The BFPython application programming interface by Bitflow allows engineers with Python expertise to acquire images from BitFlow’s frame grabbers. Available for download from ther company’s homepage, these Python bindings wrap the BitFlow SDK’s configuration, acquisition, buffer management and camera control APIs. The download also includes several Python examples that illustrate how bindings can be used. BFPython accelerates the building process of image applications and reduces final development costs for those experienced with Python code. To further assist in development, it includes several sub-modules that provide convenient interfaces to access features such as CoaXPress camera control (via GenICam), Camera Link camera control (via the CL Serial API), among others.
The Vial Scanner by Schäfter+Kirchhoff (www.sukhamburg.com) was developped for the in-situ imaging of Drosophila pupae and for automated measurement of their size.
