Plug-in for Micro-Manager
µManager is software for control of microscopes. It works with almost all microscopes, cameras and peripherals on the market, and provides an easy to use interface that lets you run your microscopy-based experiments. Together with ImageJ, μManager provides a comprehensive, widely supported, open source, freely available image acquistion and processing solution.
μManager has a simple and clean user interface which allows you to execute common microscope image acquisition strategies 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), a wide range of scientific cameras and many peripherals used in microscope imaging, such as stages, filter wheels, shutters, etc.

Notes:There are separate plug-ins for 32 and 64-bit version of µManager. It is important that you download the correct QSI µManager plug-in for the version of µManager installed on your system. Note that it’s possible to install and run the 32-bit version of µManager on a 64-bit sytem so best to confirm which version you are running. Since µManager is a written as a plug-in for ImageJ, launch µManager, then select Help > About ImageJ… The 64-bit version will show that you’re running the 64-bit version of Java.
The plug-in requires that the latest version of “QSI USB Drivers and Software” is installed, which can be found above.
The current released plug-in is compatible with the current posted stable release of µManager (µManager Release 1.4.22). You will need to install version 1.4.22 of µManager, which can be found here.
