Company profile

3i (Intelligent Imaging Innovations) designs and manufactures cutting edge live cell and intravital microscopy imaging platforms driven by 64-bit SlideBook software. 3i was established in 1995 by a group of scientists whose wide range of research activities includes cell biology, immunology, neuroscience and computer science. Our collective aim is to provide advanced multi-dimensional microscopy platforms that are intuitive to use, modular in design, and meet the evolving needs of investigators in the biological research community.

Environmental responsibility

3i’s headquarters in Denver, Colorado is a repurposed taxi repair garage modernized using 100% reclaimed materials by Tres Birds Workshop. The building features repurposed hockey glass from The Pepsi Center, a mezzanine constructed of reclaimed pallet rack uprights and maple railroad boxcar floor boards, and a wall system made from 21,000 recycled PET plastic water bottles that provides far better thermal insulation than glass. We use 100% recycled paper and reduce paper waste by replacing large printed manuals with comprehensive digital manuals in addition to a robust in-application help system. 3i’s SlideBook packaging is both recycled and lightweight to reduce environmental impact from printing and shipping.
