-neuron connections through their neurites. Therefore, the building process of a neuronal circuitry that works perfectly relies on the correct evolution of neurite outgrowth, the complex and critical process of neurite formation and development. Its malfunction is involved in an extended series of neuronal conditions and illnesses like Alzheimer and Parkinson, making it one of the main focus of study in neurology and psychiatry.

The evolution of neurite outgrowth and its objective quantification is a difficult task that only with the most advanced image analysis techniques can be performed with success and reliability. WimNeuron – Neurite outgrowth is specially developed to carry out neurite outgrowth quantification with high precision and accuracy to help you make the most of your image analysis.

WimNeuron – Neurite outgrowth uses as input neuron culture images, generated using fluorescence, bright field or phase contrast microscopy techniques. Optionally, neurons can be stained with nuclear dyes (such as the DAPI or Hoechst), which will be helpful to provide extra parameters of the analysis. Besides, the solution is designed with flexibility to adapt to any kind of image microscopy used to screen the neurite outgrowth; so if your neurite outgrowth images do not meet the requirements above, don’t hesitate to contact us and get a trial for your images.

Results that make a difference

For every image that you upload, WimNeuron will generate an output CSV sheet file that will give you insight into the outcome of your experiment. Some of the measurements included are:

  • Number of neuronal networks
  • Number of neurite segments
  • Number of branching points
  • Total circuitry length

Besides, a detailed control image is generated in order to help you to visualize the parameters that WimNeuron provides you with:

Covered Area
Neurite Segments
Branching Points
