SCATTER

#1 Post by EvelynMoreno » 2014.06.05 12:35

Dear all,

I'm using Sacatter to get the average size and polydispersion of several liposomal vesicular formulations. The problem is that I can only run Scatter in old versions of Windows XP, which is not allowed at my institute.

Does anyone knows if there is a version of SCATTER or something to run it under windows 7.

Alternatively, does anyone knows an alternative software to investigate the size and polydispersion of liposomes (and even lamellarity)?

Thanks a lot,

Evelyn

In should be possible to run Scatter on Windows 7 or Windows 8. AFAIK you need Java to run Scatter, make sure Java is installed.

If this is the Scatter I wrote at SIBYLS, you need JRE 1.7 or greater and the latest version 2.1c at https://bl1231.als.lbl.gov/scatter/

2.1c can now use some ATSAS tools (DAMMIN/F and datgnom) but you will need to download ATSAS from EMBL and tell scatter where to find the bin directory in "Settings" tab. After P(r) determination using Scatter algorithm, the 2File button will execute datGNOM on the written saxs data and then load the *dg.out file into a GUI interface for DAMMIN/F. Set some parameters, like number of runs, and Scatter will handle all the independent modelling runs followed by calling DAMAVER. You can even grab the resulting damstart.pdb file and refine the model from the GUI.

Its been tested on Windows 7 and 8, linux (UBUNTU) and Mac 10.8, and 10.9.

Hi,

I am using .tiff file format in fit2d. I would like to use scatter for QDs but file format is not supported. How can I change the file format to use it in scatter.

Thank you
