photoThis colony counter features a compact viewer with incident, dark-field and transmitted illumination options and recently introduced image analysis software.
     The Optomax Sorcerer Image Analysis System is a video camera-based colony counter with a compact viewer that provides illumination for different types of growth media and cultures. Using intense, cool white light for contrast, the system includes a matrix detection algorithm that compensates for objects within the image that have different contrast levels.
      Supplied with Windows compatible image analysis software for R&D and quality control testing, and a current high-speed PC, the system is available with a high-resolution 1280 x 1030 pixels CCD camera. Captured images can be saved to disk for subsequent processing and the system links directly to an Excel spreadsheet for processing via Excel macros.
