Ball Coleman SeedView

Fast

SeedView uses lasers and cameras to measure seedling samples while they are moving through at up to 3.5 cm/second.

Depending on the density of the seedling, it can evaluate up to 13 seedlings/second. A standard seedling tray is scanned in only 36 seconds!

Easy

It can be easily configured to meet your needs.

Available options include a base stand and a conveyor system that moves you from a two-person to a single-user operation, saving you time and money.

Flexible

It can evaluate individual germinated seed or seedlings regardless of the media it is sown in or the environmental conditions.

Seeds can be evaluated in soil or blotter media on a grid pattern in standard trays or blotter boxes.

Cost Effective

This germination testing is objective, reproducible and provides more data than traditional methods.

Saves labor costs for reading germination tests and saves time with remote data evaluation.

How it works

Fast, Accurate Data Collection

Seedlings pass by a series of lasers that measure leaf area, height and chlorophyll levels, and then they are run under a pair of RGB cameras to capture high- and low-resolution images. Multiple scans can be made over time to track individual seedling progress.

Image data is collected using state-of-the-art software that allows you to edit and share information. The data collected by the SeedView can then be used to define and classify seed structures, and point out necessary seed structures to determine germination status.

If you’re looking for advanced data collection that saves you time while lowering costs, the SeedView is the perfect solution.
