VISION trade show 2018: Genetic and drug research

Machine learning algorithm automatically sorts zebrafish eggs

Research News / September 03, 2018

Zebrafish possess almost all of the same genes we humans do - and that makes their eggs the perfect model organisms for use in genetic and drug research. Previously, samples have had to be prepared manually, which is a very time-consuming task. Now, however, a clever machine learning algorithm will be able to separate and sort the fish eggs automatically. From November 6-8, researchers from the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation IPA will be at the VISION trade show in Stuttgart (Hall 1, Booth G42) to demonstrate how their new solution works in practice.
