Applications

PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRIES
- Sterile room monitoring
The Scan® 4000 enables the reading and recording of air samples for bacteriological control of sterile rooms.
With Scan ® 4000, you have complete traceability on your air quality. Your clients will be really satisfied about it!
The integrated management in the CFR part 11 V8 software enables more security and flexibility.

- Antibiotics efficiency measurement
During antibiotics manufacture, it is necessary to compare the efficiency of the antibiotic with a reference.
Scan® 4000 enables the reading of inhibition zones, with peni-cylinders, without peni-cylinders or agar well.

MEDICAL AND VETERINARY INDUSTRIES
- Antibiotics sensitivity
For bacteriological labs, hospitals and clinic, the use of Scan® 4000 reads up to 12 paper disks on round dishes and 16 paper disks on square dishes.
You can memorize your masks and analyze your dish in a few seconds.
The result of the sensitivity in contact with the antibiotic is quick and the visualization of the results is simple:
- Red: resistant
- Yellow: intermediary
- Green: sensitive

The color image of the Petri dish is HD.

FOOD INDUSTRIES
- Quality control
For food instries, during microbiological analyses, the counting step is capital.
Scan® 4000 count colonies with results’ export and guarantee of traceability on all media used in labs. Get instant results and traceability on Petri dishes (55-150 mm), Spiral® plated dishes, PetriFilm™, RIDA™ Count, Compact Dry™ and filtration membranes.

F.A.Q

What are the supports read by Scan® 4000 ?
Scan® 4000 reads :
Round Petri dishes of ø 90, ø 100, ø 150 mm
Square Petri dishes of 120 mm
Chromogenic media culture
PetriFilmTM
RIDATM Count
Compact DryTM
Filtration membranes

What is the minimum detected size of the colony?
- The colony’s minimum size is 0.05 mm.

Does Scan® 4000 read colonies on dark agar ?
- Scan® 4000 is equipped with a lighting system from the bottom and the top and enables 6 combinations of lighting. It adapts itself to any kind of agar, light or dark.

What is the traceability offered by Scan® 4000 ?
- The Scan® offer multiple ways of data export to save time and increase the security and the quality of the analyses. After counting the dishes are thrown away and checking is thus not possible in case of a disagreement. With a Scan® , if you have any doubts, you stil have the pdf and the photo of the dish before/after counting to check again the result and hand it to your client or supervisor.

Is the results’ export to Excel™ possible?
- The Scan® software records automatically all results and exports them towards ExcelTM as well as photos.
You can consult the results and recount at any time. The transfer of the results to ExcelTM is an aspect which is greatly appreciated by the labs. A printed version is available via the Scan® software.

Does Scan® 4000 make automatic reading of the dish?
- The lighting and contrast settings are automatic and the Scan® 4000 adapts itself automatically to any kind of agar.
You can also customize your settings according to the type of agar you are using.

Is Scan® 4000 adapted to pharmaceutical industries ?
- The Scan 4000 allows the reading and recording of air samples dishes for bacteriological control of sterile rooms.
With Scan 4000 you have complete traceability on your air quality. Your auditors will be happy! The integrated management in the CFR part 11 V8 software enables more security and flexibility.

Is Scan® 4000 adapted to medical and veterinary industries ?
- For bacteriological labs, hospitals and clinics, the use of Scan 4000 allows you to read up to 12 paper disks on round dishes and 16 paper disks on square dishes.
You can memorize your masks and analyze your dish in a few seconds. The result of the sensitivity in contact is quick and the visualization of the result is simple:
- Red : resistant
- Yellow : intermediary
- Green : sensitive
The color image of the Petri dish is automatically saved in HD quality.

How much time-saving is the Scan® 4000 ?
- From 50 Petri dishes per day you can hope to reduce your reading time by 80%. The Scan® can count up to 1000 colonies in 1 second !

Does the software exist in several languages ?
- The Scan® software is today available in english, french, spanish, chinese, japanese and russian. Its user-friendliness makes it a worldwide success.

Does Scan® 4000 require a lot of maintenance ?
- No, it is a unit which needs almost no maintenance. The lighting by long-lasting LED gives great flexibility and duration.

Can I read chromogenic dishes ?
- Yes, the Scan® 4000 offers colony counting per colour, up to 7 colours on the same dish for the quick and efficient reading of chromogenic dishes.

Can the software adapts itself to my LIMS ?
- Yes, entirely developped by INTERSCIENCE’s R&D department, we can adapt the software to your application.

Does Scan® 4000 include data from CFR21 part 11?
- The Scan software is in compliance with the FDA guidelines, as electronic signatures, audit trail and securing of the results. The management of the operators is now integrated in the software for greater security and user-frienliness. The supervisor can manage the accounts and passwords automatically without having to refer to a system administrator.

Is Scan® 4000 efficient for the analysis of inhibition zones measurement ?
- Yes, Scan® 4000 reads paper disks, agar wells, peni-cylinders. It measures simultaneously the diameter of up to 16 antibiotics and gives immediate diagnosis (Resistant / Intermediary / Sensitive)
