Release of Columbus 2.7
We are very excited to announce the release of ColumbusTM 2.7!
Highlights of ColumbusTM 2.7 release include the following:
- Users can search, filter, browse, and preview the Columbus database contents within High Content Profiler/Spotfire (and other clients) to directly download and aggregate cell and well level results and metadata. Users no longer need to export and import data and manually merge with metadata, saving precious time as well as avoiding mistakes during data transfer.
- Automatic triggering of batch image analysis upon image import for PerkinElmer HCS imagers including Opera Phenix and Operetta CLS.
- Enhanced Define Results Building Block
- Support for Assay Specific Building Blocks in analysis sequences
- XYZ-View for z-stacks
