MACS® iQ View

Image analysis software – sophisticated yet simple

We are proud to introduce MACS® iQ, a family of easy-to-use, powerful software solutions that unlock the full capabilities of our instruments. As the first family member, MACS iQ View was specifically developed to analyze the enormous data stacks obtained by the MACSima™ Imaging System, allowing scientists to tap the full potential of spatial biology. Its versatility and intuitive user interface make it the perfect tool to analyze the multidimensional datasets gathered during MICS (MACSima™ Imaging Cyclic Staining) experiments, and to extract the underlying information in an easy and comprehensive manner. Of course, the software’s outstanding flexibility also allows users to analyze any other high-content imaging data.


Easy segmentation

Pre-defined segmentation options based on proven and fast algorithms let you start with your analysis at once. Alternatively, you can flexibly use your own trusted segmentation mask.

Flexible gating and clustering

Phenotype your cells based on biomarker expression, location, or cell shape properties – either through your favorite gating strategies or unbiased methods such as k-means clustering.

Smooth analysis workflow

Analyze your ultrahigh-content data comprehensively by multiple workflows. The workflow editor allows you to organize your analysis steps visually in an intuitive manner. Easily apply stored analysis workflows to other datasets.

Advanced plotting options

MACS iQ View offers sophisticated plotting options and analysis tools, including dimension reduction plots (t-SNE plots, UMAP) and distance mapping.
