Automation using CD7
With CD7 you can create fully automated imaging, e.g. for scanning large tissue sections or to get good statistical data from each well of a multi-well plate. There are several autofocus stretegies, including Definite Focus, software autofocus and support points. The Experiment Designer allows you to set up imaging using blocks with different aquisition parameters. A more advanced automated workflow can be created using the Guided Acquisition module. Here you start by acquiring overview images, then detect relevant objects by image analysis and finally re-image these positions, e.g. with higher magnification, Z-stacks, FRAP etc.
