5D Visualization

ThorImageLS is provided as a complete software package, allowing acquisition of a complete XYZCT dataset. 3D volumes can be captured in x, y, and z, or tracked over time to study kinetic events. Independently, you can add a 5th dimension of information by overlaying multiple fluorophores or imaging modalities, all in the same software. The setup and acquisition process is designed to be simple and intuitive for even the most data-rich of acquisitions.

Imaging Modalities Supported

To simplify acquisition for microscopes utilizing multiple imaging modalities, ThorImageLS is compatible with the following:

  • Laser Scanning (Galvo-Galvo and Galvo-Resonant)
    • Fluorescence
    • Dodt
    • Second Harmonic Generation (SHG) / Two-Photon
    • Third Harmonic Generation (THG) / Three-Photon
  • Widefield
    • Fluorescence
    • Brightfield
    • Hyperspectral
    • Differential Interference Contrast (DIC)
    • Dodt
    • Darkfield
    • Phase Contrast

Use one software package for a multi-modal image acquisition instead of switching amongst multiple software applications. Laser-scanned images can be simultaneously obtained with widefield images. In addition, through ThorSync™, external camera data may be synchronized with microscopy image data to correlate image features with specimen behavior.

Sequential Imaging

ThorImageLS supports both standard and fast sequential imaging by coordinating and precisely timing the actions of the microscope with the laser source. Using our multi-channel confocal system, wavelengths may be easily switched to acquire co-registered images and image stacks. Multiphoton imaging using multiple channels is possible at high speeds using our TIBERIUS® femtosecond Ti:Sapphire laser with a high signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and low cross-talk between channels (see the image to the right as an example).

Multi-ROI Photoactivation and Masking

Photoactivation
Light activation for optogenetics and protein uncaging using ThorImageLS can be performed in a number of ways, depending upon the equipment used.

Our spatial light modulator, available for Bergamo® II systems, can be directly controlled by ThorImageLS to activate hundreds of regions of interest (ROIs) simultaneously, individually, or in groups. The image to the right utilized our software to identify and stimulate 100 neurons simultaneously within the microscope's field of view.

Galvo-galvo scanners can be used for the serial stimulation of thousands of ROIs. The galvo scan pattern and ROI type can be specified to reliably stimulate entire cell bodies. This activation is tightly synchronized with image acquisition to maximize the lifetime of sensitive PMTs.

Full-field stimulation is available using either an LED or a laser source. Stimulation can be timed before or after image acquisition, or between individual frames.

Masking
Laser scanning microscopy with galvo-resonant scanners suffers from nonlinear laser dwell times, particularly at the edges of the scanning field. ThorImageLS can control pockels cells, available for Bergamo II systems, to blank edges and mask ROIs at high speed in order to improve laser excitation uniformity across regions of interest and prevent unnecessary exposure to areas outside of those regions. Regions are identified by a simple drag-and-drop across the live image.

High-Speed Video

Image sets can be acquired at up to 400 fps and are only constrained in storage by the size of available hard drive space. Volumetric imaging synchronizes the fast z piezo travel of the microscope with data collection, ensuring accurate scans at user-defined steps. Our real-time ROI analysis can be used mid-acquisition on the acquired or streaming image set at video frame rates, reducing down time for sensitive in vivo experiments.

Deep Physiological Scans

ThorImageLS can tune the operation of supplemental hardware to more effectively acquire deep, high-speed 3D image stacks. The long-travel stepper motor and the high-precision piezo motor can be coordinated in order to traverse large z ranges at user-defined step sizes. Depth-dependent scatter through tissue can be compensated for by ramping the laser power as a function of depth, resulting in an even signal response throughout the scan. For Bergamo II systems that incorporate a variable beam expander, the laser beam diameter can be directly controlled by ThorImageLS to overfill the microscope objective for higher surface resolution or underfill for deeper penetration of light into the sample.

 

Simultaneous Image Processing

Real-Time ROI Analysis and Image Correction

Regions of interest can be selected before or during acquisition in order to perform real-time calculations simultaneously with image acquisition. ROIs may chosen in various shapes and, for photoactivation, grouped together as separate populations. Possible ROI calculations include:

  • Intensity as a Function of Time
  • Mean, Minimum, and Maximum Intensity
  • Standard Deviations
  • Arithmetic Operations
    • dF/F
    • Ratiometric Imaging

Large-Area Mosaic Tiling

When a single image scan does not provide sufficient resolution to view the area of interest, the sample plane can be imaged as a series of tiles, which are then stitched together in the software as a single high-resolution composite image. Configure tile position, size, and overlap for different samples, and enable tilt adjustment to correct for samples non-orthogonal to the objective. This functionality is compatible with both time series image sets and 3D image stacks.

ThorSync

ThorSync™

ThorSync monitors and stores digital and analog signals at rates up to 2 MHz. A software add-on designed to work in concert with ThorImage®LS, it coordinates and synchronizes the microscope's data acquisition with supplementary hardware and processes. Like ThorImageLS, ThorSync application code is available for complete software customization.

This software package outputs arbitrary digital waveforms for initiating and coordinating experimental activities, such as photoactivation/photostimulation. Using the same base clock, analog and digital samples are stored simultaneously and stored to the computer's hard drive. There are up to 16 analog input channels (AI) and 32 digital TTL input channels (DI) available for sampling. Analog samples have a 16 bit resolution across a +/-10V range. Digital output signals (DO) for light and shutter control can refresh at up to 2 MHz. The software utilizes a PCIe-based DAQ that is installed and configured in the microscope’s main PC.

During and after data acquisition, ThorSync stores detailed waveform information visible to the user. Rollover statistics provide real-time information for all signals, and user-chosen location indicators can measure the time and y-axis values for each waveform. As with ThorImageLS, acquired datasets are only limited in size by the hard drive selected for storage. ThorSync data is stored in a non-proprietary HDF5 format that is easily imported into most data analysis packages.

Automated Acquisition and Analysis with Third-Party Integration

ThorImageLS has a variety of methods to automate data acquisition and analysis, either solely using ThorImageLS or in concert with third-party software and code.

ThorImageLS Scripts
Sequences of capture setups and commands can be dragged and dropped directly into a scripting composition area. No programming knowledge is needed for this interface. In addition, ImageJ macros and MATLAB scripts can be executed directly from the script area in tandem with script commands. Scripts may be exported as XML files to share across different users and workstations.

Third-Party Integration
Our software has simplified automated acquisition and analysis using MATLAB and Fiji/ImageJ. Acquired data sets may be opened directly into MATLAB or Fiji/ImageJ using a quick connect button in the ThorImageLS software. The software can also directly run MATLAB scripts and Fiji/ImageJ macros.

Data Export Features
Images and supplementary data are saved in non-proprietary file formats for easy integration with other software. Images may be stored as 16-bit TIFF or RAW files, with calibration values stored in the metadata. Supplemental instrument and experiment settings are stored in XML format. ThorSync and ROI statistics data are stored in HDF5 format.

Software Development Kits (SDKs)
ThorImageLS has open SDKs available for users to code their own device plugins. Contact us using the Open-Source tab for access to these SDKs as well as the full software code.

您好,我想請問幾個問題。 ThorImage®LS這套軟體,是提供購買您們產品的客戶免費下載的嗎?還是需要另外再購買呢? 官網上介紹的工作區介面,是軟體自帶的嗎?還是用戶必須自己去寫呢? 我們主要是想通過「ThorImage®LS→DAQ→Galvo Scanning System」再去掃描sample,在ThorImage®LS上面顯示galvo scanning system掃描到的成像圖,不知道實際上能不能這樣操作....? 謝謝。

Thank you for contacting Thorlabs. At the moment our Thorimage software is only available when included with one of our imaging systems and we do not have a version of the Thorimage software to download separately for DIY projects. Access to the open source project is limited to existing customers looking to customize Thorimage to their needs with Thorlabs microscope. The scanning parts Thorimage is not open source and cannot be customized to function with other scanners and digitizing hardware. If you currently have one of our microscope systems and need a system software reinstall or update please contact us at imagingtechsupport@thorlabs.com.
