What is ColonyCam® VOGUE?

A bench-top, microbial imaging workstation, developed from the ground up to take high-resolution, super-highly uniform colour photography of microbial colonies on agar.

Why waste your time analysing low-quality images?

Begin with uncompromising quality: leverage high-resolution optics and advanced lighting technology with ColonyCam VOGUE. High-resolution makes it easier to set thresholds objectively and consistently to maximise detection of even the smallest colonies and features. Uniform illumination ensures precise phenotyping data for every colony on the plate and enhances the reproducibility of experiments. Standardise source data acquisition by starting with a top-tier image, eliminating the need for complex pre-analysis workarounds.
