ScanStation real-time incubator and colony counter

ScanStation is a revolution for microbiological analyses : it detects and count colonies as soon as they appear at the beginning of the incubation. It is a real-time revolution providing anticipated results for control quality labs in the pharmaceutical, agro-food, cosmetic industries and research. The anticipated results saves time and allows earlier release of production batches.


« To actually see, in real-time, the video of bacterial growth on the Petri dishes is truly innovative. Counting the colonies from the first stages of their development is really surprising for a microbiologist and ensure a totally new quality and speed of results.» says Sylvie Viboud, PhD, Head of Microbiology at INTERSCIENCE.
