Efficiency

Ref. 436 000

Scan 500 is an automatic colony counter that ensures fast and efficient counting of colonies, including on chromogenic agar. It guarantees excellent reproducibility. The images and results are saved and usable anytime. Scan 500 is also an inhibition zone reader.

  • Minimum size of detected colony: 0.1 mm
  • Camera: 1 megapixel - zoom x 28
  • Counting on Ø 55 - 90 mm round Petri dishes
  • Counting on pour, surface, Spiral, circle mode plated Petri dishes
  • Counting on chromogenic agar
  • Inhibition zone reader

Presentation

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


Colony counting - Spiral

Spiral

 

Counting of Spiral plating mode on Ø 55 - 90 mm Petri dishes


 Colony counting - Circle

Circle

 

Counting of circle plating mode on Ø 55 - 90 mm Petri dishes


 Chromogenics

Chromogenic

 

Detection up to 7 colours on the same dish. The selection of the colour can be set directly on that of the characteristic colony. A slider adjusts the sensitivity. The reading of chromogenic media allows the detection of Salmonella on XLD medium and E.Coli on TBX medium.


Inhibition zone reading - 120 mm square diameter dishes

Inhibition zone

 

Inhibition zone measurement with EUCAST 2020, CA-SFM 2020, CLSI and customizable databases.

Accuracy and repeatability

The counting of Petri dishes is long, tedious and can vary from one person to another.

The Scan 500 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 0.1 mm.


Total flora before and after counting

Before/after counting on total count

Accuracy and repeatability

The counting of Petri dishes is long, tedious and can vary from one person to another. The Scan 500 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 0.1 mm.

 Import data traceability - DataLink

dataLink

Scan 500 connects to the LIMS in bi-directionality and can be connected to the diluter and plater via dataLink traceability system.


 Traceability export data - CSV

CSV

After each approved counting, the Scan 500 automatically saves and exports the counting parameters and results to a CSV file.

 Traceability export data - CSV

CSV

Scan 500 offers multiple export possibilities to save manual input time. It also increases the security and quality of your analyses.

Usually, Petri dishes are thrown away after counting and no further verification is possible in the event of a claim. With Scan 500, all reports are archived.

Export your results to your PC or archive them in CSV, ExcelTM, OpenOfficeTM, PDF, SCA, BIO format. You can also export images from the camera in JPEG, PNG and BMP format.

Print of the results

All data, images, photos and results are exportable in printable reports, sca, pdf, jpg, xls, csv.

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.

Warranty

Scan 500 automatic colony counters have 3-YEAR warranty (parts and labour) just by sending the warranty card back.
