There are a number of fields in the uS-ScanInfo.xml file that provide details about the scan. Users can choose to process a scan using their own analysis software. The following field descriptions should help when processing the xml file.
Contains the uScope unit type and objective configuration.
Contains the serial number of the uScope.
Contains the power and light path of the objective used for scanning.
Contains the number of microns per pixel of the scan field images.
Contains the number of microns per X-axis step.
Contains the number of microns per Y-axis step.
Contains the size of a focus step in microns.
Contains the version number of the uScope Navigator application that generated the uS-ScanInfo.xml file.
Contains a GUID for this scan. GUIDs are unique and may be used to uniquely reference each scan.
Contains the pathname of the job.
Contains a user-supplied summary of the scan job.
Contains user-supplied comments for the scan job.
Contains the date and time (in the local time zone) of the scan job.
Contains the image file extension (and by association, file type) of the field images. Valid extensions include:
Contains the number of scan fields in the X direction.
Contains the number of scan fields in the Y direction.
Contains the width of the field image in pixels.
Contains the height of the field image in pixels.
Contains the number of overlapping pixels in the X axis. If negative, indicates the number of pixels of underlap.
Contains the number of overlapping pixels in the Y axis. If negative, indicates the number of pixels of underlap.
Scan ROI width in mm.
Scan ROI height in mm.
Contains the light path type. Valid values are:
Contains the illuminator level.
Contains the focus method used for this scan.
Contains the movement method used for this scan.
Contains the X, Y, and Z coordinates of the initial focus position.
Contains a list of the X,Y field coordinates and focus position of the prediction points collected for a predictive focus or predictive stack scan.
Contains the region number of this scan.
Contains the number of regions in the scan job.
Contains the number of angles in a multi-angle scan.
Contains a list of the angles in a multi-angle scan.
Contains the number of layers in a multi-layer scan.
Contains the list of layers (Z position) in a multi-layer scan. For other scans, contains the initial focus position.
Contains the 0-based index of the scan field X position.
Contains the 0-based index of the scan field Y position.
Contains the Z-axis focus position of the objective.
Indicates whether or not the field was blank.
