Title: DEVICE AND METHOD FOR DETECTING AND IMAGING BIOCONTAMINATING ELEMENTS
Abstract:
The invention relates to a device and a method for detecting and imaging biocontaminating elements (BC), comprising a matrix (M) of detecting pixels having an active face (FA) on which a light (L) is incident, a mounting (S) transparent to light which covers the active face (FA) and lighting means (ME) which produce the light (L) that is incident on the active face (FA), and display means (MV). The invention is characterised in that the incident light (L) is the light emitted by the biocontaminating elements (BC) and in that the device also comprises at least a filter (F), a polariser (P) and an analyser (A), said polariser (P) and said analyser (A) being positioned in crossed configuration to avoid speckle in the images.
