What is Pico Labs?

Pico Labs is a showcase of our latest software releases. These are beta releases that we are still fine–tuning. They are only available to existing users who want to upgrade their Pico products.

What is a ‘beta release’ and should I use it?

Beta releases have NOT been fully tested by us. If you choose to install and use the beta software you should expect to run into bugs. These bugs may range in severity from minor features that don’t work to problems that may cause your PC to crash. Before choosing to use a beta release you should decide whether the benefit of the new features in a beta release outweighs the risk of program instability.

PicoScope beta will install alongside your existing PicoScope install so if you run into problems with the beta you can continue using your existing copy of PicoScope.


There are currently no beta releases of PicoScope. Please download your copy of PicoScope from the main Pico website.
