Non-contact height measurement of culture media in Petri dishes

In microbiology, cell cultures are used for the analysis of so-called agar plates. When producing this culture medium, liquid agar-agar is filled into plastic Petri dishes, where it hardens and forms a gel-like, transparent layer. Capacitive displacement sensors from Micro-Epsilon inspect the height of the conductive culture medium with high accuracy.
