Explore OME in Action

OME products are in use in labs and research institutes around the world. Explore what they can do for you with this selection of demos, live online tools and code-sharing repositories.

OME for Scientists

Try out OME products with your own microscopy data.

OMERO for Scientists

Sign up for our OMERO demo server to test out the functionality with your own data. If happy, check how to start with OMERO in your institution.

Bio-Formats lets you read image data from Java, ImageJ/Fiji, GNU Octave/MATLAB, Python and R. If you're already using Fiji, it comes bundled with the Bio-Formats plugin automatically.

OMERO for Developers
Deploy an OMERO server on CentOS 7 with Ansible

Ansible can deploy an OMERO.server with the same production configuration that we use in the OME.

Single node (all-in-one)
Start a Server in Docker

Or launch all the Docker containers you need with this docker-compose example:

OME at Institutions

Explore examples of public access OMERO.servers

OMERO for Institutions


The LINCS program at Harvard Medical School provides a great example of how an OMERO.server can be configured to host public images, allowing individual scientists to link to their own images for sharing with others.

The Queensland Brain Institute

The Queensland Brain Institute's Advanced Microimaging and Analysis Facility also uses OMERO, including to host public images.

The Centre for Cell Imaging

The Centre for Cell Imaging at the University of Liverpool uses OMERO.gallery to host public images, which can then be viewed in the full OMERO.web image viewer.


The Image Data Resource is a collaboration between OME, EMBL-EBI and the University of Bristol, to make datasets from published scientific studies publicly available for viewing and data reuse and reanalysis.
