CoolLED is extending its integration into major software platforms. This month’s focus is μManager
CoolLED’s pE-4000, pE-300white and pE-300ultra illumination systems have been successfully integrated into μManager.
μManager has a simple and clean user interface, through which it lets you execute common microscope image acquisition tasks such as time-lapses, multi-channel imaging, z-stacks, and combinations thereof. μManager works with microscopes from all four major manufacturers (Leica, Nikon, Olympus and Zeiss), the CoolLED illumination systems, most scientific-grade cameras and many other peripherals (stages, filter wheels, shutters, etc.) used in microscope imaging. Users can now benefit from integrated control of CoolLED’s solid-state LED illumination for wavelength selection, fast-switching and intensity control within the microscope management package.
With sixteen selectable LED wavelengths to choose from, the pE-4000 offers the user excitation matched to the microscope’s excitation filter sets. The pE-300white offers intense broad spectrum illumination, and the pE-300ultra offers the added benefits of precise control over wavelength intensity and shuttering. All these systems are available with a choice of microscope adaptors to fit all current microscopes. Details on applicable μManager release levels for compatibility are available on the CoolLED website. In addition, a number of μManager menu screenshots can be seen showing the extensive integration and control which is now available for CoolLED systems.
