An automatic system for marine meiobenthos separation was developed by using laser-induced fluorescence technology. rose Bengal was used as organism dye and the spectrums of rose Bengal were measured. Laser-induced fluorescence system was established to detect marine meiobenthos in sediments. Data obtained from experiments were analyzed by using a mathematical model. The results showed that laser-induced fluorescence technology worked well in the system. The system could select the meiobenthos efficiently and precisely.
