ZooCam imaging sensor - Colas et al. (2017)

|Definition||An in-flow system for on-board imaging of fish eggs and zooplankton. It is designed to digitize and analyse on board large volume samples of preserved and living metazooplankton (i.e. multicellular zooplankton) and fish eggs >300µm equivalent spherical diameter (ESD). The ZooCAM features a fluidic module and an optical/imaging module. The sample is mixed with filtered seawater in the fluidic module, which is connected to a high volume peristaltic pump. The pump drives the seawater and the particles through the tubing to a flow cell were they are imaged. The flow cell is mounted between the camera and the illumination system. The images are captured by a 1280 x 1024 pixel black and white USB 3.0 CCD camera (Thorlabs), on which a telecentric 0.5X lens (Edmund optics) is mounted. The pump flow speed can be manually adjusted between 0.28 l/min and 1.7 l/min.|
