microDimensions today released a major update of its flagship product Voloom, the fastest software in its class to reconstruct serial sections and facilitate 3D histology. microDimensions Voloom 2.4 can export fully aligned sections in a resolution four times higher than the screen resolution. They can be stored as image series or 3D volumes in the TIFF, IMS (Bitplane Imaris), or MHA (ITK MetaImage) file formats.


  • it now supports reading Hamamatsu NDPI and Aperio SVS confocal images and Z stacks,
  • handling of electron microscopy images is improved,
  • wrong or missing metadata can be corrected by manually specifying in-plane pixel spacing and background color,
  • the user interface was improved,
  • and, besides other enhancements, saving and loading on Korean Windows installations was fixed.
