Requirements - TMA-Combiner
This is a quick summary of the items you will need to
use the TMA-Combiner. Please note that this assumes prior
experience with the TMA-Deconvoluter; if you are new, please begin at
the TMA website. You will be needing the following:
When you have fulfilled all of these requirements, you may proceed to
the walkthrough for setting up your system.
- "Deconvoluted" PCL-format text
tab-delimited files. Files in other formats may also
work but are suboptimal. Please read the file format
- The TreeView and Cluster programs. Please refer
to the TMA system
requirements for additional details.
- Optional: An on-line database of stored images.
As with the TMA-Deconvoluter, the TMA-Combiner is
designed to work with Stainfinder and an on-line
database of stored images. Please refer to the TMA website for details.
- A Windows PC running Microsoft Excel 2000 or
later. This is necessary to run the TMA-Combiner program. Note: the Mac OS is NOT supported,
because Active X controls are used, which are not
available in Macintosh versions of Microsoft Office. Futhermore,
ANY older version of Office (including Office 97) will not work
