MSI has emerged as a technique suited to resolving metabolism within complex cellular systems; where understanding the spatial variation of metabolism is vital for making a transformative impact on science. Unfortunately, the scale of MSI data and complexity of analysis presents an insurmountable barrier to scientists where a single 2D-image may be many gigabytes and comparison of multiple images is beyond the capabilities available to most scientists. The OpenMSI project will overcome these challenges, allowing broad use of MSI to researchers by providing a web-based gateway for management and storage of MSI data, the visualization of the hyper-dimensional contents of the data, and the statistical analysis.

OpenMIMS / Open Multi-isotope Imaging Mass Spectrometry

Allows users to analyze and process images captured with NanoSIMS 50 & 50L secondary ion mass spectrometers (Cameca). OpenMIMS is an ImageJ plugin that is developed for biomedical research. This tool is able to open, treat and save stacks of images for up to 7 different isotopes. Image ratios and Hue-Saturation-Intensity (HSI) maps of any combination of isotopes can be displayed. Moreover, it can display all data from any number of Regions of Interest (ROIs) extracted, analyzed and tabulated for single images.
