LMtrace — Neuron reconstruction made easy

LMtrace is our worry-free pipeline for reconstruction of neurons and glia cells in light microscopy datasets. Just upload your dataset, and we take care of the rest!

LMtrace Workflow

How LMtrace works

Create an account for LMtrace.

Create an order by specifying what kind of neurons and how many neurons you want to reconstruct.

Create an Order

1 Neuron

Submit and pay your order easily by credit card.

Pay Order

350.00 EUR

Upload your image stack (TIFF stack or ZIP file).
Max upload size: 60 GB.

Upload Dataset


All done, lean back and relax. We take it from here and provide you with the reconstructed neurons within 1–2 weeks.


In progress

You will be notified by e-mail when your results are ready for download as SWC files (see FAQ for other supported file formats).


Price per Neuron

Retinal Ganglion Cells

Max. 80 cells per dataset

100.00 EUR per cell

Other Neuron Types

Max. 5 cells per dataset

350.00 EUR per cell

We currently offer two separate workflows: one for the reconstruction of retinal ganglion cells, and one for all other neuron types.

For every upload, you can specify how many cells you want to reconstruct in that file. If you have multiple datasets, simply create multiple orders and upload each file separately.

Do you have any custom reconstruction requests, e.g. more than 5 neurons/80 ganglion cells per file or larger image datasets? No problem, let’s get in touch: contact@ariadne.ai.


Frequently Asked Questions

My dataset contains multiple neurons, but I only want to trace a subset of them. What should I do?

For every file that you upload, you can provide a custom message. Please use this message field to indicate which objects you want to have traced or to inform us about other relevant details.

What file types can I upload? How large can the files be?

We currently accept TIFF and ZIP files. Please make sure to compress your dataset into a ZIP archive if it consists of multiple image files. The dataset size is restricted to max. 60 GB.

What payment options do you accept?

We accept VISA cards and MasterCard. Payment is handled via stripe. If you are interested in using LMtrace, but do not have access to a credit card, please contact us at contact@ariadne.ai.

How are the results delivered?

Reconstructed neurons are provided in SWC format. If you require any other file format, please get in touch with us at contact@ariadne.ai.

How long do the reconstructions take?

Usually, your order will be reconstructed within 1–2 weeks. The duration will depend on the difficulty of the reconstruction task and the number of cells. You will be notified by e-mail once your results are ready for download.

What are the browser requirements for the dataset upload?

All modern, standards-confirming browsers should work. Please enable JavaScript in your browser to use the upload interface.

Is my data safe with you?

We take data security very seriously. All data provided by our customers is kept strictly confidential and maintained on secure infrastructure.
