We thank LKCMedicine Imaging Facility, for hosting this year’s UGM. This is our most comprehensive training in a year to help users across Singapore have a better understanding on what Imaris can do for their imaging applications.

This year's UGM is focused on in-depth training on the following topics:

The UGM will have a mix of lectures and hands-on sessions to provide you with the skills needed to run Imaris independently. On the last day of the UGM, we have allocated 1-1 consultation sessions with Imaris application specialists. You may bring data where you need our advice and/or help and book a session with us during the UGM. Scientists of all disciplines who use 3D/4D microscopic images in their research are welcome.

Please note that attendees are expected to bring their own laptops for the sessions and the laptops should match minimum requirements as stated here:, and we will provide free temporary licenses. Kindly check with us at if you are unsure of the hardware meeting the requirements.

Attendance will be limited and is expected to fill quickly. Advanced registration is required (deadline is August 23rd, 2019) and early registration is highly recommended. To register please fill out the form below.

The event is free of charge and priority will be given to Imaris users under Imaris maintenance. Bitplane will make selection / shortlisting of participants and let you know if your application was accepted before 27th August. Please accept our sincere apology if you are not admitted to the UGM.

As we are expecting a wait list, please be sure to apply only if you plan to attend. Once your application is accepted, you will have access to all the lectures, hands on sessions and access to demo license with full Imaris functions. The participants will receive goodie bag. Lunch and tea break are catered.
