Glencoe Software to Distribute Licenses for UW Imaging Software

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Glencoe Software said today that it will serve as the exclusive commercial license provider for imaging software developed at the University of Wisconsin at Madison’s Laboratory for Optical and Computational Instrumentation.
Under the agreement, Glencoe Software will provide the Bio-Formats software to laboratory clients under the GNU General Public License Version 3.
“While we are dedicated to keeping the open source nature of Bio-Formats, this agreement ensures that commercial organizations can make use of Bio-Formats as well,” LOCI Director Kevin Eliceiri said in a statement.
LOCI is a member of the Open Microscopy Environment Consortium, a group of academic imaging labs focused on biological imaging research tools.
