Ideal for all microbiology applications, the SC6 colony counter
provides fast and accurate counting of bacterial and mould colonies.
The SC6 colony counter is easy to use. Simply place the Petri dish on
the electronic pressure pad and touch the dish with a felt tip pen to
mark each colony. The touch pressure causes a count to be registered
on the digital display and an audible tone confirms each count made
(the sound can be switched on or off as desired).
Any suitable implement - a felt tip pen for example - may be used to
apply pressure to the dish. The sensitivity required to register a count
can be adjusted to suit with an easy to use dial.
This unit can also be used to count multiple plates, and then calculate
the average colony count via the built-in averaging facility.
A choice of either white or black background on which to view
colonies is available. The black background aids the viewing of
difficult, translucent colonies. Two dish centering adapters are
provided to enable the use of 50 to 90mm Petri dishes. In addition,
the receiver dish may be easily removed for cleaning.
The SC6 colony counter is supplied complete with one Wolffhuegel
graticule, one segmentation disc and two centering adapters for 50 to
90mm Petri dishes. A choice of magnifiers is available to aid easier
counting of smaller colonies.
