Vortran Laser Technology Inc.’s Stradus laser is compatible with µManager open source confocal software that controls confocal microscope systems. The software allows the user to perform common microscope image acquisition protocols such as time lapses, multichannel imaging, Z-stacks and other combinations of techniques. It works with microscopes from Leica, Nikon, Olympus and Zeiss. The flexibility of the laser module allows it to function well with this software. The Vortran Stradus-GUI software gives complete control of the laser to the user, who can adjust power, monitor key parameters and perform custom program scripts.
