By incorporating traditional methods of harmful algal bloom (HAB) monitoring and bolstering them with innovative solutions, BloomOptix assists clients’ understanding of their waterbodies through a suite of analyses of various data sources. One such resource is a patent-pending AI-powered microscopy tool that, with minimal training, enables clients to monitor their waterways for HAB-causing cyanobacteria, producing timely and actionable data in as little as 30 seconds.

Typical monitoring methods for algal blooms range from heavy reliance on crude, naked-eye observations and sighting reports, to lab analyses that require expensive instruments and shipping samples to certified labs. These methods can result in false positives, leading to unnecessary interventions (e.g., beach closures, use of advanced water treatment) or multi-day lag times.

Using an easy-to-use iOS app interface (Android coming soon), BloomOptix AI provides the means to automatically identify and count cyanobacterial cells belonging to six of the most common HAB producing genera: Microcystis, Dolichospermum, Aphanizomenon, Woronichinia, Limnoraphis, and Gloeotrichia.

By teaming up with our partners at ioLight, BloomOptix AI replaces the need for expensive equipment with a low-cost, mobile device compatible microscope, providing more data than sensors or traditional microscopes alone. Perhaps most importantly, all sample and field data uploaded to the BloomOptix app is geolocated, linked with weather data, and databased, ensuring you never lose another datapoint nor have to fill out a field data sheet again.
