EASY DATA EXPORT
Scan software provides easy ways to export quickly your results:
Work sessions saving
JPEG, BMP export
Results exported to Excel™
Scan printed report
- Sterile room monitoring
The Scan® 4000 enables the reading and recording of air samples for bacteriological control of sterile rooms.
With Scan ® 4000, you have complete traceability on your air quality. Your clients will be really satisfied about it!
The integrated management in the CFR part 11 V8 software enables more security and flexibility.
- Antibiotics efficiency measurement
During antibiotics manufacture, it is necessary to compare the efficiency of the antibiotic with a reference.
Scan® 4000 enables the reading of inhibition zones, with peni-cylinders, without peni-cylinders or agar well.
MEDICAL AND VETERINARY INDUSTRIES
- Antibiotics sensitivity
For bacteriological labs, hospitals and clinic, the use of Scan® 4000 reads up to 12 paper disks on round dishes and 16 paper disks on square dishes.
You can memorize your masks and analyze your dish in a few seconds.
The result of the sensitivity in contact with the antibiotic is quick and the visualization of the results is simple:
The color image of the Petri dish is HD.
- Quality control
For food instries, during microbiological analyses, the counting step is capital.
Scan® 4000 count colonies with results’ export and guarantee of traceability on all media used in labs. Get instant results and traceability on Petri dishes (55-150 mm), Spiral® plated dishes, PetriFilm™, RIDA™ Count, Compact Dry™ and filtration membranes.
What are the supports read by Scan® 4000 ?

Red : resistant
Yellow : intermediary
Green : sensitive
The color image of the Petri dish is automatically saved in HD quality.
How much time-saving is the Scan® 4000 ?

- Yes, entirely developped by INTERSCIENCE’s R&D department, we can adapt the software to your application.
Does Scan® 4000 include data from CFR21 part 11?
- The Scan software is in compliance with the FDA guidelines, as electronic signatures, audit trail and securing of the results. The management of the operators is now integrated in the software for greater security and user-frienliness. The supervisor can manage the accounts and passwords automatically without having to refer to a system administrator.
Is Scan® 4000 efficient for the analysis of inhibition zones measurement ?
Yes, Scan® 4000 reads paper disks, agar wells, peni-cylinders. It measures simultaneously the diameter of up to 16 antibiotics and gives immediate diagnosis (Resistant / Intermediary / Sensitive)
