Abrio File Opener

Note: Requires OpenPolScope version 2.19b (10-01-2014) or above.

Abrio files (.pli & .bkg) can be opened via ImageJ as hyperstacks or via Pol-Analyzer as Micro-Manager datasets. Re-processing is not possible in either case since the raw images are not saved with the Sample and only computed images are available. Importing via Pol-Analyzer provides the advantage of analysis features by displaying the retardance value and orientation information.

Pol-Analyzer:

Set up Pol-Analyzer with a valid User and Session. Click on the button "Convert Non Micro-Manager PolStack to MMgr Dataset". Select the Abrio file that needs to be opened. Alternately, a file can be dragged & dropped on to this button to Convert as well.

An Abrio file should consist of a Retardance and Orientation (Azimuth) image. Please note the Orientation image histogram is re-scaled for OpenPolScope convention to represent angle information. The image metadata from the Abrio file is added as a readable string object to image metadata in Micro-Manager.
