Hand Held NIR Imager diagnoses in real-time pre-symptom stress/disease days before visible for early field intervention. We developed the patented fluorescence-intensity-temporal sensor with computer software and have continued research and development. Bio Imaging lets the grower, researcher or service provider conduct field testing automatically day or night with immediate results and without sending samples to a lab.
Bio Imaging can detect early non-visible symptoms of environmental stress and pathogens and has application for any crop. For product launch, GrowTech will field inspect produce for plant health and for detection of food-borne disease in leafy greens. Bio Imaging will meet new FDA rules for Food Safety and prevention control. With collaborators at universities, Bio Imaging will be customized (software database) for applicaton to other specific crops. The cost will be moderate and available with equipment leasing programs.
