What are the “excluded” droplets ? Why are they excluded ?

The image analysis algorithm of Crystal Miner discriminates between true droplets and artefacts based on the following criteria: Size : a true droplet should have a minimum diameter and maximum diameter Shape : a true droplet should have a minimum circularity and a maximum eccentricity Texture : a true droplet should have a texture that [...]

The software recognizes a very low droplet count, even if I can see that they are more droplets in the chamber

There are several reasons why this could be happening: -the basal fluorescence of the droplets is too low (please check that you have added 100 nM fluorescein), - the droplets are compacted and tend to overlap each other. In that case, place the Sapphire chips back into the Geode, and run the "unstacking.js" script to [...]
