PYMEAcquire - Instrument control and simulationΒΆ

PYMEAcquire is a general purpose microscope control and data acquisition platform with several features which make it well suited to localisation microscopy. These include:

  • Support for commonly used hardware (eg Andor EMCCD cameras)

  • Streaming to disk of large data series

  • Acquisition protocols which allow various interactions with the hardware (eg controlling laser power) to occur at predetermined timepoints within an acquisition

  • Tight integration with the real-time analysis tools

The basic usage should (hopefully) be relatively straight forward given some familiarity with other microscope control packages. Certain aspects, however deserve further description:
