Vidrio Technologies acquired by MBF Bioscience

MBF Bioscience, a developer of software and hardware for bioscience research and biomedical applications, is expanding its two-photon and laser scanning technology capabilities by acquiring Vidrio Technologies.

Vidrio Technologies launched in 2014 to provide software for imaging in brain science, mainly ScanImage and related tools. ScanImage is widely used open-source software for laser scanning microscopy; it supports imaging of large populations of individual neurons and allows drilling down to individual cells and synapses.

Vidrio and MBF share a deep passion for helping scientists reveal the fundamental structures and functions of the brain, with Vidrio saying in a statement, “We recognised that together we can do so much more than we could separately. Jointly, our teams are committed to serving the neuroscience community by providing innovative hardware and software tools for expanding understanding of the structure and function of the brain.”

A separate statement from MBF said, “We are driven to do our part to move our companies, the scientific community and humanity forward, and we believe that by joining forces, we can build the next generation of truly exceptional tools to support the future of scientific research.”
