Precision Fibre Measurements

Automated Microscopy

The Project

Intranel designed and developed a world first fibre measurement system in a 3 year collaboration with a joint venture agritech partner. This project exercised our expertise in electronics, mechanical design, image processing and CUDA parallel processing techniques.

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.

The Result – Unique Technology

Along with several unique innovations the FibreScan introduces the ability to recognise and track long segments of fibre among 100’s of images. This approach, combined with the huge number of measurements yields results extremely close to laboratory measurements, without requiring painstaking preparation at vastly higher expense.

For the first time in a field based machine, measurements of medulation, estimates of ellipticity and laboratory grade data for the key micron, curve and fibre profile characteristics are a reality.

Client feedback:

“ Intranel did an Incredible job working with us to deliver a complex automated microscopy system with very tight budget and time constraints. The technology is a world first and has exceeded expectations.
