Okolab Data Import

Okolab Data Import is a free ImageJ plugin used to import data acquired from Okolab incubators and print them on a Image Sequence.


Okolab Data Import is developed by Okolab, an Italian company that offers incubators for time lapse experiments. The plugin allows to print a label on every image of an Image Sequence. Labels concern information acquired by Okolab incubators and imported from the Okolab Smart Box:

  • Time
  • Value of a variable of interest (eg. current sample temperature) at the above Time


Copy the Okolab_Data_Import.class file to the ImageJ/Plugins folder or a folder below. Go to Help→Refresh Menus or (better) restart ImageJ.


Open an image sequence (File→Import→Image sequence) and then open the plugin (default: Plugins→Okolab_Data_Import). Then select a csv data file exported from the Okolab Smart Box ) in the options dialog that appears. If you specify input from datetime file you must also select a datetime file.

Datetime file

The datetime file (when used) must have a number of lines that matches the number of images in the sequence. Every line must have a date-time value in ISO-format (yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm:ss). The first value concerns the first image of the sequence, the second value concerns the second image an so on…
