⛔Stop manual counting!


In your insect factory or farm, production is done manually by human operators.

In some cases, they operate at only one stage of insect growth. In other cases, they control all stages of development: from neonate hatching, through pupation to the adult stage.

About ten times a day, these operators count, check and analyze samples where larvae are sometimes agglomerated together. Making the task more difficult.

Obviously, after several counts of larvae measuring a few millimeters (even with magnifying equipment), the brain gets tired and the margins of error increase.

So you think about how to help your teams in their daily work:

  • How can you make their job easier?
  • How can you make sure that performance doesn't decrease with each analysis?


Unsuccessful search for solutions


You have started your research, but you realize that there is a lack of companies capable of providing solutions in your market.

The only few solutions you have discovered are:

  • Too complicated to set up
  • Incompatible with your tools
  • Not repeatable on several stations
  • Not scalable
  • Not innovative enough


💡Ideally, you would like to:


  • Find a simple and efficient device that would count for your employees.
  • Allow your employees to focus on higher value tasks.
  • Use a solution that works with your current organization and could evolve and be embedded in your future industrial processes.

Good news, we have the solution! ✅


#1 Control every step of your insects' growth with our automatic counting solution

Our counting solution can be used at all stages of development: from neonates under 2 mm to adults.

  • You can control every step of the production process quickly, accurately and consistently.
  • Cloud-hosted counting solutions are available quickly for sample checks.
  • Our solutions can also be embedded directly on your production lines after training our neural networks and an integration step.

#2 What can you expect from your business?

Speed in data processing 

Accelerate dramatically your production control and quality control .
Artificial Intelligence counts the larvae very quickly even when they are agglomerated in clusters.
* Data from a customer case on a sample of 150 larvae. Data transfer time included..

High value-added operations

Valorize the expertise of your employees with higher value-added tasks.

The time saved and the data generated by our solutions will allow your employees to perform valuable analyses to manage production.
* Data from a customer case (10 counts per day of production)








#3 Proven results

More than 430 hours saved per year, the equivalent of 9.5 weeks of work by an operator
Analyses calculated on the basis of 218 days worked per year, with 10 counts per day and 12 minutes per count.


#4 A scalable solution adapted to your production tools

The Dilepix cloud-hosted solution analyzes images captured by a single camera in seconds and sends the results to a Dilepix interface or directly to your SCADA.

Our solutions can also be embedded directly on your production lines to control robotic actions.

#6 Why should you use our counting solution for industrial insect production?

This counting solution allows samples of several hundred larvae to be counted in a few seconds, even when they are clustered together.

Counting with our counting solution is fast, accurate and performances remain constant at any time of the day. This consistency, combined with unlimited repeatability, allows our customers to get reliable data from multiple production lines, or even several plants to analyze in detail the performance of their production tool.

Case study of automatic counting of tenebrio molitor.

HubSpot Video



In this video clip, larvae of tenebrio molitor are placed in a tank commonly used in industrial insect rearing.

In this case, the sensor is placed above the rearing tank to perform acquisitions. The samples are distributed in the tank in order to minimize the coverage of the larvae by their substrate.

It only takes a few seconds for our counting solution to estimate the number of larvae present in the tank.
