Scan 1200 Colony Counter


Scan 1200 is an HD automatic colony counter. It adapts itself to all media and counts in 1 click all colonies even the smallest ones. It ensures accuracy and excellent reproducibility. Images and results are saved automatically. Scan 1200 is also an inhibition zone reader.

  • Minimum size of detected colony: 0.05 mm
  • Camera: 1.2 megapixels - zoom x 28
  • Counting on Ø 55 - 90 mm round Petri dishes
  • Counting on pour, surface, Spiral, circle mode plated Petri dishes
  • Counting on chromogenic agar, PetriFilmTM, MC-media PadsTM, Compact DryTM, Easy PlateTM, filtration membranes
  • Inhibition zone reader

Large reading range

The Scan 1200 allows reading on Ø 55 - 90 mm Petri dishes and works with numerous media and supports. Scan 1200 reads also inhibition zones on round Petri dishes.

Accuracy and repeatability

The counting of Petri dishes is long, tedious and can vary from one person to another.

The Scan 1200 can count up to 1000 colonies in 1 second in a constant and repeatable mode. Counting accuracy reach up to 98%. The minimum colony size is 0.05 mm.

Dark Field lighting technology

Thanks to the Dark Field technology and its low lighting, colonies are easy to count. The operator does not tire his eyes.

Traceability system with DataLink

Ideal with dataLink full traceability system

dataLink is a complete traceability system for the microbiological analysis of a sample, from its plating with easySpiral Pro or easySpiral Dilute platers to colony counting. After incubation, the reading of the datamatrix code makes it possible to collect the information of the sample and its plating and to automatically launch on the colony counter the associated parameters.
