The versatile phenotyping system for laboratories – your entry to the phenotyping world.

  • For many sample types in plant research, breeding and beyond

  • Save time and labor in phenotyping
  • Application-oriented analytical workflows
  • Reproducible and standardizable through unified image and information storage, and analyses

  • The laboratory phenotyping system is available in three models – PhenoAIxpert, PhenoAIxpert Pro, PhenoAIxpert ES

Application examples

Plant TrayPhenotyping Arabidopsis

Arabidopsis growth assay

Trays with growing Arabidopsis plants were imaged with PhenoAIxpert and images were processed for plant growth, morphology and color. Individual plants were identified and phenotypic properties of their visible plant area were assessed. Such tests serve for e.g. candidate screening, genetic studies, treatment effects, environmental responses

Bean Phenotyping

Bean plants were exposed to stress and phenotyped for stress responses. Images were recorded and processed with PhenoAIxpert Pro. This system enables vertical and horizontal multi-view imaging. Phenotypic traits comprise growth, morphology, and color analysis, e.g. as stress indicator for chlorosis and necrosis.

Red, green, and blue channel imaging – color-coded visualization of reflectance, channels allow calculating RGB images.

Root Phenotyping

Using the PhenoAIxpert Root, traits of soil-grown roots in rhizotrons can be measured. Root properties like root lenght, root density, or root system lenght and width can be assessed.

Phenotyping of seedlings on petri dish

Assessing shoot and root traits of agar-grown seedlings with PhenoAIxpert: shoots and roots are recognized separately and measured for their individual size. In the current example, primary root length, secondary root length, and shoot area were measured for each seedling.

LemnaTec Product Matrix

LemnaTec offers imaging and image processing technologies for several applications that suit for low to high throughput in laboratory, greenhouse or outdoor environments. Technologies are adapted to various sample types and can be combined with automation. All imaging systems are combined with dedicated image processing software, including user-programmable functions and machine learning.

We bought a LemnaTec LabScanalyzer (the predecessor of PhenoAIxpert) in July 2018. The instrument was delivered to us and installed remotely by a Lemnatec technician that instructed us about the use of the instrument. We were happy about the service: very good communication and excellent instrument set-up. The Lemnatec LabScanalyzer works nicely and is even more user-friendly than we expected. Almost no training of new users is needed. We hope to expand the uses of the instrument to obtain additional phenotyping options in the future, by interacting with LemnaTec.
