The QSI SDK provides both a C API (QSICameraClib.dll) and a COM API (QSICamera.dll) on Windows.

The C API exposes a traditional C layer that can be integrated with almost any programming language.

The COM layer provides integration with various Microsoft languages including VBA, .NET and VC++. It also provides integration with scientific programs that adhere to the COM standard LabVIEW, MATLAB etc. The COM layer also exposes an ASCOM layer for Astronomy development.

Plug-in for Micro-Manager

µManager is a 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.
