With ProtoCOL 3 clinical microbiologists can in seconds automatically identify and accurately count colonies of superbugs including, Carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae, MRSA and multidrug-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
The compact system can process up to 300 plates/hour, detecting colonies as small as 43 microns and is so versatile that it can identify superbugs grown on chromogenic media from all major suppliers on 30-150mm plates.
ProtoCOL 3 uses unique three colour LED lighting to produce precise full-colour images of all colony colours and the software automatically captures and stores publication ready plate images and numerical data. This state-of-the-art technology can be integrated with the laboratory’s choice of PC, eliminating counting and keying errors that can occur when manually processing large numbers of plates, ensuring microbiologists can accurately track and trace incidence of superbugs in their hospital.
