Sprouting new possibilities in plant research

04 June 2018

As we speak, many universities and commercial customers are using Specim IQ to study seeds, sprouts, even fungi. With the camera, they can detect problems in the vegetation early on, even before they are visible to human eye. From the plant’s spectra you can tell for example if the plant is not getting enough nutrition or water, or if there is a disease about to break out.

In this video, Markku Keinänen, Biological Spectral Imaging Professor from the University of Eastern Finland explains how they use Specim IQ to detect the presence of anthocyanin in the vegetation, which indicates that the plant is experiencing stress. Hyperspectral imaging can detect anthocyanin before it visibly alters the color of the leaves.
