EGGSORTER

The EggSorter is a cost-effective device that automatically carries out the visual inspection, sorting and dispensing of miniature biological entities (from 0.6 to 1.5 mm). It has been specially developed to handle zebrafish eggs (Danio Rerio), but it can also work with similar models (Oryzias latipes, Xenopus laevis).

The core of the EggSorter is a rotary wheel that can grab the eggs one by one and place them in front of a camera (either bright field imaging or fluorescence).

The picture of the egg is then retrieved on the embedded computer, saved on the cloud and processed using various algorithms based on Deep Learning to classify each individual egg.

After this process, each egg can either be maintained inside the device for continuous inspection, or it can be evacuated and placed inside multiple containers, according to its categorization.

MULTIPLE BENEFITS

High-throughput

The EggSorter can be 3x faster than a trained technician. With 1 operator interaction, you can sort up to 500 zebrafish eggs, releasing 66% of your valuable time.

High-precision

Automation helps reducing the number of errors. Furthermore, our classification algorithms are very precise, with 95-99% accuracy.

Standardization

The Eggsorter performs the entire process automatically, allowing greater control of the different parameters.

FUNCTIONALITIES

Screening

Either in bright field or fluorescence (GFP, mCherry) to recognise morphological features, abnormalities or expression patterns

Personalization

The classification algorithms can be personalized to the specific needs of your research

Different outputs

Tubes, Petri dishes or Multiwell plates

Data storage

Tracking of the images and data analysis plugins

USING THE EGGSORTER

The EggSorter has been designed for the users. The EggSorter is controlled via an Android app that is easy to configure. The App runs on an embedded computer which the user can interact with via a tactile screen

Its convenient user interfaces allow for an easy interaction with the device so that it is possible to get the most out of the functionalities that are available.
