Photometrics has announced the release of the latest version of its Programmable Virtual Camera Access Method Library (PVCAM).
This widely adopted software driver for Photometrics cameras provides life-science researchers with added capabilities in super-resolution (SR) imaging, multiplexed imaging and other applications.
One of PVCAM 2.8.0's new features, Sequenced Multiple Acquisition Real Time (SMART) Streaming, enables users to set individual exposure times for each acquisition of a continuous sequence.
Scientists gain the ability to conduct the high-speed, multi-fluorophore imaging required in SR applications such as STORM and FPALM.
With SMART Streaming, the camera can stream image data with multiple different exposure times without interruption.
Future enhancements to SMART Streaming will support Photometrics' full camera line.
PVCAM 2.8.0 gives researchers using multiple fluorescent dyes the ability to match measurement intensities, which can be limited by the different dye-emission profiles.
It also provides time-stamping and frame-counting functionality.
All Photometrics cameras are PVCAM-enabled and the transparent PVCAM interface supports a variety of third-party imaging packages.
