Automated Colony Counting

Affordable Automated Colony Counting

aCOLyte 3 HD is the latest affordable, automated colony counting device from Synbiosis. The aCOLyte 3 HD is available in one configuration and features new simple-to-use software that greatly improves efficiency, reliability and productivity over previous models.

The new aCOLyte 3 HD software uses a powerful new algorithm for colony counting on pour and spiral plates which until now were only found on the advanced ProtoCOL 3 models. Plates are automatically counted with results directly transferred to Excel or Open office.

The new style aCOLyte 3 HD accepts plates up to 90mm diameter. Lighting is provided by LEDs mounted above and below the sample area for both transmitted and epi illumination. A detachable screen can be used to eliminate strong ambient light if required.

aCOLyte 3 HD can be used with any conforming laptop or desktop PC and connects simply by using a USB port.
