Micro-manager is an open source software program useful for automating microscopes and microscope accessories. It is available as a free download.
piezosystem jena has developed a device library for the micro-manager, which allows the control of piezoelectric actuators using the d-Drive controller. The program "micro-manager" doesn´t depend on the hardware and can handle a variety of commands. The device configuration is done only once during the installation of the software and is completely customizable. With the help of this tool, specific positions can be reached to e.g. capture images in defined points.
The micro-manager not only offers high flexibility, but also has these added benefits:
