The pushbutton workflow in the SkyScan1275 is set up in a way that a few basic scan setting need to be defined by the user. These settings include the important selection of filter and voltage, defining the acquisition parameters such as the magnification, an appropriate rotation step, an image format and a destination folder for all following automated scans.
The same counts for the reconstruction. The user defines a set of reconstruction parameters for a certain sample type, and can save this as a protocol. If different types of samples will be scanned, different reconstruction protocols can be defined and used whenever necessary.
After all settings are defined, the green pushbutton of the SkyScan1275 can be used, and all there’s left to do is push, sit back, and watch the results being produced.
Scanning and reconstruction overlap, ensuring an optimal efficiency and almost no dead time between different scans.
