Spectroscopic single-molecule localization microscopy (sSMLM) simultaneously captures the spatial locations and full spectra of stochastically emitting fluorescent single molecules. It provides an optical platform to develop new multi-molecular and functional imaging capabilities. While several open-source software suites provide sub-diffraction localization of fluorescent molecules, software suites for spectroscopic analysis of sSMLM data remain unavailable. RainbowSTORM is an open-source, user-friendly ImageJ/FIJI plugin for end-to-end spectroscopic analysis and visualization for sSMLM images. RainbowSTORM allows users to calibrate, preview, and quantitatively analyze emission spectra acquired using different reported sSMLM system designs and fluorescent labels.
