rebranding arivis and APEER software products to ZEISS


ZEISS streamlined software solutions and AI models


The ZEISS arivis Scientific Image Analysis Platform

ZEISS arivis offers a family of software products, toolkits and modules for multi-modal, multi-dimensional microscopy data that scales, parallelizes, integrates and connects all image analysis pipelines. arivis facilitates image data proficiency and efficiency at all levels, and throughout the organization. The integrated toolsets take care of everything, from the file storage format to user and project-specific computations to standardized reporting. The computational and management hubs that comprise the platform connect your datasets, take care of your central imaging databases and make it easy to apply AI routines such as machine learning or deep learning to your valuable datasets.

Scientific Image Analysis Challenges



The Image Analysis Bottleneck

Image analysis has become the bottleneck of many laboratories for diverse reasons:

  • Innovative imaging technology that enables generating of amazing 2D/3D/4D content at incredible speeds. 
  • Ever-growing size and amount of multi-dimensional microscopy data.
  • Limited infrastructure, which impedes image exploration information flow. 
  • Isolated computational solutions that require IT expertise to produce valid results. 
  • Inconvenient, impenetrable, and costly storage silos, which hinder progress 
  • Inability to scale computation, as this requires substantial addition to staffing and hardware.
