Converting Image data from Project to Screen mode.


  • In Columbus's Project mode
  • Select the Image Analysis view.
  • Targeting the folder of images you want to convert, select one of the images in Data Tree.
  • Load the Analysis from disk choosing either:
  • Enter the details in the script's General tab to include the mandatory fields:
    • User Name for Columbus
    • Password for Columbus
    • Hostname for Columbus (default being localhost)
  • Click the Green arrow to Apply/Run the script
  • At this point the you should see a message 'Conversion Finished ...' in the Results tab/table at the bottom
  • Before switching to the Screen mode clear the Analysis by selecting the New Analysis button followed by Apply
    • The reason for this is to avoid a rather lengthy error of the form 'Script could not be run because of errors.' This can result if the script is still loaded when switching to the Screen mode.
  • Switch to the Screen mode to view the converted data.
  • To cross reference the original file name to the corresponding well ID select the Plate Barcode level in the Data Tree and view the comments in the Plate Info table.
