Miniscope Control and Acquisition Software

Our DAQ software was custom built for our microscope system. It is written in C++ using Microsoft Foundation Class (MFC) and uses Open Computer Vision (OpenCV) for image acquisition and online image processing. The software is multi-threaded and provides a completely independent thread for online image processing for real-time feedback. This software has the following features

  • Connects to both the microscope imaging sensor and behavioral camera and syncs/time stamps frame acquisition from both cameras
  • Adjustable ROI for behavioral camera
  • Exposure and gain control
  • Display of saturated pixels
  • Monochromatic and color imaging sensor display. Color sensor display can remove individual color channels
  • Dual LED intensity control
  • Display of current read and write frame rates
  • Programmable recording length
  • Time stamped note taking during recording
