Extended Particle Analyzer - Different results on PC and Mac

Straub, Volko A. (Dr.)
Dear All,

I have observed some unexpected behaviour using the Extended Particle Analyzer in a macro.
I have analysed the attached image using the Extended Particle Analyzer as part of a macro with the following command:

min=20;
max=300;
run("Extended Particle Analyzer", "area="+min+"-"+max+" pixel roundness=0.4-1.00 show=Nothing redirect=None keep=None add reset");

This generates a list of 507 ROIs in the ROI manager.

However, when I gave the macro to a student for some analysis, who is using a Mac laptop, using the same command on the same image only found 287 ROIs. Manual inspection of the ROI table showed that many of the larger particles were missed.
I am stumped and have no idea why the same macro command applied to the same image should produce such different results just because the macro is executed on a different operating system.

Is this a bug? Any ideas what might be going on?
Thanks,
Volko

You should check all of the Extended PA parameters, because the Extended
PA remembers parameters.
You might check the reset checkbox and then run it twice, on each machine.

 Dear Volko,

Can you provide the complete macro?
My guess would be the black background definition (except the correct
particles are selected by the ROIs) or as Aryeh already stated any of the
other parameters. I personally cannot test it on a mac but have not seen
this behaviour before.

Regards,
Jan

Dear Volko,

I tested your macro and it works as intended and gives me 507 particles. If
the background definition is changed it leads to 0 results. So, currently I
do not have an Idea where the discrepancy of the values comes from.
Or did you meanwhile figure out what the problem was?
Would be important to know just in case it is a bug in the tool.

Kind regards,
Jan
