When I load a slide into the uScope, the uScope Control Panel displays a number of messages as the slide loads. What are the messages and what do they mean?
uScope Navigator attempts to provide as much feedback regarding operation of the uScope slide scanner. The following messages display on the uScope Control Panel during operation.
This message indicates several things:
This message indicates that the uScope Navigator software has commanded the uScope slide scanner to capture an overview image of the slide.
After the overview image is acquired, the slide tray is retracted into the uScope and is ready to browse or scan.
From time-to-time, the uScope Navigator application captures a blank image (through the objective) to be used to flatten subsequent images from the objective camera. The flat field image is used to mitigate small gradients in the image due to vignetting of the illuminator. It can also correct minor problems in the image caused by dust in the light path, on the illuminator, or on the objective.
A new flat field image is not required for every slide scanned. But, the uScope Navigator application make sure that the flat field image that is used is current.
This message indicates that the uScope Navigator Software has commanded the uScope slide scanner to load the slide and prepare it for browsing or scanning.
