Drops in Hit and Instant Drop Reports
Hit and Instant Drop Reports now enable you to select which drops from the well to include in your results. This can allow you to focus your analysis on separate or similar protein formulations.

Relevant labels on your FRAP images
Labels for FRAP images are now more understandable. They changed from “Extended Focus”, “Focus Level 1”, “Focus Level 2”, and “Focus Level 3”  to “Pre-Bleach”, “Post-Bleach”, “End-State”, and “Recovery Curve”.

Other ways Rock Maker 3.6 can make life easier:

  • Streamlined Imaging Tuning controls
