2 September 2009

This application note demonstrates how any QC department can quickly and easily process large numbers of routine quality assurance tests in minutes instead of days using a Synbiosis ProtoCOL automated colony counter. In addition, a ProtoCOL can provide QC departments with the capacity to handle extra food samples and can also help free up valuable time for microbiologists to carry out the specialist tests necessary to rapidly locate the source of a food poisoning outbreak.
