Turning dots to data has never been easier
The IncuCount 150 is an extraordinarily simple-to-use device for counting cell colonies, even as they grow. With selection criteria for size, color, and intensity, this device is a must-have for any lab regularly working with cells in petri dishes. Plaque formation? It can do that. Growth inhibition zones? Not a problem. You can also “blank” against an empty calibration plate to improve the count accuracy by removing illumination artifacts, or create a library of preset parameters for the plate types you count most regularly. These parameters can include minimum and maximum size of colonies, color of colonies, brightness, contrast, intensity gate for counting, and even a stored calibration image. Just choose the setting profile, and with a single click you can count one plate after another! The actual count processing time is well under ten seconds, and is saved as an easy-to-read pdf file. Better yet, the IncuCount interfaces with an Android tablet loaded with super flexible application software. In fact, data can be emailed in real-time for those who need to know that your experiment is proceeding apace! And the whole thing is affordable and compact—you can rest easy knowing that your lab doesn’t need to dig too deep to afford such a useful device.
