VideoTF software is designed to work with turbidofluorimeter and macrospectrometer based on a high-resolution video camera. The software allows to set various user modes, which include selecting the light source, its intensity and the mode of the thermostat heating. VideoTF allows to select image area for spectral analysis and specify spectral channels for dynamic registration, select their intensity and sensitivity.

The program collects complex dynamic data from all listed sources and records it for later analysis.

               The VideoTF program allows to develop new applications, the number of which is continuously increasing due to an open measuring platform and a wide range of analytical capabilities. 

   VideoTF program controls main components of the turbidofluorimeter BioTF:

  • intensity adjustment and LED light sources switching on/off: red (A), green (C), blue (D);

  • thermostat, which maintains the sample temperature in the range from +27 to +43 °C;

  • two highly sensitive photodiode channels;

  • macrospectrometer with the function of specifying the research area;

Main window contains the plotting area, the temperature scale, the list of data sources for the experiment, the video camera image area, the LED control elements and buttons for quick access to the main functions.
