The Spiral® method is intended to automate the routine work of bacterial enumeration. A logarithmically decreasing volume of sample is dispensed on the surface of a rotating Petri dish in an Archimedes spiral, and the volume is calibrated and known at every point of the Petri dish. This technique allows plating on a single Petri dish without serial dilutions.

Since the spiral method was patented in 1992, the Spiral® automatic platers have been a reference for applications in food microbiology, medical bacteriology, research on food preservatives or cosmetological factors in compliance with the AFNOR V08-100 and ISO 7218 standards. The instrument is available in 2 versions to fit either semi automated laboratories, or fully automated laboratories using bar coded Petri dishes and PC connectivity to spreadsheets or LIMS.
