How to deal with Axoscope files for later import into FileMaker
AKA - Some notes from the Schmidt lab on file naming formats, location
of raw files, converting from ABF to analysis files, using getrundata to
extract time tag and other experimental details from Axoscope files.
Preamble - these are some of the conventions and formats we decided to
use in developing our version of the FileMaker database. Some of this
information may be of use to other labs when considering or developing
their own version of a FileMaker database, particularly for in vitro
locomotor experiments, and so we have included it here.
N.B.: For best results, please make sure you are using version
20171101 or later of the SCRC analysis software, to have the latest updates
This version can handle ABF2 format files from pClamp/Axoscope version 10.x,
and will preserve the full 16-bit resolution of data in ABF1 or ABF2 files.
