New Petri Dish Imaging System

Don Whitley Scientific Limited (DWS) has launched a new Petri dish imaging system which fits inside a workstation so that plates can be photographed during incubation without having to remove them from the workstation environment. The Whitley Petrifoto System features a Canon compact digital camera with auto focus, a wide angle zoom lens and a 12.1 megapixel high resolution sensor, all designed to elicit good quality images from even the most amateur of photographers.

The robust unit is small enough to pass through a workstation airlock so can be moved in and out of a workstation when required. The innovative lighting system - a 3D light box fitted with multiple daylight colour temperature LEDs for realistic colour rendition - has underside and side lighting, which can be controlled independently. This means it is suitable for all agar and colony types.

The Whitley Petrifoto System comes with an SD memory card and is compatible with Eye-Fi wireless memory cards to allow automatic image transmission to an external PC or MAC.
