Colony counters offered by Microbiology International are the most advanced available. Our ProtoCOL 3 automated colony counters are equipped with a unique detection system, a powerful software and digital camera control, as well as LED illumination. ProtoCOL 3 colony counters come standard with a built in computer, minimizing the foot print on the lab bench compared to other colony counters available. There are several software modules to suit almost any application requirement. The ProtoCOL 3 colony counters will count accurately and reliably; image and information regarding the counts are stored securely in a database. Our cost-efficient colony counter, the aCOLyte 3, connects directly to an already existing computer and is suitable for basic bacterial enumeration on standard Petri plates. This colony counter is a must have for labs on a budget that demand the accuracy, repeatability and consistency achieved through use of an automatic colony counter.
