We present a multimode hyperspectral imaging (HIS) system operating in fluorescence and reflectance modes for food quality and safety applications. The system uses spectral band sequential imaging on the detection side. To ensure constant, high S/N levels, the image acquisition time is optimized for each spectral band. The illumination module uses two independent light sources for fluorescence and reflectance measurements, based on three computer-controlled LED illumination rings. UVA (371 nm, FWHM 16nm, power = 91.7mW/cm²) and blue/violet (418 nm, FWHM = 21nm, power = 38.9mW/cm²) LEDs provide fluorescence excitation. White LEDs (power = 35.8mW/cm²) are used for reflectance. The spectral imaging system incorporated within the detection pathway is able to transition between wavelengths within microseconds over the full bandwidth of the device (450 nm - 800 nm). The system is configured as a tabletop platform with both the illumination and detection located above the food sample. Illumination uniformity is ~90%, spatial resolution is 89μm, and spectral resolution is 8nm.
The system was tested for food safety applications by imaging of pet food spiked with Salmonella enterica, where the ability to identify the bacteria in these samples was compared to existing detection methodologies. As an example of food authentication applications, images captured at 75 wavelengths over the range 450 nm to 810 nm with a 5 nm interval were collected from wild salmon and farmed salmon purchased locally. Wild salmon and farmed salmon were found to have distinctly different reflectance features from 515 nm to 650 nm.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for most presentations.
