Sandia SPT is intended to provide an easy to use single particle tracking implementation, including source code for all the required steps (spot detection, localization, and linking observations). This software was developed as part of a book chapter1 introducing the reader to techniques to fluorescently label individual proteins in living cells and extract their quantitative dynamics. As such, algorithms were selected for their ease of use and understandability, not necessarily to represent the state of the art. Please see the book chapter for more detailed information and instructions on how to use Sandia SPT.

Sandia Hyper-UBS is designed to remove cosmic ray spikes from hyperspectral data sets. This software was based upon the UBS-DM algorithm by D.M. Zhang and Do Ben-Amotz.1 The UBS-DM-HS algorithm is designed to be more robust and is better at removing cosmic ray spikes which impact multiple pixels. See the associated journal article2 for more details. Sandia Hyper-UBS also provides implementations of the other algorithms tested in the journal article.
