BioTF software is designed for control and monitoring of the turbidofluorimeter measuring platform. It consists of the BioTF program and a set of software applications.  The software application is a measurement procedure formalized in a special programming language. The BioTF program controls measurement, illumination, temperature, collects and processes data in accordance with the application algorithm.
