Quality Control of Fruit Fly Pupae

The paper explores the quality control of fruit fly pupae, it can be found here.

The image representing the near infrared wavelength of 880 nm clearly distinguished among high-quality pupae and the other four classes (i.e. low-quality pupae, empty pupae, dead pupae and larvae). The blind validation test indicated that the MSI system can classify the fruit fly pupae with high accuracy. Therefore, MSI-based classification of A. fraterculus pupae can be used for future pupal quality assessments of fruit flies in mass-rearing facilities.
