Example usage of architecture for high throughput imaging. We have used I3 to provide a uniform mechanism for the capture of information from and the control of this instrumentation. For microscopy based imaging an end to end data capture, and control, system has been implemented. Image data is captured directly from the microscopes and specially built drivers are used to integrate the equipment. The data is captured from the device, parsed into an intermediate form and published via a SOAP interface to a data store. The data is held in a staging area in the data store until resources are available for processing, once processed the data can be queried via both LSIDs and SOAP.
