Prestigious Research Centre Chooses ProtoCOL

ProtoCOL

Synbiosis, a world-leading manufacturer of automated microbiological systems today announced its ProtoCOL automated colony counter is being successfully used by the world renowned Skin Research Centre (SRC) at the University of Leeds to rapidly test the effectiveness of new therapies to treat acne and other skin diseases.

The SRC chose the ProtoCOL because it is flexible enough to quickly generate precise, GLP compliant, automated spiral plate counts of propionibacteria, staphylococci and the yeast, Malassezia furfur, (micro- organisms associated with skin diseases) from a variety of selective media. These counts are then used to determine which treatments are reducing the number of organisms on the skin of those on the trial.
