Autofluorescence Remover


Autofluorescence is a long-standing problem that has hindered fluorescence microscopy image analysis. To address this, we have developed a method that identifies and removes autofluorescent signals from multi-channel images post acquisition. See the gallery for examples demonstrating the broad utility of this algorithm in accurately identifying and removing interfering autofluorescent signals. You can find more information on how our tool works here.


For the benefit of the community we have made our autofluorescence removal tool and vignettes illustrating its use available for...



We very much appreciate you referencing our work when you use it.
