Particle Feature Configuration

You can specify additional parameters describing the found particles. These additional parameters (particle categories or particle features) can be set in a simple dialog which can be activated from the particle editor. A particle category can be any of the following data types:

Type Explanation
string A string of arbitrary length. This data type is normally used to add remarks. However, by defining preset values you can use a string category as a nominal data type, as well.
integer An integer number. A typical application of integer features is the assignment of quality indicators.
double Any floating point number. This is typically used for quantitative information (e.g. concentrations).
tristate Actually the tristate type provides three predefined states (yes/no/undefined). However, Epina ImageLab uses only the values yes and no and displays the corresponding states by a (ticked) checkbox in the particle list.
