Manual colony counter

aCOLade 2 colony counter is a reliable, easy-to-use device for rapid manual counting of colonies on any agar in petri dishes.

The new aCOLade 2 manual colony counter is an ideal choice for budget-conscious microbiology laboratories.

It consists of an illuminated receiver plate and a large LED display. The pressure of marking a colony with a felt-tip pen registers a cumulative count on the digital display with confirmation by audible tone (can be turned on or off). The pressure required to register a count can be adjusted to suit each user.

Sub-stage illumination by low energy bright LEDs allows glare-free optimum viewing. A switchable black background is provided to enhance viewing of translucent and difficult to see colonies. Supplied with two graticules and dish centering adapters to facilitate use with 50mm – 90mm dishes. A choice of magnifiers are available as optional accessories.
