Automated Parasite Analysis. Digital Trichinella Control.
TAGARNO has developed an integrated solution that helps the food industry perform accurate and precise inspection of trichinella parasite in pork meat. The new solution provides excellent image quality with no interference or delay between what is happening under the trichinoscope and what is shown on the monitor. This makes it easy for the operator to examine a sample and create high quality documentation if needed. The Trichinoscope is also a very user friendly and efficient solution that live scans the entire sample in a predefined and systematic way.
The digital Trichinoscope solution includes the trichinoscope, a motorized XY table and the software application that connects everything together.
How does it work?
When using the Trichinoscope app that controls the motorized XY table, the Trichinoscope displays the sample on the connected monitor, allowing for easy and ergonomic inspection of a sample. After installing and calibrating the Trichinoscope as instructed in the manual, place the specifically developed larval counting basin under the microscope. With an attached mouse or XPLUS control box, start the motorized XY table to begin scanning the entire sample. The XY table moves in predefined stages. This allows the operator to carefully inspect the sample and check for trichinella parasite in an efficient and systematic way.
The table can easily be paused to zoom in between the stages for a closer inspection of the sample. To do so, the user simply clicks on the specific area on the monitor with the mouse. Once ready, the inspection can easily be resumed from the point of pause with one of the control options.
After each stage, the XY table will pause to allow the operator to rest their eyes. Once ready, the operator can start the next live scan stage with the mouse or control box. The table will move in stages until the end, ensuring that the entire sample is inspected.
The documentation feature is another benefit of the TAGARNO Trichinoscope. Simply press the Image capture button on the XPLUS control box to document the inspection. The image can then be forwarded to colleagues or supply chain partners if needed.
