MIPAR v4.2.0 brought pre-built recipes right into the Image Processor. Over 80 recipes are available to browse and try on either the included example images, or your own.

They are called templates as they are intended to be strong starting points for many solutions. Feature type, size and resolution, sample preparation, image acquisition parameters, and analysis needs are just a few of the variables which may vary across applications. Templates can offer powerful starts to solving real-world problems and easily allow the adjustment needed to customize them for your use case. They are there to accelerate your learning experience and build our applications specialists’ combined decades of recipe building experience directly into MIPAR.

Recipe Templates may be filtered by category, searched by keywords in their names and descriptions, and those with available video demos will offer links right in the description box.

Through the “Support” button, our team is always a click away, should you be interested in having a recipe rapidly custom-built for your application.
