Dark Field lighting technology

Thanks to the Dark Field technology and its low lighting, colonies are easy to count. The operator does not tire his eyes.

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.
