Semi-Automated Early-CFU Colony Counter
Counting microorganisms at their microcolony culture stage
The MICA Fluorescence Counter makes it possible to count objects (such as micro colonies) on a membrane. The optical system of the counter takes very high-resolution snapshots of each membrane, which are then analyzed by the MICA Fluorescence counter’s software to determine the precise number of objects present on the membrane.
An extreme sensitivity allowing to detect microorganisms at their early culturable stage
Thanks to an unmatched optical resolution among colonies counters, MICA is capable of detecting and counting microorganisms at their microcolony stage.
Fluorescence detection and bright field
A semi-automatic solution, easy to use and to implement
Designed as a turnkey solution, MICA is easy to use and to implement, by all technicians. The operator is guided step-by-step through a simplified protocol according to the targeted microorganism. The automatic counting of microcolonies ensures fewer uninterpretable results than traditional culture method, faster
Integrated safety and traceability
MICA includes a software according to the targeted microorganism. The use of MICA is 21 CFR Part 11 compliant. The analysis history is accessible, and all data are exportable and can be integrated into a LIMS or CRM system making of MICA an essential decision support tool.
A smart counter easily integrated into a LEAN management system
MICA has been specifically created to meet laboratories’ and industrials’ needs to improve their productivity.
