Ball Coleman SeedView


SeedView uses lasers and cameras to measure seedling samples while they are moving through at up to 3.5 cm/second.

Depending on the density of the seedling, it can evaluate up to 13 seedlings/second. A standard seedling tray is scanned in only 36 seconds!


It can evaluate individual germinated seed or seedlings regardless of the media it is sown in or the environmental conditions.

Seeds can be evaluated in soil or blotter media on a grid pattern in standard trays or blotter boxes.


It can be easily configured to meet your needs.

Available options include a base stand and a conveyor system that moves you from a two-person to a single-user operation, saving you time and money.

Cost Effective

This germination testing is objective, reproducible and provides more data than traditional methods.

Saves labor costs for reading germination tests and saves time with remote data evaluation.

How It Works

Fast, Accurate Data Collection

Our state-of-the-art technology and advanced image acquisition and analysis software work together to provide the ultimate in small object counting speed and accuracy.

Small objects fall through a “drop zone” where they are imaged by a high-speed camera 35,000 times/sec, which “sees” the falling objects from two view angles.
