I attached my comment to an existing discussion.

in order for the data to be imported as a screen in OMERO, it needs to be stored using a HCS-aware file format that the Bio-Formats library understands.

The naming of the indidividual files is not sufficient, some metadata expressing the plate/screen/well relationships are needed. This metadata is usually stored as a separate XML file for data generated by most High-Content Screening acquisition systems.

If this file does not exist, your options are either to recreate this representation using e.g. OME-XML companion files or to convert your data from Datasets into plates post-import into the system. In both cases, feel free to start a public discussion on if you need guidance.

I tried with 5.5.12 and it does not crash and data gets uploaded. Unfortunately, the images are orphanated.

The images have a postfix from 01 to 96. Could this be the problem? Do they have to have a postfix A01, A02, etc. in their name?


When I convert the dataset it just works.
