SAN DIEGO, March 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Afraxis Inc, a leader in quantitative biological imaging, is very pleased to announce its new ImageDirectSM service, the world's first upload service for quantitative analysis of 3D biological images. ImageDirectSM offers a platform for AI-assisted, expert crowd-sourced human analysis with initial iteration optimized for 'Z-stack' images of neural tissue acquired by confocal scanning laser microscopy.
Academic research labs and drug development teams can now submit images directly to Afraxis at http://www.afraxis.com/client-upload-general/ to a persistent image container object on Afraxis' secure cloud, define the target features, type of analysis, and the desired report format.
