Colony Counter

The Interscience ScanStation 100-200-300 is a real-time incubator and colony counting station centralizing incubation, detection and counting of Petri dishes. Colonies are detected & counted as soon as they appear, from the beginning of the incubation. Follow the growth curve of the colonies.

Mono or multi-batch: The loading of Petri dishes can be done at the beginning or during the incubation, with different light or incubation duration settings. For example, you can load 70 contact plates on day 1 for 5 days of incubation. On day 2, add 20 ø 90 mm Petri dishes for 2 days of incubation, and have several batches running together with different settings.

The ScanStation 100 can accommodate 100 Petri dishes, ScanStation 200 can accommodate 200 Petri dishes and ScanStation 300 can accommodate 300 Petri dishes.

  • Counting on pour plate, surface, Spiral, filtration membranes
  • Petri dish sizes: Ø 55 to 65 mm, Ø 90 mm
  • Accuracy of incubation temperature: ± 1°C
  • Reading time in between each dish: 30 min or 1 h for ScanStation 100 and 200
  • Reading time in between each dish: 1 h for ScanStation 300
  • Batchwise settings

Data integrity ScanStation is a breakthrough in data integrity: images and video of the bacterial growth are saved, from the start to the end of the incubation. You can recover the data beyond the incubation date. The bacterial growth video helps validate the results by showing the distinction between a particle and a bacterium, avoiding false positives. Images taken at regular intervals make it possible to visualize the beginning of the growth of micro-organisms such as molds, to facilitate counting. ScanStation software complies with FDA 21 CFR Part 11 guidelines. It allows electronic signatures, audit trails and encrypted data for security reasons. You can assign different users rights depending on the access levels.
