Evaluation of the automatic identification and counting system of Ostreopsis ovata cells Working Group activities

This Report describes the activity and results of the Working Group  “Evaluation of the automatic identification and counting system of Ostreopsis ovata cells”. The results were presented on 12th and 13th December 2016, in a workshop organised by ISPRA. The WG was established in June 2016 and the activities involved 14 coastal Environmental Protection Agencies (ARPA) with experts in the field.From June to September 2016, the Environmental Agencies applied an Intercalibration counting protocol for the collection, treatment and analysis of water and macroalgae samples for the research of Ostreopsis ovata cells. All the samples have been counted both by traditional optical microscopy at each ARPA and by automatic opto-electronic method at CNR-IBF in Genoa. The results demonstrate the effectiveness of the innovative automatic method for Ostreopsis ovata identification and counting.
