Count Single Bacterial Cells in Minutes with the QUANTOM Tx™ Microbial Cell Counter


The QUANTOM Tx™ Microbial Cell Counter is an image-based, automated cell counter that can detect individual bacterial cells in minutes, from sample to result. Its novel bacteria-optimized cell detection software can count individual bacterial cells in even the tightest clusters.

As bacteria are an incredibly diverse group of organisms that come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and arrangements, automated cell counting can be a bit of a challenge. The ubiquitous colony counting method is a time-consuming, unreliable estimation at best. Even flow cytometers register each particle, single or clustered, as a single event. Hemocytometers used to directly count bacteria under a microscope are are also time consuming and prone to user-to-user variability.

Count Single Bacterial Cells Automatically Benefits of using the QUANTOM Tx to get real-time assessment of bacterial population:

  • No culturing required - from sample to result in minutes
  • Accurate, objective results - no user-to-user variability, no estimates based on CFU's or turbidity
  • Detect down to one single bacterium - advanced cell counting software will count down to single cell regardless of shape, size or arrangement
  • Choose either total or viable only cell counts - using specific fluorescence stains
