Autoplate, QCount, and Anoxomat Featured at asm2011
Advanced Instruments featured several of its industry-leading automated microbiology systems in its booth, #1021, at asm2011. They included:
- The new Autoplate Spiral Plating System, which provides 50% faster cycle times — 35 seconds as opposed to 70 seconds; a new Windows® CE–based touchscreen display; and an expanded range of analysis that includes two new spiral plating modes. The system improves productivity, offers greater detection sensitivity and repeatability, and reduces consumables, compared with previous models.
- The new QCount colony counting system, which incorporates all the industry-leading features from both the black-and-white QCount and the Color QCount systems into one instrument, at a new lower price. The QCount provides sharp, error-free plate counts without complex color adjustments. It offers the resolution needed to count the smallest colonies, and the flexibility to count pour, spread, spiral, and color plates.
- The AnoxomatTM anaerobic system, for the cultivation of bacteria. In less than 3 minutes, the instrument creates anaerobic and microaerophilic environments in reusable jars, eliminating the handling, cost, and hazardous waste associated with gas-bag and chamber systems.
