MicroToolbox (MTB)

MicroToolbox gives programmers easy and comprehensive access to microscope control. It provides hardware abstraction, allowing to control several microscope types with the same application programming interface.

There are 3 variants of the MTB available:
MTB 2011: current version, supporting all newer devices.
MTB 2004: the predecessor of MTB2011. For new projects please use the MTB2011!
MTB: old version, only for outdated devices like Axioplan, Axioskop,...

Please Read Before You Start the Download!

There are different installations available for 32 and 64 bit systems:

Redistribution Kit (RDK): This contains all files necessary at run-time of the MTB. If the .net Runtime is already installed on the target PC, it is possible to reduce download times by using the smaller installation without the .net Runtime.
These installations are allowed to be distributed together with the software of the licensee.

Software Development Kit (SDK): The SDK is an add-on for the RDK, containing the documentation, sample programs inclusive source code and debug tools. Prerequisite for the installation of the SDK is an installed RDK of the same MTB version.
The SDK may only be used for the software development of the licensee. It is not allowed to pass it on to others. Therefore, please use the RDK (Redistribution Kit)!

MTB 2011

For controlling Axio Examiner, Axio Imager, Axio Observer,
Axio Scope, Axio Zoom, Axio Vert, Axiovert 200 and SteREO microscopes and their equipment.

  • For controlling of accessories like stages, illumination, filtersets, shutter, incubation...
  • in most parts backward-compatible to the previous MTB 2004 version
  • Is a server, which allows controlling the microscope, automatically monitors the components and reports all changes in condition by events
  • Contains a configuration program which determines broadly automatically the present microscope configuration
  • Multiclient and multithreading capable
