The FluSpec educational software package is a fully contained tutorial on the technique of fluorescence spectroscopy as well as a simulator on which experiments can be performed. The procedure for each of the experiments is also contained within the package along with example analyses of results that are obtained using the software.
We have provided compiled versions of the application, one for Macintosh OSX and one for Windows systems. You will find it at: https://github.com/stephenbigger/FluSpec/releases
The source code is available and can be compiled using LiveCode. A community edition of LiveCode is available at http://livecode.com/download/
The FluSpec software is provided as a standalone application. Versions exist that run on standard Macintosh OSX or Windows environments. The software should be run in conjunction with a standard spreadsheet program for the plotting and labelling of the processed output data.
It is anticipated the software will successfully run on a wide range of Macintosh and PC systems. The following systems are examples of ones that have been successfully trialled:
- Mac OSX 10.6 or later
- 1 GB RAM
- Mac computer with an Intel processor
- Windows XP or later
- 128 MB RAM or greater
- 300 MHz processor or faster
