Automated colony counting advances

6th July 2015

The SCAN range of counters from Eikonix have been given a number of new features to make the three models the unit of choice when making the decision to go for automated counting for colonies.

The level of automatic control has been increased, giving the user a greater feel of comfort. Now the user can customise as many parameters a they want, which eliminates all the complicated batch settings and user input needed by other so called ‘automated’ colony counters.

The SCAN300, 500 and 1200 series are designed and built with the user in mind. Models are compatible with the complete range of processes in today’s laboratory. They seamlessly work with spiral platers, are compatible with DataLink traceability systems and are compatible with robotic analysis chains.

Major upgrades to the image resolution 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 aids reading between colonies and debris and lets the user see even the smallest of colony. When it comes to low contrast plates such as water samples the SCAN excels.
