Abstract:
A method includes, during an agitation period of an agitation profile, applying a motion to a transparent vessel containing a fluid, and while applying the motion; acquiring a sequence of original images of a portion of the transparent vessel; generating a background image from the sequence of original images; generating a resultant image from the background image and an original image in the sequence of original images; and identifying from the resultant image a particle in the fluid.
