BloomOptix® AI is a machine vision platform capable of detecting, classifying and providing cell counts for cyanobacteria across six genera (Microcystis, Dolichospermum, Aphanizomenon, Woronichinia, Limnoraphis, and Gloeotrichia). With 94% agreement with expert taxonomy, the BloomOptix® AI provides a reliable, unbiased means for anyone to monitor their lake, reservoir or river for cyanobacterial harmful algal blooms (HABs) in the field on in the lab.

To use the BloomOptix® AI, collect a sample of water and plate a few drops onto a microscope slide. Then, image the sample using a 2mm ioLight microscope. Simply upload photos of suspected cyanobacteria via the app and provide field observations, and any other data you collect. The BloomOptix® AI will return cyanobacterial colony IDs and cell counts within seconds of upload. There is also no more need for chain-of-custody forms nor field data sheets, as all data uploaded via the app is can be geolocated, as well as automatically stored and archived for later use.

The BloomOptix® app is a companion app for use with an ioLight microscope (purchased separately) and a subscription to the BloomOptix® AI ecosystem.
