NEW AutoCOL, the First Fully Automated Walk-Away Colony Counting System from Synbiosis

publication date: Nov 23, 2020
author/source: Synbiosis


The AutoCOL fully automated colony counting system allows the user to count colonies from 100 plates in 40 minutes, a task which no other colony counter currently on the market can perform.

Built around Synbiosis’ gold standard ProtoCOL technology, AutoCOL can produce precise images of bacteria, yeast, and mould cultured on any agar plate.
Compared to manual counting the AutoCOL has the capability to increase plate reading productivity by over 700 percent. The system can analyse around 260,000 plates per year, over seven-times more than an average technician reading 36,400 plates annually (at an average 300 plates per day). Based on this throughput, Synbiosis estimates that in just two years firms could recover the cost of their AutoCOL, because of their extra capacity to take on additional testing work and contracts, without increasing their headcount.”
