Micro-Manager Open Source Microscopy Software
Micro-Manager (μManager) is an open source partner to the popular Image J software, but is specifically tailored for image acquisition rather than analysis. It includes support for a range of modalities such as time-lapse, multi-channel, multi-depth, and fast streaming. It has inbuilt support for a wide range of third-party components including the Cairn OptoSplit, OptoLED and OptoScan, alongside a range of cameras and microscopes.
We at Cairn are in the process of adding realtime region intensity plotting so that μManager can be used for experiments that our customers have typically required commercial software to achieve.
In conjunction with Image J we believe that μManager offers a valuable free of charge alternative to commercial acquisition and analysis suites and we are happy to supply systems based on this platform, whilst acknowledging that in some instances it is better to opt for a full commercial solution such as MetaMorph/MetaFluor. Please feel free to contact us for more information.
