Real-time incubator and colony counter

1 incubator of 100 Petri dishes
+ 1 robotic arm transfers the Petri dishes
+ 1 automatic ultra-HD colony counter

- 100 Petri dishes are counted every 30 minutes throughout the process. Colonies are detected and counted as soon as they appear


- Sooner: Detection of the colonies is made at an early stage of their development so the result is known 3 x sooner than with traditional methods, for example 8h instead of 24h. 
- Faster : 100 Petri dishes are processed simultaneously: colony counting is done automatically during incubation.
- Accurate : Colonies are detected before clustering or covering can occur, and are differenciated from writings and debris.



- Anticipated results: Automation of colony counting during incubation saves time and allows earlier release of production batches.
- Real-time control: discover bacterial growth hour-by-hour and see the video during and after incubation with zoom, pause and replay features…
- Zoom : zoom directly on the image to check the state of the colonies and closely study their development.

- Full traceability: data is archived and available throughout incubation up to final validation of the results.

- Robotic architecture: The incubator includes a robotic architecture with a 100 Petri dishes carousel, an ultra rigid robotic arm for more accuracy and durability and an ultra-HD automatic colony counter.
- Pressure sensitive gripper: This high precision gripper fits to the Petri dishes rightside or upside down, grabs them from the carousel and moves them to the image capture zone every 30 minutes.
- Incubator with Peltier effect: Peltier modules allow a temperature regulation of ± 1 °C, low energy consumption, no fluid nor compressor.
- Ultra HD image: With white LED lighting and 5 million pixels, ultra HD camera enables accurate counting and detection of the colonies from their early development.
- Touch screen interface: Makes it easier to navigate through the software and gives real time access to the Petri dish data.
- Multibatch : The loading of Petri dishes can be done at the beginning or during the incubation. Petri dish batches can be added at any point during the process.
