Automatic Spiral platers

Microprocessor controlled plating, in exponential, circular, or constant (easySpiral Pro) modes in 25 seconds. The Spiral method deposits the sample on the surface of a rotating Petri dish by a precise measuring micropump, according to a logarithmically decreasing Archimedes spiral from the centre of the dish to its periphery. According to the setting, the plating corresponds to 3 or 4 dilutions compared to the traditional method. The volume is calibrated and known at every point of the Petri dish. After incubation, the colonies appear as a spiral trace on the dish. Counting can be done manually with a counting grid or a Scan® 100, or automatically with a colony counter such as Interscience Scan® 300, Scan® 500, Scan® 1200 or Scan® 4000.
