Quality control

  • For Multiple stain without internal standard projects, images could not be imported from .ds files.
  • When adding the same .ds file twice, the images were added twice to the same gel/blot.
  • Upon the first opening of images that were added to the project from a .ds file, there was an unjustified Background clipping warning (red).


  • The option Clear selected spots to pick did not work.


  • Matches were corrupted when, after deleting a spot in the Spot edition step, an Undo was applied (the issue didn’t occur with Reset/Ignore modifications). Such corrupted matches are now automatically repaired.
