LabSmith has an innovative new automation software package that makes it easy to use real-time microscope imagery to control flow automatically. Our latest uProcess software includes a plug-in for automated control of the SVM340. Now you can write sequences to control SVM340 stage position, illumination, snapshots, and videos. When used in combination with the uProcess automated fluid handling devices (syringe pumps, valves, and pressure sensors), the new software provides complete experiment and imaging control. The uProcess software update is FREE to all SVM340 and uProcess customers.

A new version of Sequence software is now available. The software and firmware update includes changes that dramatically improve stability, accuracy, and speed of the voltage regulation, improve the accuracy of current measurements and decrease noise on current regulation.
The new features of Sequence V. 1.156 include the following:
- Substantially better accuracy and hardware compensation in current measurements (>256x);
- Better accuracy and stability for constant current operation, particularly at micro- and nano-ampere levels;
- Dramatically improved voltage-regulation stability at low voltages and loads;
- Stable closed-loop voltage regulation at zero load down to +/- 20 V typically and stable passive (open-digital-loop) regulation at 0 V, typically;
- 256x improvement in passive (open-digital-loop) regulation accuracy (0.1 V, typical); and
- Reduced voltage settling time and improved waveform-generation capabilities.
These features are useful for more precise constant-current and low-current operation, low voltage operation, and output noise performance across the operating envelope.

A result of the improvement is a change in the front-panel LED indicators compared to previous software versions. A table showing you should expect to see with the new version is also available at http://labsmith.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/HVS448-Front-Panel-LEDs.pdf .
