Overview

Tired of manually identifying organisms in water samples?

Stingray automatically finds organisms based on flexible analysis criteria, extracts morphological parameters of discovered objects, and uses powerful machine vision algorithms to identify and group objects into taxons.

Stingray can be used to analyze offline holograms, or to obtain holograms from camera in real time to monitor aquatic environment for the specific species of interest.

Applications

Benefits

Fast
Full volume (300 slices) can be analyzed in less than 30 sec.

Automated
Once trained, software can monitor the aquatic environment for the presence of the specific species, providing the number of organisms discovered.

Scalable
With powerful database system incorporated, Stingray can store and retrieve hundreds of thousands of images fast. You can specify the time period of the data, or species of interest.

Comprehensive
Over 20 morphological parameters for each discovered organism are automatically calculated and stored in the database.

Powerful convolutional neural network classifies images into taxons automatically.
