Integrated data capture for characterization and analysis

Project Description:

The desired result from the CMCA project was to implement software and hardware infrastructure that allows the microscopy data (raw image and spectral data) to be stored, and searched based on appropriate metadata. This metadata includes machine settings and other directly available data. It also includes data that cannot be directly captured from the instrument such as information about the researcher, research group, grants funding the research and sample information (e.g. mouse brain). This latter type of information previously required much manual effort to collate, and thus automating its collation with the raw data is of significant benefit to CMCA management.
