Predefining Imaging Conditions for reproducable Measurements
To guarantee a high quality image it is advised to select different camera or illumination settings for different applications. When screening Arabidopsis for example a high zoom level results in a high detailed rosette in comparison to the level of zoom used for large plants such as Corn. Instead of applying settings manually, LemnaControl can store large numbers of different configurations and recreate the exact same imaging conditions for the duration of the experiment or apply these parameters to other experiments. In order to achieve this, all components that define the image acquisition of a certain sensor (camera, optics, light, etc) are confirmed and this configuration can be stored as an Imaging Unit Configuration (IUC) to define imaging conditions during experimental runs. By combining different IUCs for all different imaging units (VIS, Fluoro, IR, NIR, etc) into one Overall Configuration (OAC), all imaging conditions can be saved and also later applied to other experimental runs. The OAC determines what kind of image and how many images are taken during an experimental run as well as labeling, storing and alongside the image identification.
