If you’re looking for colony counters for use in food, environmental, pharmaceutical, veterinary and clinical laboratories, Synbiosis has a full range of easy to use systems. We offer the aCOLyte 3 HD colony counter for automated colony counting of standard plates (up to 90mm). For plate sizes up to 150mm, we have the ProtoCOL 3 and Protos 3 colony counters. The aCOLyte 3 HD is ideal for TVC (Total Viable Count) of microbes in food and environmental samples. The ProtoCOL 3, Protos 3 and ProcScan are suited to a wider range of applications including pharmaceutical analysis such as the AMES test, SBA (serum bactericidal assay) and OPKA (opsonophagocytic killing assay).

The aCOLyte 3 HD, ProtoCOL 3 and Protos 3 colony counters all use sensitive CCD cameras and LED lighting coupled with powerful analysis software. To count colonies on larger plates, we have the ProcScan scanner that can work with plates of up to 300mm x 300mm.

Using the ProcScan you can scan plate images and analyse them using a ProtoCOL 3 or a PC running the ProtoCOL 3 software, making this perfect if, for example, you’re using large AMES test plates in pharmaceutical laboratories.

The aCOLyte 3 HD, ProtoCOL 3, Protos 3 and ProcScan can analyse pour, spread and spiral plates generating stunning full-colour plate images, rapidly providing you with objective, accurate total viable counts. You can export data directly to Excel and other software packages to avoid keying errors, guaranteeing precise GLP compliant reporting and full data traceability.

For manual colony counting of 50mm or 90mm plates, the aCOLade 2 colony counter is ideal. Consisting of an illuminated receiver plate and large LED display, you mark a colony with a felt-tip pen, your count is confirmed by an audible tone which can be turned off when necessary. Total counts are quickly registered on your aCOLade 2’s digital display, making this colony counter a great choice if you’re counting microbes for TVC in food and environmental samples.
