IBS raw data importer should be able to handle floats in some columns

There are four columns in IBS files: Illumicode,N,Mean GRN,Dev GRN
The current importer implementation requires that the Mean GRN and Dev GRN columns are integers. The reason for this is that data generated by the Illumina scanner generates integers in these columns. However, if the IBS files comes from other sources then the mean and dev columns may be floats. I think we should support floats in these columns and the proposed change will not break the current functionality.
I have attached a sample file.
