Zeiss has launched the newest version of its arivis Pro microscopy imaging analysis system, called arivis Pro 4.2. The new 4.2 version introduces advanced AI-powered segmentation tools, enhanced 3D analysis capabilities, and seamless handling of massive datasets, according to the company in order to enable increased flexibility to tailor imaging analysis to unique needs.

"Our goal with arivis Pro 4.2 is to put the power of customization directly into the user's hands," said Dr. Sreenivas Bhattiprolu, head of digital solutions at Zeiss, in the press release. "Whether working with small datasets or incredibly large 3D volumes, researchers can now leverage the most appropriate tools for their specific analysis requirements."

One of the biggest updates to the 4.2 version includes the integration of instance segmentation models powered by AI deep learning. The models are trained on the arivis Cloud and enable users to segment individual objects within images without any coding expertise. Due to pretrained models from the open-source Cellpose library, users can segment cells and nuclei in most images much easier than traditional options.

"In microscopy, no two datasets are alike," Bhattiprolu said. "Some demand traditional segmentation methods, while others benefit from AI-driven approaches. With arivis Pro 4.2, we empower researchers to choose the ideal techniques for each unique scenario."

Improving with the increased adoption of researchers utilizing 3D imaging methods to gain comprehensive insights, arivis Pro 4.2 now allows users to load, visualize, and extract insights from massive 3D datasets containing “a vast number of objects, enabling unprecedented exploration of complex 3D volumes at scale,” according to Zeiss.
