Product Description

Counting range

Colony counting - en masse and surface  Colony counting - Spiral    Colony counting - Circle

Pour and surface             Counting of circle plating            Circle                       mode on Ø 55 - 90 mm Petri dishes.  


Accuracy and repeatability

The counting of Petri dishes is long, tedious and can vary from person to person.

The Scan 300 can count up to 1000 colonies in 1 second in a constant and repeatable manner. Counting can be up to 98% accuracy. The minimum colony size is 0.1 mm.

Scan 300 offers multiple export possibilities to save manual input time. It also increases the security and quality of your analyses. Usually, Petri dishes are thrown away after counting and no further verification is possible in the event of a claim. With Scan software, all reports are archived.

Export your results to your PC or archive them in CSV, ExcelTM, OpenOfficeTM, PDF, SCA, BIO format. You can also export images from the camera in JPEG, PNG and BMP format.

Dark Field lighting technology

Thanks to the Dark Field technology and its low lighting, colonies are easy to count. The operator's eyes do not get tired.

Traceability system with DataLink

Ideal with dataLink full traceability system

dataLink is a complete traceability system for the microbiological analysis of a sample, from its plating with easySpiral Pro or easySpiral Dilute platers to colony counting. After incubation, the reading of the datamatrix code makes it possible to collect the information of the sample and its plating and to automatically launch on the colony counter the associated parameters.
