What is it?
The PhenoBooth+ Colony Counter is a fast, super-easy to use, closed-chamber Colony Counter for imaging and analysis of colonies on agar. It uses a scientific-grade camera and produces 23-megapixel plate images. It includes five lighting channels to capture high-resolution colony images from Petri dishes and rectangular plates.
How does it work?
Insert a Petri dish with visible bacteria, yeast or other microorganisms into the input tray; select your preferred wavelength; autofocus and capture your plates in seconds. Filter for properties of interest just once; hit ‘Batch Analyse’ and walk away as PhenoBooth+ automates the tedious analysis across all of your plates with a single click.
Colonies can be filtered by size, colour, circularity and brightness. Applications include Colony Counting, Growth Curves, and Fluorescence (BFP/GFP/YFP/mCherry*) Detection.
*The PhenoBooth+ is not a microscope! It is a macroscopic CCD imaging workstation. As such it will not detect sub-cellular or low levels of expression.
