Welcome to HelioScan.
HelioScan is a software package for microscopy control applications providing high flexibility and easy extensibility. It as acts as:
- a collection of software components providing combinatorial flexibility to match different hardware and functionality requirements;
- a software framework within which you can develop new components in a structured fashion.
Scope and functionality
HelioScan can be used for various imaging applications. It is particularly well suited for in vivo two-photon imaging applications. For different application scenarios, read our publication:
