About the company

Black Mesa Imaging, LLC was founded by Joe Bosworth, Ph.D. in 2007 to provide scientists with state-of-the-art image analysis tools to enable breakthrough research. The company's core values are:

Scientific integrity - The scientific method is at the heart of everything we do. Open-mindedness, honesty, and a constant thirst for knowledge drive us to question, measure, experiment, and improve in every aspect of our work. We strive to make products that include objective quantification and statistical validation and to use open data formats to make your work publishable, reproducible, and extendable. We also truly enjoy science and are excited about your research.

Technical excellence - We strive to produce the highest quality software by developing and implementing the best algorithms possible for accuracy and computational performance. We take pride in applying and optimizing leading-edge technologies in our products to get the most out of modern computing systems.

Powerful simplicity - We fundamentally believe that technology must be presented in simple, intuitive, and well-documented interfaces in order to be useful. Your time is valuable and we think technology should save you time, not bog you down in unnecessary complexity, so that you can focus on your science and not on your tools.
