Continuous Particle Imaging and Classification

CPICS 1000-e

In-Situ microscope with embedded processing and region of interest (ROI) extraction software. 

 

Using darkfield illumination, the CPICS-1000-e captures high-resolution color images, showing features as small as 10µm and as large as several cm.

 

Color information is key to high-accuracy classification while also providing important physiological information such as pigmentation due to grazing on phytoplankton. 

 

Utilizing an open-flow approach to water sampling allows the delicate structures of plankton and particles to remain intact as do predator-prey interactions.
