    Fully automated colony counting system


Walk-away design

Featuring an integrated plate feeder, colony counter and software based on Synbiosis’ tried and trusted ProtoCOL technology, an AutoCOL can automatically remove your plate lids and count colonies on up to one hundred, 90 mm plates in under an hour

Simple Software

With intuitive touch-screen software you con to AutoCOL via USB, you can easily set up automatic plate reads and optimize batch des for each plate type. You can set user access le and even set up pass/fail limits enabling your AutoCOL to track and stack all pass/fail plates speci?c places in the plate feeder.

Accurate counts

Combining unique three color lighting and a sensitive camera, with an AutoCOL you’ll capture full color images of all microbial colony types, to generate precise, reproducible counts.

Fully traceable

Compatible with 1D barcode readers, you can export images or numerical results automatically from an AutoCOL into a range of formats (XLS, PDF, CSV) or to your LIMS. This ensures your data is secure and has a complete audit trail, making it fully 21 CFR Part 11 compliant.


Flexible applications

AutoCOL is perfect for high-throughput colony counting and is being trialed in highly regulated pharmaceutical and contract research microbiology laboratories for a wide range of microbial colony counting applications including:

  • Microbial environmental monitoring
  • Microbial limits testing
  • Eficacy testing
