For projects where users are interested in acquiring their images at the CCI without the need of support in image processing or analysis, then the image data is directly transferred from the microscopes to our transfer server. The users can then go to their own data storage solutions and download the image data from the transfer server. In such cases the CCI handles safekeeping of the data until it reaches the user’s data solution. After this, the data is removed from the CCI server.
At the CCI we grant access to our users to our dedicated workstations for image processing and analysis. In this case users can directly transfer or stream their image data to our workstations, then analyze their data, and finally use the transfer server to save the processed data on their own data storage solutions.
Processing Server & Remote Access
When the image analysis tasks are particularly challenging, or the sheer size of the image data makes it difficult for the users to interact with their data, we offer customized software development and remote access to our image processing and analysis server, the HIVE from ACQUIFER. Further, we are working in close collaboration with Cytomine to develop a web-based data browser and image analysis solution for our users. These servers allow the users and the CCI image analyst to interact efficiently with the image data. Once the image processing and analysis steps are finished the user transfer their data to their own data storage solution.
Data acquired outside of the CCI
You are welcome to approach the CCI staff when you need support on image analysis. In this regard the CCI offers two general service models: consultation and full service. For more details please go to the image analysis page.
