Delivery of new SPC system to NOAA Southwest Fisheries Science Center

Last week Eric Orenstein delivered a new build of the SPC system to Eric Danner’s group at the NOAA Southwest Fisheries Science Center in Santa Cruz, CA. This new build incorporates larger optics to yield a 0.5 L imaged volume, a brightfield illumination to work well even in turbid river and estuary waters, and a custom flow chamber to allow drift nets, pumps, and other methods to collect plankton and pipe them through the imaged volume. More details about the new system can be found on the research page: SPC NOAA Fisheries

Delivery of new SPC system to Prince William Sound Science Center in Cordova, AK

Last week we delivered a brand new build of our SPC system to Rob Campbell at the Prince William Sound Science Center in Cordova, Alaska. The new build features a much larger imaged volume, a new method for attaching the strobe housing to the camera housing, all new electronics including a faster ODROID processor with 8 cores at 2 GHz, and a revised version of our real time object detection software. More details about the system and its application in Rob’s profiling mooring are available on the research projects page: SPC Prince William Sound Science Center
