The high performance telecentric lens allows the Petri dish to be viewed in an absolute vertical position, without perspective distortion. The surface area around the edge of the dish, where the agar meniscus makes counting more difficult, is reduced. By reducing this area from 9% to 5% of the total surface of the Petri dish, counting performance increases. Typical counting accuracy increases from 95% to 97.5%. This is crucial for the pharmaceutical industry, where a colony on the edge of the dish can make the difference between a positive or negative result, especially in the monitoring of air quality in clean rooms. This new feature is standard on the ScanStation 300 model.
The central screen reduces the ScanStation’s side space requirement. The linear space required is reduced from 245 cm to 175 cm compared to a ScanStation with a side screen and keyboard support. This is an attractive option for our customers looking to couple multiple ScanStations in their lab. This accessory is available on all ScanStation range: ScanStation 100 , ScanStation 200 and ScanStation 300.
To facilitate access to the bottom of the carousel, the 5-petal blocks removable can be removed by pulling on it, using a magnetic connection, so that the surface below the carousel can be cleaned easily. This makes 100% of the ScanStation floor area easily accessible and cleanable. This new feature is standard on the entire ScanStation range: ScanStation 100 , ScanStation 200 and ScanStation 300.
