Description of Innovation: QSorter® technology is at the heart of a new generation of inspection and sorting devices for excellent in seed breeding and processing. The QSorter® devices are able to transport grains one by one in a fixed position and this unique feature allows measuring of biochemical and physical properties with superior accuracy and precision. The QSorter® platforms are very fast and can transport from a few to several thousands of kernels each second. The QSorter® is the result of state-of-the-art mechatronics, NIR spectroscopy, VISION, life science and machine learning technologies.
Why it matters to the seed industry: Solutions are available for ultra-fast seed phenotyping, fraud detection, increase of seed purity and optimization of processing of corn, soybeans, wheat, barley.
