Improvements in alignment and segmentation tools

Two GUIs to align (sbxaligntool) and segment (sbxsegmenttool) two-photon imaging data from Scanbox were recently updated. Sbxaligntool allows users to perform alignment using rigid translation or a non-rigid deformation of the image stack. The tool now uses all the cores available in your computer along with the GPU.  Rigid alignment can take place at near…

Simultaneous control of an electrically tunable lens and a pockels cell

We are preparing Scanbox for fast, volumetric scanning, by providing simultaneous control of an electrically tunable lens (to focus on different planes) and a Pockels cell (to control laser power). The Scanbox card has an integrated, 12-bit current source used to control the focus tunable lens. Similarly, an integrated DAC on the Scanbox card controls laser power via a Pockels cell. The…
