WPS Automated Plant Phenotyping Systems

The WPS Automated Plant Phenotyping System allows you to run automated high-quality plant experiments where every plant detail can be visualized and quantified using state-of-the-art transport, camera, and software technology.

Automated Plant Research

Run the plant experiment from the beginning to the end
Based on the number of plants and or genotypes, a small, medium, or large plant conveyor buffer is
selected to run the experiment from beginning to end. To obtain high precision and valuable data, the WPS Automated Plant Phenotyping System is designed in such a way that it removes as much of the experiment and climate variables as possible. Thus increasing the accuracy and value of plant data which is achieved by:

  • Using block designs
  • Moving plants within the experiment over time
  • The use of high precision motion systems.

Image analysis software
Plants never have to leave the WPS Automated Plant Phenotyping System which can be cultivated, treated, and imaged during all stages of the experiment. When individual plants or batches are ready to be imaged and trait-quantified, Patented RFID tagged carriers transport the plants towards one of the many WPS Imaging Modules connected to the automated conveyor system.
Images acquired typically from the top and multiple side angle views will be stored and available for internal analysis. WPS image analysis software also provides the required plant trait quantification and conclusions.
