Improve detection of microbes

asked 2016-12-07 09:33:01 -0500

Hello. I am currently working on a project that will detect microbes in a low contrast image. My problem is that unimportant parts of the image is also detected. What can I do to improve the detection capacity. I have here is the actual sample image. I have to detect those tiny yellowish white microbes and to not detect those little black shadowsimage description

You kinda have answered by yourself: yellowish is that what we need and black shadows should be removed. Now you have to add a filter (that will calculate mean color of the object and compare this value with a threshold) and apply it to the each object that your detector finds.

As a side note, you could also try Fiji to test which algorithm would suit for your task.

I am not very familiar with Fiji. Can I do programming there?

can you suggest me a good filter algorithm @pi-null-mezon?
