From the Cell Wellbeing website regarding the S Drive Hair Scanner
The CWBCE-1320 is a cell profiler used to observe the resonant frequencies of specimens.
The equipment is powered from a single USB connection to an external computer which runs software that collates specimen information; and the data provided by the cell profiler.
The cell profiler generates a magnetic field that grows in the coil and grows in the field (low field).
Different specimens affect differently the fields (growing/decaying), the resonant medium of microactivity is then assessed by a bio-information centre against relevant and data stored indicators, for example organic/biological and returned to the sender.”
