Features

  • Experiment-driven design

  • High-resolution phenotyping

  • Comprehensive machine-learning based analytical software

  • All major phenotyping cameras and sensors available

  • Configurable multi-sensor imaging

  • Automatic sample loading available

  • Integrable into climate chambers

Multisensor imaging

  • Visible light images provide information on sample dimensions, morphology, and color

  • An IMAGING-PAM camera delivers dynamic chlorophyll fluorescence parameters.

  • Hyperspectral imaging delivers a range of wavelength data for calculation of known and user-defined vegetative indices.

  • Near-infrared (NIR) images capture the intensity of reflected NIR radiation at 1450 nm to measure water content.

  • Fluorescence images capture the intensity of a wide range of fluorescent pigments.

  • 3D laser scanning generates point clouds for detailed architectural and morphological information.

Configuration and options

  • The Base Module supports manual input of microtiter plates, petri dishes, plants in pots or plant flats.

  • Cameras and sensors move across the sample stage inside the base module and are positioned with high accuracy

  • The Sensor Exchange System stores cameras and sensors and the moving arm attaches them for running image acquisitions across the sample stage

  • Light table for MTPs, petri dishes etc. available

  • The TrayProvider™, an automatic tray loading module enables high throughput sample handling for efficient pipeline screening.

  • The HyperAIxpert can be integrated into Climate Chambers

  • Tray Adaptors for use with trays, MTPs and other sample carriers

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.
