Allied Vision and the µManager Team have jointly implemented a powerful combination of software and hardware for microscopic imaging applications. With the available µManager adapter Allied Vision cameras can easily be configured and used to acquire high-quality images for microscopy tasks, such as live preview and real-time control, time-lapse imaging, multi-channel imaging, or z-stacking.
µManager is an open-source project hosted on GitHub, developed, and written by both software developers and users. It is a software tool for image acquisition and the control of microscope hardware, including light sources, filter wheels and cameras. It works with microscopes from major manufacturers (e.g., Leica, Nikon, Olympus, or Zeiss), most scientific-grade cameras and many peripherals used in microscope imaging. It is available for free and can be downloaded on the µManager webpage: https://micro-manager.org/.
Allied Vision is now officially listed as supported camera vendor and suitable cameras are listed in the µManager documentation https://micro-manager.org/Device_Support.
