Synbiosis’ new automated colony counting and chromogenic identification system, Protos 3, allows walk-away colony counts, as well as accurate identification of colonies cultured on chromogenic plates.
It can count colonies in seconds and identify microbial species by their colour on chromogenic plates. This is a great time saver, providing accurate, objective and fully traceable GLP compliant results.
The Protos 3, which comes in bright red, attachesto a computer and requires minimal training to set up. Users simply input their plate identification and click. The Protos 3, featuring a highly sensitive CCD camera combined with three colour LED lighting, rapidly images an infinite number of colony colours on one plate and detects colonies as small as 0.043mm.
The Protos 3’s software then generates true to life counts and plate images, which can be transferred and stored in Excel. This GLP compliant process, with its full audit trail eliminates keying and image transfer errors providing accurate, objective data, which can be reviewed anywhere and anytime.
