Open Source Ties

The Commercial Arm of OME

The foundation of our technology derives from an open source software project, the Open Microscopy Environment (OME). We enhance the technology built and delivered under this world-leading consortium by offering on-demand customization and guaranteed support.

Where appropriate and within the bounds of our confidentiality agreements and intellectual property, we continuously contribute our code, experience and feedback to the OME project. We value and remain committed to nurturing and supporting the OME’s open source community wherever possible.

This unique, precious, two-way relationship benefits the open source OME community and our customers. Both derive value from the combined expertise, with the ultimate result being better, more powerful scientific image data solutions.
