The Slide Explorer plugin works like Google Maps for your microscope. With this plugin you can:
- Develop a map of the slide in real time by panning and zooming.
- Move the stage to your desired point of interest with a single click.
- Acquire tiled images with arbitrary shapes, including time lapse, z stacks, and multiple channels.
The Slide Explorer is available in Micro-Manager 1.3.46 or later. Before using the Slide Explorer, you will need to run the Pixel Calibrator plugin. The size and orientation of pixels measured by the Pixel Calibrator will be used to ensure that the tiles in the Slide Explorer are properly positioned.
