Machine vision: Optical sorting machines use optical-mechanical detectors and mechanical sorters to scan items, usually on a production line to separate out desired and undesired characteristics. Devices also exist to identify individual cells in this manner and sort them out to remove abnormal cells, for instance, from the blood stream or perform diagnostic cell counting.
