This software is a wrapper to Strathkelvin 929 Oxygen System software that can measure the oxygen concentration in respiration cells. While experiment is running, the IOCBio.StrathKelvin software captures oxygen measurements, runs analysis procedures, and displays the results in its GUI program. The software is written in Python and can be easily extended with custom analysis procedures for live data. As an example, the software computes and displays the respiration rates while acquiring oxygen concentration data.
The IOCBio.StrathKelvin software provides a GUI program:
which can be accessed via
Strathkelvin929 shortcut in the
Desktop/IOCBio Software folder.
Since iocbio.strathkelvin is written in Python and uses various scientific computational modules and provides basic graphical interfaces, then the following software (with all their dependencies) must be installed to use IOCBio StrathKelvin software:
- Python - an easy to learn, powerful programming language.
- WX Python - a GUI toolkit for the Python programming language.
- Numpy - the fundamental package needed for scientific computing with Python.
- Matplotlib - a python 2D plotting library.
The sources of iocbio.strathkelvin is available via SVN and HTTP. Note that iocbio.strathkelvin requires Python 2.5 or newer.
To ease the process of installing required software for Windows users, below we provide direct links to the corresponding installers. The installers should be executed in the given order:
- Python: http://iocbio.googlecode.com/files/python-2.6.2.msi
- WX Python: http://iocbio.googlecode.com/files/wxPython2.8-win32-unicode-18.104.22.168-py26.exe
