Simple methods using the striped pattern paper marker and FFT (fast Fourier transformation) have been proposed as alternatives to measuring the optical density for determining the level of bacterial growth. The marker-based method can be easily automated, but due to image-processing-base of the method, the presence of light or the color of the culture broth can disturb the detection process. This paper proposes a modified version of marker-FFT-based growth detection that uses a light emitting diode (LED) array as a marker. Since the marker itself can emit the light, the measurements can be performed even when there is no light source or the bacteria are cultured in a large volume of darkly colored broth. In addition, an LED marker can function as a region of interest (ROI) indicator in the image. We expect that the proposed LED-based marker system will allow more robust growth detection compared to conventional methods.
