Scan 300 is an automatic colony counter that includes the essential features for Petri dish counting. It is specifically adapted to the usual media in food microbiology: PCA, MRS...

  • Minimum size of detected colony: 0.1 mm
  • Camera: 1 megapixel - zoom x 28
  • Couting on round Petri dishes of Ø 55 - 90 mm
  • Counting on pour, surface, Spiral, circle mode plated dishes
  • Language: English, French, Japanese, Chinese, Russian, Spanish, German


Counting range


Colony counting - en masse and surface

Pour and surface


Counting of pour and surface plating 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.

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.
