q fossil > Maceral Analysis

The maceral analysis is an additional module of FOSSIL. With an automated stage it replaces the 'pointer counter'.

How does it work?

  • To initialise the stage, you enter the parameters: number of position vertical, horizontal, and the distance to the next position.
  • The stage moves to the first position, and the camera shows the live image in full resolution.
  • The image center is marked with a cross.
  • Choose the appropriate constituent from the list on the left side.
  • The stage moves automatically to the next position ...

The result of the maceral analysis is shown on the screen, and can be printed in a report.
