Development of Automated Pollen Counting System

Pollen allergies affect quality of life and respiratory health. Climate change is impacting the amount of pollen in the environment. The study objective is to develop a sampling instrument that will automatically collect, identify, and count airborne pollens for clinicians and scientists. The challenge will be to develop a reasonably priced instrument, of compact size, which can operate reliably and independently for many days. The system must differentiate pollen from other dust, correctly identify, classify and count by type the number of pollen particles in air with good precision for all common pollen types.
