State of the art, plate handling device that allows robotic colony counting of 240 plates per hour, the Plate – Handler offers a hands-free solution for large capacity labs.

The Flash & Grow colony counter unit is mounted high on the right side of the Plate Handle. This option is available as an upgrade at any time.

80 plate carrousel is loaded, and 20 plates column is pushed into position, where each plate bar code is read (if option requested), lid removed and plate counted on the Flash & Grow reading stage. The plate lid is placed back, and the unit continues to the next plate.

The unit allows flexible loading of various plate types with diverse back ground colors and colonies growth.

  • True one push button operation with no need to stand next to the counter with great R.O.I.
  • 80 plates are counted in 20 minutes from an interchangeable carousel.
  • Compact footprint with a quiet operation.
