If you have a valid MATLAB license it is recommended to use MIB for MATLAB environment version!

Release R2022a is not recommended to work with microscopy TIF files, use R2021b instead

To download MIB please select the distribution and press the corresponding button on the right:
  • MATLAB version - we recommend to use this option, requires MATLAB license
  • Academic Standalone for Windows - MIB compiled for MATLAB R2023b
  • Academic Standalone for Windows, recent MATLAB - MIB compiled for the recent release of MATLAB
  • Academic Standalone for MacOS - MIB compiled for MATLAB R2021b for Mac OS
  • Academic Standalone for Linux - MIB compiled for MATLAB R2024a for Linux
  • GitHub - MIB source code on GitHub, virtually identical to the MATLAB version above
