Acquisition software

Want software for analyzing blood vessel diameter online?

The VasoTracker data acquisition software was written to allow us to measure the diameter of blood vessels mounted in a pressure myograph. It is a standalone, open source software package. You can use it with any hardware you like!

Installation Prerequisites

Before installing VasoTracker, camera drivers, Arduino IDE, and µManager must be installed. For the Thorlabs DCC1545M camera:

Latest Acquisition Software Release

VasoTracker is now be compatible with most of the cameras that are supported by µManager. If you would like to take advantage of this functionality:

      • use µManager to create a configuration file for your camera.
      • save the configuration file as “MMConfig.cfg”
      • place the .cfg file in the main VasoTracker folder.
      • run VasoTracker and select “uManagerCam” as the source.

If your camera is not listed as compatible, get in touch with us and we will update the software to allow you to use your camera. If you have a Danish Myo Tech pressure myograph system, you should be able to connect to the camera in uManager using The Imaging Source drivers (see here) or OpenCV drivers (see here).

Vasotracker 1.1 is coming… stay tuned or download a previous version below.

Important note

To make things simple, we have compiled each VasoTracker version into a single file installer. Some computing systems may not be compatible with these installer files. If you have trouble getting VasoTracker to run,  you may need to install the source code (see the alternative installation methods in the user guide).
