This submission will now wait until an administrator reviews it and chooses whether to add it to the directory. If you would like to become an admin, then visit the directory mailing list and introduce yourself.
Admins, this may be a request for a new entry. First run some searches for the page. Admins may create the page after making sure that it doesn't already exist under a similar name. (You may also want to edit the part of the URL after "/Entry/", then load that address, to make sure it is concise and doesn't contain strange characters or unwanted spaces.)
Admins, when you are done incorporating any needed changes from this page into a main entry, please edit this page and change the following text from:
|Finished review=No to:
|Finished review=yes. This helps keep submissions organized. (Note that doing this isn't what adds the entry to the directory.)
|Short description||The Open Source Microscopy Software|
|Full description||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. µManager runs as a plugin to ImageJ, is Open Source, and is free. µManager is developed in Ron Vale's laboratory at UCSF and is funded by an NIH grant R01-EB007187 from the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NBIB). µManager serves a double purpose: It is a complete image acquisition and microscope control package, available for Windows, Mac and Linux, easy to install and configure right "out-of-the-box", with built-in functionality and user interface for most common tasks performed in a Life Science laboratory. It also is a software framework for implementing advanced and novel imaging procedures, extending functionality, customization and rapid development of specialized imaging applications.|
