FibreScan - Fibre Measurement System

About the project

The world-first fibre measurement system

Intranel has collaborated with a joint venture agritech partner in New Zealand to design and develop the world-first fibre measurement system that can make 500,000 individual measurements in less than 15 seconds.

500,000 measurements in less than 15 seconds

FibreScan is a rugged, field-deployable, automated microscopy system. From a small wool sample, it can make 500,000 individual measurements in under 15 seconds and objectively quantify over 12 key fibre characteristics.


Get meaningful data from visual inputs

We used computer vision systems including a variety of image processing, statistical, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques to automate extraction of structured data from image and video feeds.

Better results, at lower cost

The FibreScan not only boasts advanced automated microscopy technology, but also introduces unique innovations such as the ability to recognise and track individual fibres finer than human hair within 100s of images.

This advanced feature, coupled with the system’s ability to make a huge number of measurements, allows it to yield results that are even more accurate and precise than those achievable through traditional laboratory technology.

Additionally, the FibreScan eliminates the need for time-consuming and costly sample preparation, making it a more cost-effective solution for analysing fibres.
