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.
