Data analysis tools


  • 5 Offline analysis computers (OA1-5) – on-site and remote access
  • 3 Workstations (WS1-3) with high computation power and with available leading-edge Image Analysis software (Amira, Imaris, NIS-Elements AI, Huygens) – remote access only
  • To get access to workstations and OA computers remotely, users outside the Faculty of Science at BIOCEV need to contact Dalibor Pánek, Please, provide your BIOCEV user name for access via VPN and/or IP address for direct access from computers at BIOCEV.

Data management (OMERO):

OMERO (Open Microscopy Environment) is a powerful platform designed to facilitate the management, sharing, and analysis of microscopy data. Researchers can access OMERO at IMCF through a web interface at, making it easy to view and analyze their datasets remotely.

OMERO aligns with the FAIR principles, which stand for Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable. By adhering to these principles, OMERO ensures that microscopy data becomes more discoverable and accessible, fostering data sharing and reusability across research communities. The FAIR principles promote open science and contribute to the integrity and transparency of research.

For access to OMERO, users must have a valid BIOCEV account.

  1. Request an access to OMERO from IMCF staff and wait for confirmation.
  1. Log in at with your BIOCEV credentials.
  1. If successfully logged in, an account has been created for you. You should see something like this (with your name instead)
  1. Let the IMCF staff know that you successfully logged in and your account will be linked with relevant data repositories.
  1. When linked, you can access shared data by clicking on the panel users ‘yourname’. List of groups you have been granted access to will be shown. To show data, choose All Members from the associated group.
  1. Images are to be found inside Project (grey) and Dataset (green) folders.
