The real-time revolution!

ScanStation is a real-time incubator and colony counting station centralizing incubation, detection and counting of up to 300 Petri dishes simultaneously.

Available models

ScanStation 100 is a unit centralizing incubation, detection and counting of Petri dishes. Colonies are detected & counted as soon as they appear. Follow the growth curve of the colonies.

Real-time incubator and colony counter

100 Petri dishes

ScanStation 100 is a unit centralizing incubation, detection and counting of Petri dishes. Colonies are detected & counted as soon as they appear. Follow the growth curve of the colonies. ScanStation 100 can accommodate up to 100 Petri dishes.

  • Rotating storage carousel capacity: up to 100 Petri dishes (incubated simultaneously in a thermoregulated incubator with Peltier module ± 1°C)
  • Equipped with pressure-sensitive gripper which adapts itself to all Petri dishes
  • Counting on pour plate, surface, Spiral, filtration membranes
  • Petri dish sizes: Ø 55 to 65 mm, Ø 90 mm
  • Reading time in between each dish: 30 min or 1 h
  • Data integrity &Traceability is ensured: Data is archived and accessible till final validation of results (beyond incubation)
  • 21 CFR Part 11 compliance
  • Compatible with datalink system

Applications

The ScanStation, incubator and automatic colony counter, integrated itself into different fields of application. Its flexibility allows it to adapt to any protocol such as bioburden, challenge tests, counting and quality control. Real-time monitoring offers anticipated results for validation.

ScanStation 200 is a unit centralizing incubation, detection and counting of Petri dishes. Colonies are detected & counted as soon as they appear, from the beginning of the incubation.

Key features

  • Accurate (elimination of artifacts) and faster(results in 8h instead if 24 h)
  • Real time bacterial growth count: 5-megapixel ultra-HD camera detects colonies as soon as they appear before clustering or covering can occur, while dissociating the artefacts.
  • Accuracy of incubation temperature: ± 1°C
  • Robotic arm transfers the Petri dishes from the carousel to the camera to perform a time-lapse photography
  • Scan Station is equipped with a pressure-sensitive gripper which adapts itself to all petri dishes
  • 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 enable to visualize the beginning of the growth of micro-organisms such as molds in order to facilitate counting.
  • Data can be recovered beyond incubation date.
  • 21 CFR Part 11 compliance
  • Mono or Multi-batch
