Press Release

Paris, October 10th, 2017

ScanStation, real-time incubator and colony counter, innovation award winner 2017, will be presented at MEDICA : real-time revolution in your labs!

Paris, October 10th, 2017 - INTERSCIENCE is pleased to announce the launching of ScanStation, real-time incubator and colony counter at MEDICA in Düsseldorf, Germany (November 16-17, 2017).

The ScanStation is a revolution for microbiological analyses : it detects and counts colonies as soon as they appear at the beginnning of the incubation. It is a real-time revolution providing anticipated results for control quality labs in the pharmaceutical, agro-food, cosmetic industries and research. The anticipated results saves time and allows earlier release of production batches.
«With this new technology, microbiologists can actually see, in real-time, the video of bacterial growth on the Petri dishes. This innovation is a mix between classic methods with the Petri dish and the latest innovations in robotic and computing, providing analyses’ results with unequalled accuracy and much sooner.» says Emmanuel JALENQUES – Head of R&D and Co-CEO of INTERSCIENCE.

The major innovation of the ScanStation is the automatic counting of the colonies at an early stage of their development, starting at the beginning of the incubation cycle. Up to 100 Petri dishes are counted every 30 minutes throughout the process, delivering a video recording of the bacterial growth. Final results are known 3 times sooner and faster because up to 100 Petri dishes are processed simultaneously and with unequalled accuracy as colonies
are detected before clustering or covering can occur.

The ScanStation has been launched at FORUM LABO 2017 in Paris, France. Winner of the 2017 Innovation Trophy Productivity / R.O.I category, it has also been awarded the General Public Award and was then awarded with the label Observeur du Design and the Trophy of the Innovative Companies by CCI / La Montagne.

What’s new about ScanStation?
It is to perform incubation and colony counting at the same time, which allows:
- Colony counting at an early stage of the colony development, starting from 6h of incubation
- Unequalled accuracy of the results as colonies are detected before clustering or covering can occur
- Automatic colony counting during incubation for 100 Petri dishes saving time
- Anticipated results provides earlier release of production batches

Multiple award winner:
- Innovation Award Trophy 2017 (Productivity / R.O.I categories) - Forum Labo, Paris, France
- General Public Award Trophy 2017 - Forum Labo, Paris, France
- Design Observer label 2017- Observeur du Design, Paris, France
- Innovative Companies’ Trophy 2017- CCI / La Montagne, Aurillac, France
