INTERSCIENCE is pleased to announce the launching of ScanStation, real-time incubator and colony counter at MEDICA in Düsseldorf, Germany (November 16-17, 2017).
The ScanStation is a revolution for microbiological analyses: it detects and counts colonies as soon as they appear at the beginning of the incubation. It is a real-time revolution providing anticipated results for control quality labs in the pharmaceutical, agro-food, cosmetic industries and research. The anticipated results save time and allow earlier release of production batches.
With this new technology, microbiologists can actually see, in real-time, the video of bacterial growth on the Petri dishes. This innovation is a mix between classic methods with the Petri dish and the latest innovations in robotic and computing, providing analyses’ results with unequalled accuracy and much sooner, says Emmanuel JALENQUES, Head of R&D and Co-CEO of INTERSCIENCE.
The major innovation of the ScanStation is the automatic counting of the colonies at an early stage of their development, starting at the beginning of the incubation cycle. Up to 100 Petri dishes are counted every 30 minutes throughout the process, delivering a video recording of the bacterial growth. Final results are known 3 times sooner and faster because up to 100 Petri dishes are processed simultaneously and with unequalled accuracy as colonies are detected before clustering or covering can occur.
Interscience has been an industry leader in the field of microbiological analysis for the food, agrofood, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, veterinary, medical, environmental and chemical industries, research institutes and universities since 1979.
Designer and manufacturer, we provide labs with scientific equipment to guarantee safe products for consumption.
Our French family business is run by co-CEO brothers Emmanuel and Jules Jalenques with 80 colleagues working in 5 locations: Saint Nom and Mourjou in France, Boston (USA), Singapore and Shanghai (China).
