Rapid detection and count of colonies are automated ! (MicroBio µ3D)

MicroBio μ3D


C. alibicns detection

Set plates and start a test !


When you use MicroBio μ3D that is a fully automated rapid microbiological test system, all you have to do is set plates and start a test. The system detects colonies and draws a colony count graph automatically, taking any form of sample plate: streaked plate, poured plate or plate with a filter.


Mold mold colonies spread with hyphae and it is difficult to count, but if the automatic adjustment function is set, mold samples are also automatically tested with the same settings for bacteria.

C alibicns detection


As the examples show, the steady count reached on the graph, (2) on each graph, is the same as comfirmed count, (3) on each graph, so that the steady count is the viable count or standard plate count the system obtains faster than visual count does.
