Quick and Easy Identification of Crop Pests

Nov 06 2006

Syncroscopy, a leader in unique digital imaging solutions for microscopy is pleased to announce that Auto-Montage Pro, its premier 3D image reconstruction software, is being used at a major US plant quarantine enforcement centre, Los Angeles County Department of Agricultural Commissioner/Weights and Measures, to produce perfectly in-focus images, ensuring rapid and accurate identification of crop pests.

Researchers in the Entomology Laboratory at the Los Angeles County Department of Agricultural Commissioner/Weights and Measures are using Auto-Montage Pro to generate focused images of important agricultural pests including snails, slugs, beetles, moths, weevils and ants entering California's ports and airports. Many of these images are being used by quarantine inspectors to make crucial decisions on whether or not to quarantine agricultural crop and commodity shipments containing these pests.
