ScanImage 2018 is software for resonant and linear two-photon laser-scanning microscopy.
See ScanImage Licensing for pricing info.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for a quotation or any questions.
To install ScanImage, download and run the installer exe file. The installer will install ScanImage into the program files folder and update the MATLAB path for all releases that you select. If you have existing ScanImage installations, they will be left intact. You can easily revert back to a previous ScanImage installation by changing the MATLAB path to point back to the desired installation.
While using the installer is recommended, if you want more control over where ScanImage is installed, you can manually install ScanImage from the zip download.
For more information about initial setup see the getting started page.
Unless specifically noted (as indicated by a compatibility note), upgrading from an older release of ScanImage 2018 to a newer build will not break compatibility with Machine Data Files, User files, Configuration files, or TIFF headers. After upgrading, the first time you run ScanImage you will need to browse to the location of your existing machine data file.
