PackIO for NI devices

Adam Packer wrote some LabVIEW software for acquiring and generating data from National Instruments cards called PackIO. It is meant to trigger and synchronize equipment as well as record any data, with a few specific modules for electrophysiology. The nice thing is that you can do just about everything in a hardware-timed fashion, so you’re

Embrio for LabVIEW like programming of Arduino hardware

Embrio isn’t completely open. They want to sell $50 licenses. Let’s get that out of the way first. However, it is an interesting alternative for programming Arduino hardware. It’s a visual programming environment, like LabVIEW. In some ways, it is richer than LabVIEW, and perhaps more comparable to MAX in that variable values can be


The BITalino is a microcontroller platform that comes with an array of sensors including sensors for electromyography (EMG), electrocardiography (ECG), electrodermal Activity (EDA), and more. They have several APIs, including Matlab, LabVIEW, Python, C#, and Java.

SciScan: Scientifica’s two photon software

My friend Bruno has written some very nice software for Scientifica’s two photon microscope systems. It’s called SciScan. It’s written in LabVIEW and runs both their conventional galvo and resonant systems. These screenshots are all from the conventional galvo version of the software, but the resonant version looks almost identical (there’s no arbitrary line scan

Helioscan paper is out

The Helioscan paper is out now in J Neurosci Methods. Mentioned previously on Labrigger. Here’s a Labrigger interview with the developers.

Interview with the developers of HelioScan

Last Monday, Labrigger covered HelioScan, a LabVIEW-based, two-photon laser scanning microscopy software suite. Marcel van ‘t Hoff (left) and Dominik Langer (right) are the two main developers of HelioScan. They were kind enough to answer some interview questions for Labrigger. LR: Are there special considerations you had to make when designing HelioScan? What measures did
