The Challenges in modern image Processing for HTS, Plant Breeding, and Plant Phenotyping

Plant Phenotyping and High throughput screening

LemnaTec’s main aim is to quantify human vision on organisms. Whatever images we take for whatever purposes: The first step will always be to generate reproducible and scientifically sound images in a wide range of light wavelengths – mostly going far beyond human vision. All findings are stored and analysed immediately without human interference. They can be reanalysed at any later point in time, generating image-derived values for a huge amount of quantitative parameters according to varying interests and needs.

Finally, science testing is all about effect monitoring and quantification. Depending on the aim of the test design and data analysis, evaluations vary widely and help to generate new information. In ecotoxicology deviations from control growth or behaviour are seen as toxic effects. At the same time the results of nematode, cell culture or fish embryo testing may identify new active ingredients for human or animal care products. In plant protection, the screening of aphid, fungi and plant/animal growth inhibition or development leads to detecting new substances for the protection of future crops. The development of specific growth patterns under stress conditions helps to identify particular gene functions in plant phenotyping, which then in turn become key elements in plant breeding.

LemnaTec has been developing imaging, image analysis automatisation and data handling modules and strategies that fit all these varied needs of research and production in today’s world, thus enabling our customers to design and develop products suitable to meet future challenges.
