Robotic microscope about six times faster than a human

The robotic microscope system takes several hundred photographs across an entire air filter sample in under a minute with images uploaded to cloud software and analysed for signs of asbestos.

“For labs there are significant benefits, as Marvin eliminates the manual processing of dangerous minerals and screens air samples for asbestos fibres in a fraction of the time it takes humans,” Mr Gruber said.
