Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2004, $214,629)
This project focuses on off-the-shelf hardware and modifications of software to develop an automated sperm search system. The system would allow the analyst to load multiple slides into the device for unattended analysis. Verification of the computer identified sperm could be performed through the inspection of captured images or through a computer driven directed review of the slide. The system would consist of a microscope, a computer driven stage that accepts multiple slides, a video system to import images into a computer, and software to drive the stage and interpret images.
