Replacing CFU Counts with Single Bacterial Cell Detection

Replacing CFU counts with single bacterial cell detection.

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

Innovations for Increased Counting Accuracy:

Uniform distribution and immobilisationbefore and after centrifugation The QUANTOM Centrifuge evenly distributes the cells along a single plane for accurate detection and QUANTOM™ Cell Loading Buffer I immobilises cells within the medium.

Bacteria specific declustering

declustering The QUANTOM Tx has a novel detection and declustering algorithm that can accurately count individual bacterial cells in tight clusters or long chains.
