Neuroscientists often need to reconstruct the morphology of neurons to define parameters like treatment outcome, neuronal connectivity or cell function. To date, no effective and reliable automated reconstruction methods for neuronal morphology exist. Therefore scientists spend hundreds of hours to manually trace or outline the shape of neurons in just a handful of datasets.

In the past few months, the team of has successfully developed a revolutionary semi-automated neuron tracing workflow for light microscopy data called LMtrace®.

“I’m proud of our team of biologists and machine-learning specialists that joined forces for this development.”, says CEO Dr. Adrian Wanner. Wanner is sure that LMtrace® will be the breakthrough technology in the field: “LMtrace® is the first online neuron tracing service for light microscopy datasets. It increases the efficacy of neuron-based screening assays by orders of magnitude and enables high-throughput analysis of the neuronal shape.”

Users can simply upload datasets, select the number of neuron or glia cells, and within 10 business days they will receive quality-checked skeleton reconstructions directly to their mailboxes for download.

Just upload your dataset at, and we take it from there!
