Overall, we are very satisfied with the platform. It is a mainstay of our workflow.
Application Area: Enumeration of microbial cells
"We use the Logos QUANTOM Tx (QTx) to enumerate various species of bacteria grown in liquid media. Prior to purchasing the QTx, enumeration was done via the spread-plate method. The rapid quantitation afforded by the QTx allows us to have a result in as little as 30 minutes, compared to 3 days for the spread-plate method. We have also found the QTx useful for determining the proportion of live/dead cells within a sample. The simplicity and ease of use of the QTx allows for rapid training of new operators and excellent repeatability. In addition, Logos' after-sales service has been exceptional."

Great results. I am very happy with the instrument.
Application Area:Enumerating bacteria in a liquid suspension
"The instrument is very easy to use. The sample prep is quick and the the replicates are pretty tight. I used it for counting very small cells, as well as bacteria that grow in chains or clusters and the software does a great job analyzing the image. I compared the results to other methods and the results are spot on. Overall, I am very happy with the purchase."
The QUANTOM Tx™ Microbial Cell Counter is an image-based, automated cell counter that can identify and count individual bacterial cells in mere minutes.
The sophisticated QUANTOM™ cell counting algorithm is the first of its kind, capable of detecting individual bacterial cells regardless of their diverse morphologies and arrangements. Multiple images of fluorescence-stained cells are captured and analyzed automatically for rapid and accurate bacterial cell counts.
- Minutes to results
- No culturing required
- Objective and no user-to-user variability
- No estimating based on colony forming units or turbidty
Single bacterium detection
- Regardless of cell shape, size, or arrangement
- Sophisticated bacterial cell counting software
