E.g.: Coliforms on VRBL agar incubated at 37°C
From the beginning of the incubation, the 100 Petri dishes are photographed every hour. Colonies are detected and counted as soon as they appear. Discover their bacterial growth hour by hour and get anticipated results.
Colony counting is done automatically during incubation.
You get a video of the bacterial growth in real time.
ScanStation 100 is composed of a rotating storage carousel with a 100 Petri dishes capacity.
The 100 Petri dishes are processed simultaneously in this thermoregulated incubator with Peltier module ± 1°C.
Results in 8 h instead of 24 h
Up to 300 Petri
dishes counted together
Elimination of artefacts
Keep your agar & method
The data are archived and accessible throughout incubation till the final validation of the results.
ScanStation saves images and videos of bacterial growth from the start till the end of the incubation. You can recover the data beyond the incubation date.
The bacterial growth video helps validate the results by showing the distinction between a particle and a bacterium, avoiding false positives. Images taken at regular intervals enable to visualize the beginning of the growth of micro-organisms such as molds in order to facilitate counting.
ScanStation software complies with FDA 21 CFR Part 11 guidelines. It allows electronic signatures, audit trails and encrypted data for security reasons. You can assign different users rights depending on the access levels.
The loading of Petri dishes can be done at the beginning or during the incubation. ScanStation simultaneously processes batches with different light settings or different incubation time.
The integrated barcode reader can read most 1D/2D barcodes on the market, including QR codes and datamatrix.
ScanStation is compatible with Spiral platers and the dataLink system. This will avoid double data entry, a source of error, and save time.
