The LAB SCANALYZER LS30 is a medium to high throughput screening platform used to accurately monitor a wide range of samples including small plants, leaf disk assays, fungi, cultures and small organisms such as mosquito larvae or nematodes.
Cameras move over an array of 48 multi-well plates, assessing up to 4032 different samples in one run. To increase throughput, plates may be stacked and rotated by an optional automated stacker. Larger versions are also available to accommodate 72 or 84 multi-well plates at one time.
The enclosed environment of the LS30 guarantees consistent and reproducible imaging conditions, suitable for four camera types supplied by LemnaTec (VIS, NIR, IR and Fluorescence). Lighting options include backlight, direct or diffused top light and fluorescent imaging with blue light excitation.
Cameras can be easily repositioned to suit different plant containers and illumination conditions. Zoom lens systems allow imaging of fully grown Arabidopsis rosettes, complete multi-well plates or even single wells.

Image analysis systems are far superior to the human eye for quantitative classification of colours. The colour information of every pixel is interpreted as ecotoxicologically relevant information. We discuss four different ways to classify and quantify the colour of duckweed.
Automated quantitative phenotyping of complete plants provides an almost unlimited number of morphological parameters that are easily correlated with biological effects over time. Similar approaches can be adopted for a wide range of other biological applications.
Region-based feature extraction focuses on the local distribution of low level features such as colour and texture.
Image workflows are used to monitor the growth of duckweed over time
