Ref. 438 000
Scan 4000 is an automatic HD colour colony counter. It is adapted to all sizes of Petri dishes and any culture media. Its indirect lighting system gives great user comfort, high accuracy and excellent reproducibility.
The Scan 4000 allows reading on Petri dishes of up to 150 mm diameter, and on square Petri dishes of 120 mm. This makes it the colony counter with the most possibilities on the market, for more flexibility in your work.

The counting of Petri dishes is long, tedious and can vary from one person to another. The Scan 4000 can count up to 1000 colonies in 1 second in a constant and repeatable mode. Counting accuracy reach up to 98%. The minimum colony size is 0.05 mm.

The Scan software responds to FDA recommendations, including electronic signatures, audit trails, and security of results. User account management is integrated into the software. The supervisor can manage accounts and passwords directly, without always calling on the network administrator.
Scan 4000 connects to the LIMS in bi-directionality and can be connected to the diluter and plater via dataLink traceability system.
All data, images, photos and results are exportable in printable reports, sca, pdf, jpg, xls, csv.
Printed report example
Petri dishes are difficult to lighten as they are transparent and reflective. Heterogeneous lighting creates artefacts on the edge of the agar and on the sides of the Petri dish. These artefacts may be counted as colonies and can ruin an accurate counting.
We have designed a white diffusing dome for 360° lighting without reflections or shadows. The lighting is spread evenly everywhere and allows you to count the colonies on the entire surface.
Equipped with a German 5 megapixels camera and a Japanese lens, the Scan 4000 offers the best image quality of the interscience range. See details you would not see with your bare eye!
Place the Petri dish where you want, the Scan 4000 automatically detects it and zooms on it. You can count on 100% of the surface of the Petri dish and avoid missing a colony nestled on the meniscus agar.
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.
Scan 4000 automatic colony counters have 3-YEAR warranty (parts and labour) just by sending the warranty card back.
The Scan 4000 colony counter is used in the food, environmental, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, veterinary and public institutes research.
