Iris, our artificial intelligence colony counter

Iris is a newly developed automatic colony counter. It quickly and accurately counts colonies 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 colony counter Iris performs this on the basis of artificial intelligence.

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

How do you use the 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 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 the picture and check the picture on the screen
  4. Validate the results of the (AI) camera
