Iris, our automated colony counter, that works!

Iris is a newly developed automated colony counter. It quickly and accurately counts colony's grown in Petri dishes or Petri film of various sizes. Counting bacterial colonies on microbiological culture plates is time consuming and error prone, but extremely important in microbiology. Our automated colony counter Iris, performs this based on artificial intelligence.

The solutions contain the latest robotics and machine learning technologies and this colony counter is totally designed, created, programmed and build "in house" at AAA Lab Equipment B.V.

How do you use the automatic colony counter Iris?

Iris is very easy to use, you don’t have to rack your brains, and you don’t have to count anything. It's a matter of training. The steps of the automated colony counter Iris are:

  1. Scan the barcode of the petri dish or petri film
  2. Remove the lid and place the dish in the colony counter
  3. Take a picture of the colony's and check the picture on the screen
  4. Validate the results of the (AI) camera
