The Swiss Federal Office of Meteorology and Climatology, MeteoSwiss, recently completed the successful proof of concept phase for the new Swiss automatic pollen monitoring network, which is being developed in collaboration with Swisens. The Swisens Poleno, which is based on holographic image recognition, enables bioaerosols to be counted and identified in real time. "The proof-of-concept did not only focus on pollen measurement, but also evaluated data management and data security to ensure seamless integration into MeteoSwiss' surface monitoring networks", reveals Dr. Benoît Crouzy, scientist and project manager for the automated Swiss pollen monitoring network at MeteoSwiss.
Swisens convinced MeteoSwiss in the worldwide tender. Our company prevailed against established competitors. We have thus demonstrated our claim to technological leadership and reached an important milestone in the company's development. MeteoSwiss has thus taken on a pioneering role globally in the field of automatic pollen measurement.
We are pleased to announce the launch of our brand new Swisens Poleno flow cytometer for automated pollen analysis. A summary of the instrument features can be found on the product page. Details are not currently published online, but are available on request. If you are interested in further information, please use our contact form or send us an e-mail.
