MICROPLASTICS IMAGING SYSTEM
STANDARDIZED. COMPREHENSIVE. RAPID.
To understand how microplastics break down, move through the oceans and collect on coastlines, researchers and community monitoring groups must quantify a robust set of particle size parameters. Saturna is a portable, standardized image collection system used to rapidly quantify and analyze microplastic physical attributes.
PORTABLE & STANDARDIZED
Accelerate your Research
Saturna is a portable research tool that uses customized computer vision algorithms to accurately analyze visible microplastic particles such as those from beach cleanups and net tows.
SATURNA Imager Features
Highly standardized built-in LED lighting system and calibrated size reference provide consistent and reproducible results for your microplastic samples
Customized computer vision algorithms accurately measure particles and cut hours of analysis time into minutes
Computer pattern recognition and sizing algorithms calculate 13 size metrics and analyze colour for all microplastic particles imaged
