DropVision® FL (Fluorescence) consists of a specialized high eyepoint compound microscope with a builtin hi-res digital imaging processor, DropVision® Advanced Droplet Image Analysis software, and the DropVision® Graphing & Reporting software. DropVision®FL is designed for the user who samples airborne droplets with Impingers in geographic regions that have background particles that are mistaken for insecticide sampled droplets. Is DropVision® FL more efficient than manually reading slides?
Reading slides manually may take up to thirty minutes for a complete analysis of two hundred (200) drops. DropVision® FL reads two thousand droplets (2,000), produces graphs, and robust reports at an average rate of thirty seconds, depending on the droplet densities on the slides.
Does DropVision® FL analyze and report the requirements of the new EPA labels?
Yes. DropVision® FL provides the user with the new and current label language requirement standards. DropVision® FL specifically incorporates DV.1, DV.5, DV.9 droplet densities per millimeter squared and relative span.
Does DropVision® FL analyze more than one slide?
Yes. DropVision® FL accommodates a single slide analysis or an unlimited number of slides and locations. This makes DropVision® FL very unique and capable of analyzing a slide for a single ULV fogger or aircraft calibration or a complex network of droplet measuring stations in a wide area ULV ground or aerial application.
How accurate is DropVision® FL?
Statistical analysis of DropVision® FL compared to the conventional human eye-read and analyzed measurements demonstrated comparable results. It should be noted that DropVision® FL, through the proprietary image analysis algorithms, measures droplet sizes as small as one pixel (as small as a .5 micron using the 4x ocular). This advanced and unmatched measuring technique produces a more precise and accurate measurement of droplet sizes as compared to conventional methods.
