I am attempting to extract metadata from files generated by the GE Incell Analyzer which gives filenames in the form of:
C - 6(fld 1 wv TL - Bright field - open z 01).tif
The problem comes when writing the Regex for the filename, as when it hits the first “(” I cannot remove it as it thinks I’m opening up a new part of the expression.
I don’t really want to batch convert the filenames as I’m worried the Incell Analyzer won’t be able to read the files properly (also this would take a long time in itself as I have ~2Tbytes of data).
How can I extract the well column, well row, field and z stack level from the above filename?
