DOT – Colony Counter
Counting colonies with the unaided eye is a slow, tedious, and sight-damaging task. IUL’s colony counter makes this process easier and faster through the use of LED lighting and a high-quality magnifying glass. Any microbiology lab involved in colony counting will find this tool absolutely vital. Petri plates are inserted inside the colony counter where they are properly lit and magnified. Operators can tick detected colonies with a specifically devised marker, meanwhile a digital display increases the total counts. Pointers that can directly contact colonies are also available.
High Quality Magnification: IUL’s DOT Colony Counter has a large 120 mm diameter lens with a DINx2 magnification power.
Pointer Technology: Colonies are counted by directly touching these with a pointer or by marking them on the Petri dish with a felt tip pen.
Adaptable for any plate: Multiple adapters are available: 60 mm, 70 mm, 80 mm, 90 mm,100 mm, 120 mm, and 150 mm.
Import colony counts to PC applications using a USB: Colony counts can be sent to PC applications such as a spreadsheet. Results are sent as standard PC keyboard keystrokes.
Scalable lighting intensities: Bottom light, 4 selectable intensities, On/Off switching powered from the instrument. Upper light (depending of the glass magnifier ordered), On/Off switching powered from the instrument.
