Features

Description

PE Panel

either Plugins–>PerkinElmer
or File –>Import

This opens a panel with four buttons. The functionality of each is described below.

Open…

This opens the raw files acquired with a PerkinElmer UltraView (E)RS.

The parameters (e.g. number of channels, number of slices, number of time points) of the image series are read from the cfg/tim file. The raw-files are imported into a stack and afterwards automatically converted to an Image5D stack.

ATTENTION: If you created a time series of a large volume ImageJ might run out of memory! How to increase your memory

Z-project…

This opens the raw files acquired with a PerkinElmer UltraView (E)RS.

The parameters (e.g. number of channels, number of slices, number of time points) of the image series are read from the cfg/tim file. The raw-files are imported into a stack and a Maximum Intensity Projection along the z-axis is performed for every time point and every channel. The resulting image-stack is converted to an Image5D stack.

Batch Z-projection…

You have to select a folder. The plugins works with all subfolders of this folder if they contain raw data from an PerkinElmer UltraView (E)RS. The images of every folder are opened, a maximum intensity projection along the z-axis is performed and the resulting stack (one image per channel and time point) is saved as TIFF-stack (if you checked the tick box for saving in addition you also have the option to convert the resulting stack to 8-Bit).

File Info

Opens a window where you can find the meta information to the loaded image.

Just let me know if you have any ideas/needs for further plugins dealing with data import/handling of PerkinElmer UltraView (E)RS files.If you have problems in installing/using the plugins just let me know.

Installation

See the general howto.

In addition to this plugin you also must have the Image5D plugin installed.
