Speck counter app

Count speck and bran instantly

From yesterday’s manual counting of specks, relying on the human eye, this application now automatically counts specks and bran in any sample, such as flour. Making it effortless to evaluate the quality of the sample, this piece of software, which goes with a digital microscope, is designed to take the subjectivity out of the analysis and introduce an objective take.

The operators simply place the sample under the microscope and click to run the analysis. They usually do not need adjust the settings – such as choosing the minimum size of the speck or adjusting the lightness filter – because they did this the first time, and then saved all the settings as a template that can easily be recalled. Instead, one click is all it takes to count every single speck.

How does it work?
