ScanStation® 2021 New Features

“After installing more than 50 ScanStation® in 12 different countries, we have identified several areas for improvement after intensive discussions with our customers, particularly in the pharmaceutical sector. Today, we are pleased to be able to offer today improved counting accuracy and user-friendliness with ScanStation®. Real-time microbiological analysis allows for better production management, which is key for many industries.”
Jules Jalenques, CEO

What's new?

Telecentric lens for upgraded counting accuracy.
The high-performance telecentric lens allows the Petri dish to be viewed in an absolute vertical position, without perspective distortion. The surface area around the edge of the dish, where the agar meniscus makes counting more difficult, is reduced. By reducing this area from 9 % to 5 % of the total surface of the Petri dish, counting performance increases. Typical counting accuracy increases from 95 % to 97.5 %. This is crucial for the pharmaceutical industry, where a colony on the edge of the dish can make the difference between a positive or negative result, especially in the monitoring of air quality in clean rooms. This new feature is standard on the ScanStation® 300 model.

Central screen for optimized ergonomics for your laboratory
The central screen reduces the ScanStation’s side space requirement. The linear space required is reduced from 245 cm to 175 cm compared to a ScanStation® with a side screen and keyboard support. This is an attractive option for our customers looking to couple multiple ScanStation® in their lab. This accessory is available on all ScanStation® range: ScanStation® 100, ScanStation® 200 and ScanStation® 300.

Removable petals: easy to clean and disinfect
To facilitate access to the bottom of the carousel, the 5-petal blocks removable can be removed by pulling on it, using a magnetic connection, so that the surface below the carousel can be cleaned easily. This makes 100 % of the ScanStation® floor area easily accessible and cleanable. This new feature is standard on the entire ScanStation® range: ScanStation® 100, ScanStation® 200 and ScanStation® 300.

What is ScanStation®?
ScanStation® provides automatic counting of the colonies at an early stage of their development, starting at the beginning of the incubation cycle:

  • Up to 100, 200 or 300 Petri dishes are counted every 30 minutes / 1 hour throughout the process, delivering a video recording of the bacterial growth.
  • Unequalled accuracy as colonies are detected before clustering or covering can occur.
  • Final results are known 3 times sooner and faster as all Petri dishes are processed simultaneously
