Experiments

Modeling

  • Sortostat/Model
  • How much faster can we drive it given the timing?
  • Are there more or less cells in a sort vs a screen?
    • No, looked at this before last lab meeting, but should write it up.
  • Do fluctuations in the total cell count correlate with anything?

To Do List

  • Figure out the MATLAB memory leak
    • I suspect this is because I'm not closing the image files properly in the MATLAB script that runs, or it could be something more annoying.
    • Does the leak influence the timing of the events, by making the image processing take too long? (e.g. why does the timing graph get noisy after awhile?)
    • Is it the MATLAB thread that blows up or the LabView? it's MATLAB.
  • output the direction of sorting to the output file
  • Clean up the MATLAB scripts (particularly the image processing, have lots of old versions lying around).
  • Why do I see any variability in the timing?
  • Update MATLAB since the license is running out.

Done

  • Change the code so that when flipping based on the CFP it is the moving average that is used, rather than a single image.
  • Make the list of experiments to evaluate the device performance limits.
    • Sorting at various dilution rates, followed by a sort to extinction.
