The LAB SCANALYZER HTS 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 samples that can contain 48, 72, or 84 multi-well plates (depending on cabinet dimensions), assessing large numbers of different samples in one run. Instead of plates, trays or pots can be used, and corresponding adaptors are available.

The enclosed environment of the HTS 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. Different optical configurations are available depending on sample dimensions.

When assessing Arabidopsis plants manually, the visual single point assessment is commonly used. Imaging technology provides automated, fast and reproducible assessment of Arabidopsis plant growth and identification of small but significant differences.
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.
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.
Image workflows are used to monitor the growth of duckweed over time
