Automatic colony counter
Ref. 436 000
Scan 500 is an automatic colony counter that ensures fast and efficient counting of colonies, including on chromogenic agar. It guarantees excellent reproducibility. The images and results are saved and usable anytime. Scan 500 is also an inhibition zone reader.
- Minimum size of detected colony: 0.1 mm
- Camera: 1 megapixel - zoom x 28
- Counting on Ø 55 - 90 mm round Petri dishes
- Counting on pour, surface, Spiral, circle mode plated Petri dishes
- Counting on chromogenic agar
Pour and surface
Counting of pour and surface plating mode on Ø 55 - 90 mm Petri dishes
Counting of Spiral plating mode on Ø 55 - 90 mm Petri dishes
Counting of circle plating mode on Ø 55 - 90 mm Petri dishes
Detection up to 7 colours on the same dish. The selection of the colour can be set directly on that of the characteristic colony. A slider adjusts the sensitivity. The reading of chromogenic media allows the detection of Salmonella on XLD medium and E.Coli on TBX medium.
Inhibition zone measurement with EUCAST 2020, CA-SFM 2020, CLSI and customizable databases.
