Imaging samples in liquids

Our coming back to work has been especially interesting this summer of 2020. After finishing digitization of the Tromsø Museum’s vascular plants collection, we have been focusing on a research and development of our mass digitization systems. Up until now we have been carrying out digitization projects for herbarium sheets and pinned insects. However, conveyor-driven mass-digitization of samples in liquids — is that possible? Maybe, if the specimens can be emptied from their vials and placed flat on petri-dishes or similar. We hear that there is demand for such services, so we had to try.
