Toxic, behavior, chemical, nematode and image processing system.
Toxic Response behavior of nematode by exposure toxic chemicals is assessed using automatic recognition of line movement through image processing system under the microscope. The nematode Caenorhabditis elegans was exposed in different toxic chemicals to determine the toxic response. Toxicity of formaldehyde, benzene and toluene might affect on the movement behavior of nematodes. Toxic response behavior of nematode in three toxic chemicals have found to be similar. This study is identified some sequential line-movements of nematode that could be used as an alternative tool for the real-time monitoring of toxic substances in aquatic ecosystems in the future.
