ColonyDoc-It™ Imaging Station
by UVP

Quickly counts colonies with easy click
interactive software
The ColonyDoc-It Imaging Station streamlines counting protocols with multiple excitation sources for white light, fluorescent and GFP colonies. The single click software quickly delivers results from time lapse counting, zone sizing and spiral counting. The unit easily and accurately detects colonies with a built-in epi blue light for fluorescence and an optimized GFP filter.

  • Visualizes white light and fluorescent colonies
  • Captures colony sizes as small as 0.08mm
  • DigiCam 130 camera
  • 17.9 Megapixels resolution
  • Wide range of emission filters available
  • Plate alcove accommodates pour, spread and spiral plates and filters with sizes from 33mm to 150mm
  • Defines parameters including eight color differentiation, split or merge, filter by group or size
  • Detachable doors creates a darkroom environment when imaging colonies with GFP fluorescence
  • Darkfield, Epi and transillumination white light and Epi blue light fluorescence sources
  • Colony Counter Software included
  • Applications: microbiology, hygiene studies, antibiotic testing, QC and fluid contamination
