Advances in Automated Colony Counting

Colony CounterThe INTERSCIENCE Scan® range of colony counters are now available in the UK from automated imaging experts eikonix Ltd. The industry standard SCAN range have been given a number of new features to make all three models the unit of choice when making the decision to go for automated counting for all your plates.

The level of automatic control has been increased giving even greater ease of use. Now you can customise as many parameters as you want which eliminates complicated batch settings and user input needed by other so called ‘automated’ colony counters.

The SCAN 300, 500 and 1200 series really are designed and built with the user in mind. Models are compatible with the complete range of processes found  in today’s laboratory. They seamlessly work with spiral platers, are compatible with DataLink traceability systems with robotic analysis instruments.

Major upgrades to the image resolution of up to 1 megapixels brings enhanced imaging and high quality images for viewing and printing. Now it is possible to count as small as 0.05mm and get clear separation of the colonies. This makes differentiating between colonies and debris very easy and lets the user see even the smallest of colony. When it comes to low contrast plates such as water samples the SCAN excels, easily beating many of its rivals in head to head tests.

Traceability and performance is assured with all of the SCAN range. Backed up with NF, CFR 21, FDA BAM, AOAC and ISO traceability requirements . A 3 year warranty and free IQ/OQ/PQ documents complete an outstanding specification. UK based, Eikonix, the scientific digital imaging experts offer an unrivalled choice of systems for those working in the fields of gel imaging, colony counting and zone measuring, fluorescence imaging and live cell counting and imaging.
