Software for studying bacterial colony features
Software for studying bacterial colony features: Optical forward-scattering systems supported by image analysis methods are increasingly being used for rapid identification of bacterial colonies. The conventional detection and identification of bacterial colonies comprises a variety of methodologies based on biochemical, serological or DNA/RNA characterization. Such methods involve laborious and time-consuming procedures in order to achieve confirmatory results. The software (ζ-Bidens) was programmed using C++, Perl and wxBasic programming languages. ζ-Bidens provides key tools for studying bacterial colony images as: texture analysis, invariant moment and color (CIELab) calculation, etc., simplifying operations previously carried out by MatLab applications. Additionally ζ-Bidens offers to the users a versatile environment for the study and identification of bacterial colonies
