Shut Down Protocol

make sure you transferred your data on a server usb-stick or somewhere else than the microscopes computer (user data gets erased from the hard-disk regularly). 

  1. switch off the light sources
  2. close the StereoInvestigator software
  3. shut down the computer
  4. turn off the stage controller

 

StereoInvestigatore UI

Here we would like to point out the following important things:

  • Turn on auto-save
  • Turn on auto-move (so what you see on the screen is coherent with stage position)
  • Make sure the objective selection shows the objective that is actually in use on the microscope
  • If something blocks, doesn’t work… stop clicking and have a look at the error messages (clicking opens a window with details)
