Automatic Pathologies Analysis System: APAS


ALCI Advanced Vision Analysis Technologies brought the APAS System.

APAS is a Phytopathometry System providing a rapid measurement of the diseases using multispectral analysis. APAS algorithms are based on and validated with pathologist expertise.

APAS provides reliable, reproducible and cost effective controls based on:

  • Quantification of sporulation and necrosis on plantlets or patches,
  • Determination of the percentage of disease by surface,
  • Resistance quantification.

APAS: Features and Advantages


APAS uses the following technologies:

-A multispectral vision system dedicated to the identification of the necrosis and sporulation
-An Expert System (software oriented with Artificial Intelligence) customizing the analysis protocols performed currently by the experts (pathologist)

-A touch screen as the human-machine interface to monitor and to operate it

Functional Advantages:

-APAS standardizes your analysis process.

-APAS produces reliable and reproducible datas; classifies the crop resistance in different categories, according to your requests.

- APAS records (SQL Data base) and classifies all the datas at plantlets /patches level,

- APAS assures the traceability by tracking each box with plantlets or patches

-APAS provides a customizable output file or can be connected directly to your lims system (using SQL).

-APAS has a ‘Remote maintenance and diagnostic’ module allowing automatic upgrade in case of new developments.

Safe and simple utilization:

-0% of risk on injuring operators or machine degradation as APAS is CE certified.

-APAS is easily commanded by a touch screen command board, there is 0% need to adapt, your operators will understand the Sampling Automation System immediately.

-APAS has different access levels for operators, managers, maintenance, quality control.

Economic advantages

-APAS (with stackers) can work more than one day of work.

-APAS allows you to increase significatively your analysis (25s per box with 60 plantlets or patches); to do in one day the same number of analysis that one person does in three days

-APAS boosts your ROI with powerful simplicity when implementing high throughput analysis.
