Colony Counting & Analysis: Upgrade to PhenoBooth+

Discover the benefits and upgrade to the PhenoBooth+ 

Looking for higher-resolution images of your colonies?

Well, we have listened to your feedback and now bring you the PhenoBooth+.

And guess what? Your original PhenoBooth is also upgradable!



Experience advanced colony counting with the PhenoBooth+! Bringing you a vastly improved 41-megapixel camera, which generates a plate resolution of 23MP meaning your images are 4x better than before.


Say goodbye to downtime, PhenoBooth+ has undergone Singer Instruments’ most stringent software reliability testing ever. It’s the perfect tool for colony counting. Offering reliable, clear and precise results, across a range of workflows.


Twice the ram means faster image analysis and almost twice the processing speed, allowing you to run more plates. With 32x more storage you can run as many plates as you require. Trace your colonies and interpret the data in the clarity of a new 21.5″ flat screen monitor.
