Fast and Accurate Sample Counting with the New Scienceware® Colony Counter

The Scienceware® Colony Counter provides a cost effective and accurate way to count colonies of bacteria or other microorganisms grown on an agar plate.

“Although the latest advances in colony counters have been towards automated and robotic systems, there still remains a need for accurate, simple to use and lower cost hand held units,” says Laura Geenen, Product Manager for Bel-Art Products. “For labs who do counting on an irregular basis or only count a few plates at a time, the expense of investing space and dollars in a larger system is probably not warranted when a hand-held unit like our new Scienceware® model can efficiently and accurately get the task done.”

The Scienceware® Colony Counter is a simple to operate device that marks, counts, and gives an audible and visual alert each time a count is registered on the digital display. The lightweight, comfortable to hold, pen-style design reduces the likelihood of error, combining all aspects of counting into one motion. Error is further reduced by the ability to count both up and down to verify sample counts.

Able to store up to 35 sample counts in its memory, it can also display the sum total of all colonies counted. The display has a backlight for easy viewing in low light conditions; the audible alert can be turned off if desired; and the counting function can be locked to prevent error during breaks between counting.

Long life, red and black felt-tip markers, a protective storage case and a 3V lithium battery are included. Also available is a complete counting system that includes the new Colony Counter, a magnifier, light box, AC adapter, and counting grid.
