File Types

  • folderBig Folders

Folders represent an usual and convenient way to organize your files.

Note

The root folder can only contain sub folders.

Note

When opening visionCATS, the default behavior consists in opening the root folder, unless there is only one folder in the root folder. In this case visionCATS goes directly to this folder.

Note

Guest users can’t go outside the special “Guest” folder.

  • methodBig Methods

The methods are the root elements of visionCATS. They represent the definition of analyses (plate layout, steps, sequence, evaluations definitions). See Method / Analysis File for more details.

Note

visionCATS method files can be created manually (from scratch), by copying an existing method, by generating one from an analysis file, by importing or by deploying from the Method Library.

Note

A winCATS method imported in visionCATS appears like any other visionCATS method.

  • analyseBig Analysis

The analysis are the central elements of visionCATS. They contain all the input data coming from the source method, as well as the data produced during the execution of the steps. See Method / Analysis File for more details.

Note

visionCATS analysis files can be created by executing a method, copying an existing analysis, redoing a copy or by importing.

  • analyseOldBig winCATS Analysis

A winCATS analysis can be imported in visionCATS, but the resulting file in visionCATS only contain the description of the sequence table and the report describing the whole analysis.

  • comparisonBig Comparison

Comparison files are used to compare the images of tracks taken by TLC Visualizer instruments. They are populated by using the Selection to comparison function of the RF Tools and Tracks and spectrum’s Data in an analysis. See Comparison Tool for more details.

Note

visionCATS comparison files can be created manually, by copying, by importing or by deploying from the Method Library.

Note

Using the copy/paste function between two comparisons is another way to populate comparison files.
