Walk-away design

With an integrated plate feeder & colony counting software built on Synbiosis’s trusted ProtoCOL technology, the AutoCOL can automatically image and analyse up to 100 plates within 45 minutes.

Simple software

Users can set up automated readings and optimise batch designs for each plate type, and with the help of user-friendly software the AutoCOL can be linked directly to your LIMs. The AutoCOL can also stack plates based on pass/fail criteria determine by the user, stacks are illuminated different colour to assist with inspection/unloading.

Accurate counts

Users can obtain precise, reproducible counts using AutoCOL combining three-color illumination with a sensitive scientific grade camera to take full-colour images of microbial colonies.

Fully traceable

Users can automatically export results from AutoCOL into a variety of formats such as (XLS, PDF, CSV), as well as directly into LIMS, a 2D scanner is built into the device as standard to process any 1D or 2D plate identifiers. The software is fully compliant with 21 CFR Part 11 with extensive audit trails that track each and every user action.

Flexible applications

From highly regulated pharmaceutical to contract research microbiology facilities, the AutoCOL is ideal for high-throughput automated colony counting in applications including:

  • Microbial limits testing
  • Efficacy testing
  • Microbial environmental monitoring
